Would if I could Gilles! Still need the money however, so I'll just make it a short day rather than a whole day off!

Dick, she ain't gonna use any candles cause they would melt the cake! Blizzard cake that is!

And Dan, it would have been Pheasant under Helmet, not Glass! Marilyn says she is thinking about putting a bounty out on pheasants for anyone willing to hunt em down and kill em!

Tks all for the wishes gang!

I'd take her up on that but I don't want to turn them in, they're too good for eatin'. However I submit that head butting pheasant isn't the most efficient means of hunting them. I just thank God she's OK.

...and Happy Birthday to you.

Wow, that was quite a story. Glad both of ya'll are okay, just sorry your bride had to go through the pain and aggravation. Let's face it though, without a little adventure, what will we talk about when we all get to old to lift a leg across a motorcycle anyway ?

Sorry to say I missed CCR, but sure am glad ya'll didn't!
