Paul, I know for a fact, that crazy canun his heading south bound toward the Palmetto State, all the local authorities have been notified in case he tries to bring in some crawfish to the state. Kind of think I would know him by his accent, since we have spoke often on the phone.

THanks for the warning!

It is a fact that I am headed south. I thought the civil war was started again with all the norther police shooting radar at me. Man I though only the Louisiana police had enough time to sit on the highways and shoot as us like this. We are having a great time.

Started my HW tirp with Worried Guy (Jeff) and Barb. What a Joy. Really did nothing but visited and go to know each other as dear friends.

Second phase of HW was a trip to the Boys school...mmmm.. Paul and Family could not have been any more fun. We felt that we had known them for years. The trip to NYC was just a bonus.

On the way south we have visited West Point. As a sr counselor in a high school I was lucky enough to place 2 students in West Point and I had never been there. What a charge.

This is in fact the 3rd HW guy that I have met face to face. I think that we should make a real effort to have a gathering like the one that Jeff does in NY. I know that he is planning another gathering in Sept. I am marking it on my calender. Think I have enough fly miles will fly in for the visit. Wish more of the guys would join us.

Today I got a great invite to drop in on Opa N and possibly visit with Keysailfisher as well. Hope it works out. I know I am the richer for this trip.

I have said many time what a great group of guys we have on the board. I have more confirmation after this trip..

Hide the Wimmin and chil'un! (Or you can just hide the Caverject.)

We had Zatarain's Red beans and rice for dinner tonight and bread puddin' for dessert. Yum.

Maybe next time we'll have it south of the Mason Dixon Line.
