I'm out.
Jeep not done.
F350 out of order.
Tbird pissing me off.
Annie is still crushing me inside.
Foot injury has screwed up me being able to work and walk for the most part.
Work is up for sale, future there unknown.
I'm supposed to work till 5am Fri and again from 4pm Fri till 1am Sat.
2 major bills due in the mail anyday now.
Mom is wasting alot of my time.
Life is starting to suck major balls.

It would take days to explain the above and probably bore you to death. I still have it better than alot of people but reality is cruel. Being alone, and with your only family member 1000 miles away and acting like a 16 year old is not helping. All the same I'll push forward when possible. I've only got 10 months till Ouray.

Tom,

If there's anything I can do let me know.

And ten months should be plenty of time to get both out jeeps together.

Mike

So just 3 of ya showed up?
Did you get any pics of bridges?

Did you see what the Jack wad did with the semi truck and covered bridge in North East IN ??? I still need to find those pics, I'm sure someone has them. I think he was running from the law and stuffed his rig through a covered bridge.

So would that be unlawful carnal knowledge of a covered bridge then?

There were 3 of us there for this meet. Hopefully next year we can do it again, but with more attendees. In spite of the minimal turnout, we had a good time sitting around the campfire telling stories and comparing notes. Again, my Cherokee was the only FSJ in attendance. She now has a perfect record... 4 events.....4 shows.

Now....we need to make plans for a mid-winter meet like we had last year. I'm sure we can find a nice place with clean cabins like we did last time.
