TT, no donations please. We didn't have to pay for anything, except the permit to have a party (a party consists of 10 or more people). I've never HEARD of having to get a permit before in any of the parks. Obviously, the girl that took the "good" shelter, didn't either. Ok, I'm not going to get myself started on that one again! I'm telling myself to "shut up! Get over it!"

I do have to tell a story on Brenda. I brought a couple of big commercial rolls of toilet paper, and NO I didn't steal them either. Anyway, I took one roll over to the porta potty and left it. Later in the day, Brenda and I were over at the porta potty, spotted a girl on a bicycle with a Big roll of paper on her handle bars. Brenda looked at me and said check the Potty. I looked in and shook my head "No". She went over and snatched that toilet paper right off the handle bars of that girls bicycle!! There is nothing worse than a toilet paper thief. I just wanted to let out a big MUmawwwww!

Brenda---you probably saved some recent graduate a real doozie of a toilet-papering of their yard!! Good job!!!

DW---I thought someone said you got those rolls from work---and so I repeated it. So sorry!!

I think it probably saved some of us as well!!!!! And yes the paper was a donation from the truck docks of GE. Not often we get mistaken & unclaimed shipments but we did that time!!! Maybe Columbus should thank DW also for doing their stocking job!!!

Is today your birthday Brenda????

Heck yes---Dr Watson should at least get her deposit/fee back since she supplied Columbus toilet paper?! Good grief. DW---I think that would make a GREAT LTC---girl riding off with commercial toilet paper roll streaming behind her in a mad dash not to get caught by our very own Brenda!

I have to 100% agree---Sunday was so badly needed!!! I have had a very difficult time focusing on my to-do list today because it was such a welcomed letterboxing diversion yesterday! My "balance" has definitely been out of whack lately!

That paper was left in a truck along with paper towels that some company had over shipped ( we are guessing), and the trailer was left on our lot with the excess left in it. Our department didn't know what to do with it. You can't throw it away! Well, I guess you could, but some people took some home and there is still Boxes left at work.

DW the moral of this story is never get Brenda upset.

It was so much fun. Lot's of great stamps and lots of fun hanging with my boxing friends.

A huge thank you to Dr Watson for having the event and all the boxers that helped her. What a great time!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh! lol Is THAT what I said---what you meant---!! =} lol

NOW I get it! I just meant I've been working non-stop and needed that break yesterday more than I realized----but you probably already figured all of that out!

Actually---what I want is some of what Becky had! =}}} You know---do NOT exit that ride (add roller coaster ride here!) until it comes to a complete stop! If that is too difficult to tell---we will help! lol Just remember---I refused to be held accountable for anything either!

Hey all attendees or viewers of yesterday's Gather at Camp Chase. If you liked the buttons everyone was sporting on their upper torso, give Honychile a holler about what all is available and cost. I have no idea of the answer to either question but do know she does excellent work....and the T shirt was also a work of art but I did not feel up to modeling it for you all and figured you did not want me to anyway. Keep her in mind when needing stuff like that.
SM
And in case it crossed your mind, nope I do not get a cut....... just appreciative of their hospitality down south!!

Funny, I guess I'm not the only one who gets stuff left over in trucks. The stock people in the stores hide things (besides empty booze bottles) inside of the empty pans where they get found by me. I found a black Odd lots smock yesterday and a commercial toilet paper roll about a month ago.

I didn't hear the whole conversation, but I did hear something about not exiting the ride until it comes to a complete stop...not sure if that fits here or not... ;P

Not to long ago, there was a semi truck tire in one of the trailers. So, if you see an 18 wheeler with 17 wheels, you can tell him where his tire is at.

I'm looking forward to it, For Sure, SM! I just read my Yahoo email. Heather is going to Turkey for training !!! Now, my heart is racing again. I'm not sure if I told you, but she is pregnant again. I didn't think they would send her places pregnant.

Congratulations on Heathers Expectant conditon....I think. That is good isn't it? Maybe not the greatest timing but I would think that would have a bearing on deployment. Way back when (not quite as far back as was the case with Coffee Mug however,) I was in the military
but we did not have as many women in the service so I did not hear stories such as this nor did I know the protocal concerning these situations. I hope everything works out the best for Heather. Healthy child and Mom is first priority in my opinion.

Happy Cake Day


Thanks Jeeves! I know you're probably tired of hearing me say that. You, Steve, Happy Trails, Trailtracker, Coffee, Granny, heck the whole bunch were absolute blessings Sunday. It is great how LB people are always trying to help each other out. You don't find that anywhere else. At least, I don't. [DW on the clock now so I better slither away]
