morning Troopers

Welcome home Dave

Nothing going on here except the skank moved out and took my son with her

It's been raining and it turned cold (down to 59) the last few days,  supposed to be back up to 90 by Friday

RC,

I was too busy dodging beers and recovering from the ones I couldn't avoid to take many pictures. Hopefully somebody else got some.

If you guys don't hear from me right away in the morning, I have 404 e-mails to sort through and I'm sure there will be more tomorrow.

I'll get the lights on the way out.

Thanks John. Totally caught me off guard after the way I'd been ruffling Bill Bewley's feathers the past two days.

Have a safe flight Dave, ....doesn't it feel good to confess?

At the airport in Philly. Be on my way home in about 4.5 hours. I confess. I'm the guy who woke up on the couch with his jeans around his neck.
