Welcome back Dave, all the troops that went to the reunion, glad you had a great time. It took 3 friends to get my head out of the oven this weekend. Towards the end of the week I realized I could fly to PA and rent a car. Well, there's the next on. Tom E 4 beautifull gal's. Good way to start the week.

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.
