SNOW in northeast today Boys, Looks like a white Christmas for me.

ARMY-NAVY game in Philly will be a snowball fight. Kinda appropriate that ARMY uniforms honor 10 mountain division with ski logos on helmets and uniforms.

Sig, I heard there were a couple new fires flaring up in the San Diego County area. Be safe, my friend.

Good morning on a calm, not windy morning, the first one we've had since Tuesday. Yesterday we had power outages 3 times & Wed. twice, UGH. Some roofs and carports damaged here in the park. Worst wind event we had in about 7 years and the longest lasting. our home survived ok, just some outdoor furniture tossed around, some people in town who HAD Christmas blow ups in their front yard no longer have them, many losses of partial roof tiles and carport overhead aluminum. Gonna be lot's of insurance claims. Off to do a service in Perris, a couple of town's over  at a different Cemetery for a Post Member !

Hey Frank, that's a pretty big chair to fill. Think you have the ass for it?

All kidding aside, great pictures!

Ronny, probably because not many people can roll a joint worth a crap. I still haven't lost my touch.

Harold I would guess it's a supply and demand thing on the Bison and Venison. As for the feral hogs can't figure that one out. In Texas and the southern counties of Oklahoma located near the red river they are a real pest and do millions of damage a year and you can pretty much take all you want and be welcome to them.

My yard is like three acres and about every night I can walk outside and they will as many 10-12 white-tail deer this time of the year. They don't have a lot of weight because they live on acorns in the woods. To our northwest they get much larger ranging on the grain fields.

Dave, need a experts opinion.

Why is called possession of marijuana instead of joint custody ?

Good afternoon Troopers ... ..

Here it is, December already!  In fact, tomorrow is Pearl Harbor Day! A day to stop and remember all who perished that day.

We have put up our decorations for the Christmas Holidays at the RV Park. Making plans to spend time with Family and Friends.

I can only get on here a couple of times a week, due to NO Wi-Fi in the RV Park.

Temperatures have been up in the mid 80's lately but that will change this weekend. Lows will dip into the low to mid 40's (cold for us) and highs will be in the mid to upper 60's for about a week.

Hope all are doing well and will have a great week. 

Toujours Pret!!!
