Moral of the story... TREX is the way to go!

Saturday night, we received a call from our son (5 minutes only) but it was a really nice surprise; (he's in his 4th week in boot camp, Air Force), he's doing really well and he said he really misses us. He said he has learned that by being there, he now has learned to appreciate all the things that we have ever done for him in the past... "We were hoping that that would happen", I believe he needed and got a reality check, lol...

Well, my countdown clock has officially started for the start of our vacation (Universal Studios/ Sea World, Orlando FL). Ahhhhh yes, 10 days in sunny Florida... I'm ready now!!!
ur vaca sounds awesome. Staining a deck is a bigtime chore that I hate. so good u got to hear from ur son. please thank him for his service for me. God bless.

MGramsey, I'm sorry to hear ur Mother is in the hospital. My prayers are w/ her & y'all.

Snow, have fun w/ ur cousins this weekend.

Sugar, are u going to Myrtle Beach next week? it's grad week then & Sun Fun week, it'll be crowded so be safe & have a blast!

I do it also, but your fingertips freeze trying to write with a pencil.
Just finishing up "The Night They Saved Christmas" now, started it last Wednesday, and finally have the time to watch the rest of it now. I want to set up my tree now. I really need to get this DVD, along with Will Vinton's Claymation Christmas, those will be the next Christmas DVD's I add to my collection.

I need to start getting things ready for work.

Have a good day at work!!!!!

My first concert was Ozzy Osbourne, April 1982 Hampton Roads, VA. I was in the 3rd row and man was it ever smokey in there, I believe I left there dazed, deaf and walking sideways..... (Hmmmm, what...I do not recall anything.....)

After that, I was hooked, I saw Kiss (5 times), Triumph (3 times), AC-DC, Def Leppard, Rush, Dokken, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Styx (twice), Motley Crue, Iron Maiden (twice), Kix (5 times and also got on stage with them once), Judas Priest (4 times), Ratt, Journey, Foreigner, REO Speedwagon, Hank Williams Jr., Dio, Crack the Sky and more...

It's a wonder that I can hear anything now adays, "Huh, What's that you said honey....????)

I still have two concert tee's from the 80's; Kiss and Lynyrd Skynyrd...

I wish I could have seen some of the older groups like Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Stones when they were at their peaks, that would have been great.... But, as life would have it now, I mention groups like Kiss to my kids now a days, and they say man those guys are old....Their like, ummm from the 80's dad...

I would of loved to have met him.... I saw his name in your post and I have to tell this. This past weekend, we were watching a movie called the Birdcage, (with Robin Williams, Nathan lane, gene Hackman) and in that movie, which is a scream to watch in the first place, is a clip, a skit about John Wayne that you'll die laughing about.

Well, I about thought I was going to fall off the couch from laughing so hard, especially when Nathan lane was trying to walk like John Wayne. I was screaming, laughing so hard, I had tears coming from my eyes and gasping for breath laughing soooo hard. My daughter was rolling around the floor from laughing so hard, I just kept on saying, "that's not right"...

Anyways, when you get the chance watch the movie, you'll pee yourself from laughing so hard....
