    Ya'll are makin' me feel bad for the jerky accident. O.K. I'm better now!

    Just got back from a little try out hike up in the back 40. Picked up a great pack at the Goodwill store yesterday. It's a brand new looking Marlboro adventure team backpack. Weighs in at 3# 4ozs.BUT, the suspension system is way better than my other pack so, I tested it today and it really feels great!

    Sounds better than how I'm spending my morning!

    Now would we remind you ... over and over again this weekend ... about the demise of the delicious spicy jerky ... that we won't be enjoying this weekend ... now would we do that?

    Yeah probably so!

    Time dragging again here at work............

    Done at 5, softball game at 6:30, pack the van up at 9, asleep by 10, leave at 4 am, Gorge at noon.

    At least that's the plan.

    ......and now we return you to our regularly scheduled work day...already in progress.
