    Not making it this year, Jason. The company decided not to send David to the show this year, and I wasn't too keen on being in Vegas in July again anyway. Have a good time, but remember - it's just another woodworking show.

    Aww bummer, Nancy! I was hoping to reunite with you, too.

    I don't blame you for avoiding vegas in july, though. It's gonna hit 110!!! YIKES!

    While it's just another woodworking show, it's the biggest I'll have any hope of seeing so it's a bigger deal to me, I guess.

    Hopefully we can meet up again sometime. I had a great time with you and David in '07

    Probably a good Decision, Nancy. The LOML called from the Airport there at 3:45 PM Vegas time & said it was 109* F, and is supposed to be 111* tomorrow, & glad she was leaving to go to Houston. (I'll bet is isn't real cool in Houston either).

    Only one problem with that suggestion, Larry - and it's a four-letter word - SNOW!!!

    Leo,
    If you made it in time for the show, without the A/C you'd probably be Well Done by the time you got there! The weather report showed 109+

    My sister in law lives in Houston and said it was 102 or 103 last week..probably same on the humidity level too.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Well - sorry but us New Englanders cannot live in 102 temperatures.

    I think I will need to pass on that show.

    Whew - it sure is HOT today - it's almost 80
