Have seen Russ's Bear and the Decor in front. Would love to return again this year as last.  Wife will whip something up and a diet cake for good measure.  Will enjoy seeing all of you again.

The bear is cute but, wait until you see Russ's new toy.

Oh yeah, Phil, the Roomba!  That too!

We had a minirally yesterday at Jeff's spot in Happy Trails.  Attending were Jeff and Sue, Russell, Ned and Lorna, and myself.  During part of the rally, the ladies went into the coach to discuss quilting (or so we think) while the men remained outside and discussed important matters of the world and ate all the food.

LOL Ned!  I can't keep up with the Mahoney toy shop!

I look forward to seeing both the old toy and new toy in action!  :D

Going to start having to call Russ "hot off the press list"  Forever getting something new.  Wish I had his knowledge of some of those things.

We had a great time today at the Happy Trails Forum Rally!

Everyone had a great time, lots of great food including the Reiters' brats, and we got to see Russ's latest toys (and the bear).

Here are a few photos of the afternoon.

Thanks Russ, Lorna, and Ned. ;D ;D

I have back up Jeff 100% on the congrats to Russ, Lorna, and Ned.  Couldn't find any more gracious hosts and hostess if you tried.  Was great renewing members of the framily and listening to some of the ventures and doing from the Q that we missed the year.  Probably one of the best seeings was that of the new Boss at Heliene and Wally's home.  In addition to that the attach machine, Mr Roomba, did it's job and watching Russ twowheeling around with that precious grin from ear to ear was definitely worth the short trip there. To Jeff, Karl, Bernie, and all the gents as well as all the ladies,  Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.  I can say this in all honesty and the lovely wife wasn't too pleased with me repeating the Left me at the Flying J and her short 2 day trip extention on a trip back home. it was truly great cause, I didn't receive any more lumps on the noggin and that alone means it was great.  Again Thank you all for a wonder day.

Thanks for the photos Jeff.   Sorry we couldn't be there.  We are back in cold country again and spent the day with Jack and Liz Pearce yesterday in Hondo, TX.  We leave this morning for South Louisiana for a Lone Star Birds Rally and then on home.

 If a real photographer got a shot of the hard working chef and cook (Lorna and Ned) working away please add it here. I got the one shot I just added of Lorna but every time I got near Ned at the grill I had a plate in my hand instead of a camera. ;D ;D

Sorry Ned!

Great party!  Highlights for me were Russ's roomba, his two wheeler, visiting Phil's antenna farm, and learning about Texas from Lorna!

Could this be the result of leaner cuisine &/or Lorna dragging him out for his morning walks?

No, not competing, just trying as best we can :)  This summer was tough on all of us in the dieting area.
