Sounds like you overdosed on pork and started busting things up when you got back to your room, eh?  :D

The Lakeside Motel is a fine place to stay. I would just make sure to check every little detail of the room for any damage as you check in and make sure the management checks the room for any damage before you check out. ::)

I was certainly counting on attending my first pig roast this year.  I had already done a search on lodging and air flights.

My problem is that I had to move up my total hip replacement from next year to this because the symptoms have progressed pretty rapidly.  Anyway, I will be about 5 weeks post-op when the pig roast convenes, and that may be a little soon for a flight, long drive, meeting strangers I already know, and drinking a few beers.  Maybe not.  So I have to play it by ear this year.  Sorry I can't fully commit, as I was looking forward to meeting my many friends in person.

If you do make it doctorb bring the fishing pole and we'll load into the pickup and hit some local spots if we can get Jeff to point us in the right direction.

And happy birthday!

Happy birthday Doc. I just had one also, just a few shy of the big 60 mark though.

Well it is official. I will not be able to come and meet you guys up North. We are planning a big turn around here at work and they kind of frown on some of us not being here. Maybe next year.

Jeff, Patty is their any thing we can send to help out with? We hate that we won't make it. Ya'll have fun.

Woodchuck, I am just dang happy to be going to the picnic myself !!  Jeff would be the person to ask, but I do know for sure that money is always a welcome gift. Jeff & Tammy put on a huge production for the piggy roast, and I can not even imagine what it must cost them. A donation to help pay for the piggy or for the paper plates and such would certainly be a good place to start.  ;)

 I put in for a couple of days off around the picnic, got my fingers crossed and the Street Glide is ready to fly! It's always 50/50 with me and work lets hope I can swing it.
