These people are weird. (most of 'em) You've got class. Help us.

(meant that for Phoebe, you rednecks)

(but not you, Dan K -- JB says you're cool)...

"Pot has been commonly available in SB even when it was illegal."

Where were you, Scott, when the whole town (what of it there was) was dry, and we had to make a midnight run to Denver (or beyond) because everybody was counting on our rusty old bucket of bolts? We painted "Steamboat Or Bust" on the car we left at the Silverthorne junkyard. How times have changed -- and nice to hear from the Wednesday-morning quarterback. Thumb on the pulse.

No biggie; I've been called worse. "old man" really hurts.

I too was Vietnam-era, and I too never served in-country. The Rock is as close as I got. (Okinawa, pretty tropical island.) I would never say "Vietnam Vet" without the "-era" tag, as I will not imply that I witnessed that horrible conflict.

Brian is right, this is no time to orate, but to thank those who gave all they could give, in the name of our country.

Rancher/guide I knew in Idaho could shoe 25 horses and mules in a day -- I only helped a little -- but goats -- well, that's a cat of a different stripe. Maybe we can enlist old Fielding; he knows of such things. Ya listening in, John?

So 'bout where ere ya? Prissy likes North Routt, closest thing to wild we've got, though Stagecoach can provide a fun cruise. Once it dries out a bit. Not that I'm getting tired of polishing pretty Prissy...

Dan -- To be fair -- you should've seen my insults to Mark H the other day -- blatant and demeaning -- yet that didn't get me yanked -- dang it...

You're both right. As long as the Federal Reserve holds all the cards and pulls our strings, we will continue to conquer the world for the Brits, at primarily our own expense, including the lives of our youth.

Halliburton is just the tip of the evil iceberg, how they privatized war, their employees now doing jobs our services used to -- mess, supply, transport, eg -- for ten times the money... think about it too much, I start to get sick.

George -- It took me a minute -- shallow mind -- but you're right!! Neither one of us can afford it. Charity accepted, and will work for gas.

You sound like an interesting cat. Wanna go for a ride? We could drop real names; it'd be so much fun!! I've got roots in the Roaring Fork region, have spent much time there, love that valley as much as this one. We might even know some of the same people; I used to get around.

One contrast between the valleys is, they go to as much trouble to air their dirty laundry, as we go to bury ours.
