Well, well, well.  While Pappy, Sheepdog, and myself are down in Missouri at boot camp, we get invaded from the North!!  And in a flanking maneuver, Johnnyappleseed sneaks in from the west.  Veeery crafty  **)  I'm now beginning to understand that whole "Northern Agression" thing I continue to hear about whenever we sneak down to Missouri   **)

Congrats go out to all those hats...Ahhshoot, nicely done. Garand...why I oughtta   &)   But we have a plan "B".  Always have a plan "B".  Castle Mountain, welcome aboard , sir.  Cherie and Carl, welcome also. 

Illinois has no problem being a training ground.  All know we can use all the help we can get.  We, here in the Land of Suck, are truly blessed to have such great neighbors on all our borders  O0   @)

And all we here is how cold it is...... ::)

Congratulations Ahhshoot! 
I'm sure that Green looks great on you! O0

    G69, while offering up congrats to Ahhshoot on his Green Hat, I can offer a friendly word of warning to be prepared, as they are predicting an unusually cold winter, meaning unrest and turmoil amongst certain population groups.

     It's a well-known historical fact that population movements characterized by the 'locals' as 'invasions' are generally the result of the invaders being pushed by some other population group out of their usual home stomping grounds. Hence, the 'invasion', as they look for another place to settle.

     So, a cold winter means more Canadians heading south to WI, seeking the warmer clime; and means more WIs heading south to IL, being pushed out by those Canadians.

     I say nuttin else...

     Hopefully, when spring comes, the heat in WI will chase the Cs back up north, and everyone can go back to normal...

     But in the meantime, wouldn't hurt to start training those three boys in "volley fire", just in case. >:D

I had my fingers crossed for global warming Fred, heck I have even been throwing cement-truck tires on the bonfire every night just to help things a long, but alas, my attempts have been futile. Besides SamD yelled at me for trying to shorten up NM's Appleseed Season  **)

His mind is probably sharply focused on the Carrolton AS coming up this weekend.  Strateegerizing.   Well Ahhshoot, you worked hard to get where you are.   Congratulations!

Congrats Ahhshoot!  Good job, good work, and guess what?

The hose is far larger than you ever knew!  Now you are on all new lists of jobs and work that needs to be done.

Relax and reflect, but just for a moment.  Soon you will be called on for everything you have done before, and more!
