Hello FredS
Damme.

No words.

Truly sorry.
Sorry Mont.

I reseasoned my humidor today and added a digital hygrometer although the analog one was more stylish.

Farts are either proof that God is a man or a sign of a fallen world.

It's been a very busy week here in CO Springs this week. Long days, but yet a quick week. Hope to finish the job here tmrw and get home.
The power is now back on at home in SE Texas. Severe weather and tornados tore through last Thurs night. No house damage that I found, but we were without power from Thurs night through Monday afternoon.
This forum has been mostly out of sight and out of mind since Easter, essentially. Been too busy. But meanwhile one of my grandsons got a scholarship to Notre Dame, another grandson is now the starting left guard on his eighth grade a-team football team (finishing up spring training), my oldest grandson just finished his college finals, got a job, and bought a new used pickup, and my oldest granddaughter made her high school soccer team today.
We handed out Bibles at a middle school last Wed, but got rained out and drenched to the bone on Thurs, and with Thurs nights weather, schools were cancelled on Friday. I may get a chance to help hand out Bibles next week, God willing.

I'm struggling to keep up with life. But I'm now nearing 2nd Chronicles in my study-the-Bible-through 2019 quest, so I've got that going. Haven't been smoking much, but I brought several pipes and tobacco samples with me here to Colorado, in case there was a meet up, which apparently there won't be. Everyone's busy. The older I get the busier I am it seems, and the faster that time is flying. (Ain't I full of s*** tonight?).
Anyway, it'll likely be a while before I post again. Y'all take care.

Yep. Busy. I was off work Monday to visit my dad and drive from KC back to FOCO. My boss and our customers don't seem to get the idea behind taking time off so I'm shoving 5 days of work in to 4 days this week. Sorry we weren't able to make the meet up happen.

Sweet&Sour is just 50ish miles from my house and circumstances have lined up so that we are unable to meet for a smoke and chit chat :(

I got through on the Rush Limbaugh show today. I talked about Comey and Brennan. I was brilliant.

I have only ever called into a radio show once in my life. I answered a trivia question correctly on a gardening show and won a book on tropical plants.

I can't remember the question, though.
