Hey all

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Before Christmas, Susan and I went to Vegas and we learned a new way on how to lose money... quickly! We had a blast though. We went to the Valley of Fire Canyon and checked out a few new casinos. On Christmas Day we went to San Antonio to spend some time with David, Susan's brother. All he wanted for Christmas was my truck. He got a lot of other stuff though. We got back Monday afternnoon and then I took my mom to Gulfport Miss. on Tuesday to see my Aunt and Uncle and my cousins Greg and Jeff. I haven't seen Jeff in almost 26 years. He lives in Taiwan and is married to Opal and has two beautiful little girls. If I get a chance, since Opal took some pics and we exchanged blog sites I'll post a few pics if I can figure out how to move them over here from her blog. I also got to see some of the devastation from Katrinna and am amazed at how bad off the area looks a year and a half later. It was unreal. We returned home on Thursday night.
The truck ran well and did 2200 miles on one tank of diesel and has now gone over 11,000 miles since being converted to the veg oil. I'll put up some stats later on that.
Thanks for visiting guys and Tom.... I didn't get the feeling of being seasick until we got the new mattress... a tempurpedic... and when one lays down in it one gets this sinking feeling sensation. Coupled with the mural we both felt like we could have hurled a time or two,lol.
Pamela... I wish I was that talented .... I can make the stone head guys, but my painting and sculpting abilities aren't as good as Mike's(the artist who we collect the fish from and who painted our room)
Well that's about all i have. Have a good one!
