Road trip!!
« on: December 29, 2011, 01:01:14 PM »
I guess this is the best place to post this?

We'll be heading out late tonight (Peggy, Ian and I) to go see REDBEE in Texas. We'll be stopping in Mississippi to pick up Bud1 on the way and then stopping in LA to check in on JP and (hopefully) schawee! We won't be spending any great deal of time anywhere but it should be a blast! Can't wait to see everyone!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Road trip! Take me with you!  :-D

Keep away From I-95 in Port Orange. North bound may be closed until tomorrow cause of that accident.

Have a good trip!

Looking forward to seeing you guys Scott. Gonna be hard to pull Schawee from the swamp though. He said Fridays are tough for him to get away. See you soon!

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

In a holding pattern right now but we're all packed and ready to go at midnight. I'll do what I can with videos and pics!

Ya'll along the east coast might want to huddle together somewhere around Myrtle Beach. I'm afraid that puttin' Bud and Bruce together on the same spot of land might shift the earth's axis...need to counteract it :-D

Hardwood, Peggy, Ian & Bud dropped by this evening as they were strolling through on their way to Redbees in Texas. Sure wish they could have stayed longer but we did have a very nice visit. We wound up going to Cafe du monde of Metairie http://www.cafedumonde.com/ for some coffee and beignets.

I brought them over to my Dad's house for a tour of his garden/mini orchard after that and we picked some satsumas and kumquats. After that we went back to my place and took Beauregard out and then played with my scorpions and Argentine boa.

Its always great to get together with these fine folks/expert bee removers and my buddy big daddy Bud even if it was for just a few hours. Love you guys to death! See y'all at Bud4, y'all drive safe now.

We finally got home last night...whew!

Bruce lives on a beautiful hunk of land out in the sticks and has a lot of those #1,500 two point deer around him (cattle). Coyotes howl at night and the stars are big and bright. A beautiful place indeed.

Thanks again for the great chow and the fun times Bro! We'll have to make a habit out of coming to see you.

Bud, it's always a blast when you're around..we sure did enjoy your company.

JP, I wish we could've stay longer but we were on a mission after all...we'll be hooking up soon at Bud's place!
Peggy shot a bit of video while we were there. I haven't looked at it yet but I'll post some here (as long as she didn't forget the lens cap again)!
