When I got to Lake Geneva, it was warm, sunny, poofy clouds and some colours in the trees. The week progressed like that, good for replacing windows. The day I left, I was followed by a cold front that was frosting things up. While I was there I enlisted a fine chap who helped me with the tall stuff. A rather handy fellow to have about, wot?



Travel went pretty quickly, until I got to St.Louis. Rush hour and road construction at the same time... Timing is everything, eh?

So I guess your new nickname should be shorty from here on Ozzie?!

Funny you should ask............

I thought of several of the Brothers, you included as I went there and back. I was going to go through again in a few weeks, but things came up at home that require my immediate attention. Perhaps in December I will be able to shake some hands? I use I-55, and that takes me through Lincoln, just a bit west of Chestnut.

Don't let me slow you down. But I have met friends at Steak & Shake on I55 exit 126 at Lincoln. That's not too far away. This time of year there never seems to be much time.

Ozzie glad you made it back home safe and sound. I'm sure all of your zoo residents were excited by your return. Smile

Cripes Rande, you really are digging up the past! East Enders too! The series is still going strong though I haven't watched it for over 15 years, in fact probably when Lofty was in the Square!

The circles that I moved in used irony as a sense of humour. If someone was short they were nicknamed Lofty, if someone was tall they'd be called Shorty, and so on. You get the idea.

lol!

Carlos, what ever happened to that awesome truck stop near you?
For the first 10-12 years it was awesome...but then they opened the one in Up state NY or maybe it was still Pennsylvania.. I can't remember, but after they started growing they started sucking. No idea if it's even there now.
