I had a fabulous time, thanks to Fritz & Heidi, Crimpergirl & Brassnuts, Stein, Kim & Pete, BrianSLC, Skully, Brokedown, et all. The giant key lime pie was amazing. Pente was precious. So cute.

The night of the 4th was a hoot. I noticed the over 50 crowd was the loudest in camp. (Promptly done at 10 mind you.) Playing with a straitjacket, wide angle SLR and hoops to classic rock. Really loud classic rock. Great "pot-luck", and not a "merican flag in site. yah-hoo.

Had not climbed there for 20 years, and sure enough, part way up both top-ropes, I vividly remembered them. Fun stuff.

Here's some evidence of how well hossjulia climbs...even out of shape and with a sore knee.

Oh that's too funny, the day after climbing "Good Times", I see a band called "GoodTimes" at the Mobil. They play again Sunday afternoon and are good.
Indeed. ;->

Man. Sorry to have missed the night of the 4th. It looks like you guys rocked the camp.
T'was a blast for me while I was, anyway. Many thanks. The City is always a good time.
The hands sized Metolius that someone ditched on Parking Lot Rock was a nice bonus, too.(booty) Rock on, ya'll.

Crimpergirl! Glad you all survived!

I just got an email from Kim. She noted that it rained all day on July 5th-----the day we bailed!

I am fairly good at predicting Idaho weather.

Rained hard yesterday afternoon too. Made for some forced rest and happy hours. And got Michelle to let her poor eyeball heal. I will post up a photo of her eye when I get home. It was awful! Thanks again Fritz and D. W e had such a great time!

Crimpie or Brass;

Serious Request;

If you ever feel like expounding on "traveling with a cat", I'm all ears. My wife and I face this dilemma a lot, I mean get the neighbors to feed the little dears or one of us stays at home.

Sooo, cats allowed but no dogs, huh?
Is that just because Pente was family of the guests of honor?
Looks fun there at the COR, never been.

Pente was one of the Guests of Honor, and requested no dogs at her party.

I was jest honoring her wishes.

I just gotta ask:

What's with the cat?

I'm much more frightened by the straight jacket photos than wondering about the cat.....

Cat is beautiful and has a fur coat. Does not need clothes!
