    He ain't got no rights only responsibilities to the Oink-hood. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Welcome to the club, dues are payable to imacman for laundering (wouldn't want dirty money), who will forward them to Eric who handles the stocking of the administrative supplies refrigerator I mean closet.

    Thanks to all who need thanking! To early to celebrate, seems my employer frowns on bringing Spotted Cows to work. Sure would help keep moral up.;)

    We have had applications that didn't meet the requirements, they were shy poundage.

    1. I've got the tonnage required. But the 2 tons of softwood and 13 bags of MWP blend were delivered because: A. The only place to buy the softwood was through SIB and I wasn't going to say no to free delivery, and B. The last ton of blend I bought last year was also through SIB because it was the cheapest I could buy pellets at the time. ALL the pellets were hand carried by me and restacked in the basement.

    2. I've got 2 stoves.

    3.I've got a '99 Dodge Dakota rust bucket for a pellet hauler. (I almost lost some pellets on the Interstate because my tailgate started to fall off because one of the pins it sits on rusted off.)

    4. I drink semi frozen beer out of cans (Help me out here Smoke)

    The downside.

    I'm technilogically challenged. I still can't find the slot on the computer where you put the pictures in so everyone else can see them. I thought I found it when a little tray came out, but when I tried to put the picture in, it only went halfway and got all chewed up. And I'm almost out of film.

    after reading the requirements, I'm not sure I would qualify anyway. If we don't get a frost before October 1, I will have 3 - 4 ton on hand by that time. Unfortunately, 2 ton will have been delivered by Sibs. (although I will have had to carry it into the house)..

    I do have a pellet stove.

    But I don't have a gas guzzler. I have a RAV4 that i've been picking up 15 bags at a time in. BUt it is a 2001 with 133,000 miles on it.

    Besides the satisfaction I will have for carrying it all in and having it on hand, should I even apply when the time comes? I can take rejection, but be gentle. ;lol

I'm pretty sure you have caught the incurable swine flu and are abscessed about pellets, Just like the rest of us.....................! ;) :cool:

    If I remember rightly you needed over 3 tons before first frost, is that still true?

    Thank you for the votes.

    The torpedo juice is locked away to keep my sons out of it!
    (I actually came across a 5 gallon pail of it when I was in. Needless to say, that never made it into a torpedeo.)

    I would like to nominate my wife into the pellet pig club.
    I had ordered 4 tons last week having full intentions of being there to pick it up and move it all into the shed.
    As it turns out, I had to leave town for family matters and left the wife at home alone.
    Well, earlier this week, the pellets arrived in the drive way. That night, she moved two tons into the garage, and the next night, the last two tons.
    Although, it is not where I want it, it will do for now, they are out of the weather, and will not get moist. So, I still have a chore to do when I do get home.
