    Now if I understand the 'rules' correctly this is not once a pig, always a pig'. One has to maintain the 3 tons before first frost following every season, correct? Are we fed to hogs if we fail?_g

    You must keep up in the tonnage department.

    Never fall around hogs it is very dangerous (oh you said fail).

    Well the treasurer only collects from members and that requires that you be a member so you got things in the wrong order there all correspondence by non members is burned in the 10-CPM.

    Now I'll toss your hat into the ring upon verification of your actual stash and please no pictures of your tightie whitey dance or scars as a result of.

    I'll second Augmister's nomination if he was the one you were nominating.

    Now he has to provide some additional information to convince the hogs he is worthy perhaps by telling us about his compulsive pellet habits (and we also will not tell the Nuns about any possible incorrect habits).

    As for Eatonpcat I gave up on him last year but offered to toss his hat back in the ring pending a good stash picture (the oinkers in the Blue Van need to be able to recognize their targets).

    He posted pics. See his Avatar.

    Here.. Read post 6 (hint). http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/got-my-stash.90633/

    He received Oinks last year and should have received them.in that thread....

    So I nominate Eaton! By all accounts, he is a Big Pig! ! ;)

    Since you are conducting this evenings slopping session let us know the outcome.

    I'll be busy playing with interior storms. I want them finished by tomorrow evening and need to get the boss to help with the ones for the patio door out to our north west facing deck, too much shrink wrap for one person to handle.

    Did you ever start a thread in the DIY on these? I remember you talking about them last year (I think you even.posted a pic of one?).

    I normally cover all my windows with the plastic sealing kits (every little bit helps). So having a more permanent solution would be nice.

    Woo hoo I qualify ....4+ tons in August. I have an F350 V10 but I had 3 tons delivered this year. So no bronze star this year. If I ever build a garage I will be a big pig. Right now my shed is pack to the roof :)

    I believe you need to post some pics, Paul. The big pigs need to be able to identify which stash they are raiding. :cool:

    There slick, they will lure you into the club, you show them pictures of your stash, and bam that blue van comes in in the middle of the night and your stash is gone. Sleep with one eye open.;)
