Rum would probably be better than Vodka. One of those real dark ones.

Well Jake, it was either the Moxie or beer. Of course I would never doubt your failing memory.... Remember the explanation of how wood grows? Yes, God made the wood to grow as a tree and it grows vertically; just as it should be split. Well, maybe you did have one too many while you were there....
My wife also told me to tell you the cake and other goodies from Maine were excellent but she was amazed that I had not taught you the correct way to split wood before the party.
Well in fairness I did have two cups of Woodchuck cider and despite my size I am a light-weight when it comes to alcohol. . . .
My momma taught me "manners" "say please and thank you" but this time I completely forgot what I learned. The basket was awesome. I thought my wife was glad to see me when I returned home but it was that whoopie pie she spied as I was approaching the porch. She snatched that before she said Hi! I haven't popped the Moxie yet but I got into the Maine Blueberry Jam. WOW! Is that stuff good. I don't care for coconut but my wife is a coconut addict so she also grabbed the candy later in the evening. Didn't tell her the ingredients 'till she finished it. She loved it! Just want you to know that I do appreciate it in spite of my silence. Actually, if my wife was a registered participant in Hearth, she's the one that should be expressing her appreciation.
"A" pair? Like one pair? Skiing is kinda like chainsaws, can't have just one.
Working on that avatar thing. I just figured out ten minutes ago how to change the resolution on my camera. Soon, soon.
I used to have several pairs of skis. Some for racing, some for teaching, some for cruising around, some for what I thought were stunts (I'm old, so a stunt from my day is nothing compared to the insane kids from today).
Now that I'm older I have two pair and one of those pairs are those super short skis, which are a blast when you are skiing with little kids. The other pair can best be described as a nice pair of cruisers. They've got a nice shape and I keep them with a nice edge, so they can handle my Midwest ice pack or a couple feet of the fluffy mountain stuff. They aren't as long as my old straight racing skis and they weigh a lot less. They are nicer than the skis I used to have students skid all over, and they have softer bindings with softer settings than what I had when my knees were good. It's been a very long time since I had any atomic skis, but my boots are.

Free and easy.
LOL, naw, the whole thread is a bunch of nonsense. Still seem to be on track!
Sorry GAMMA, Thats the one I was supposed to send you. Now I don't have to.
I think we both talked about it.
Pen, stop sugar coating things, what exactly are you saying?
Danno, no disrespect, is there skiing in Illinois?
You bet, and in Iowa and Wisconsin and Minnesota... I've never been out east, but if your skiing is anything like in the Rockies, then Midwest skiing is a whole new game! We have some good snow at times, but the runs are short and we deal with hard pack and ice quite a bit.
Well then, you can ski anywhere, I deal with the same crap. Rockies are awesome, western Canada as well, Europe is nuts! Heading to Steamboat in Feb.
LMAO Pen that is awesome! Did you create that sign if so pure genius!
Shouldn't you be heading from the original post, not towards it?
Completely stolen from the interweb, but I like it.
Pen.....your sig.....it used to have some intellectual saying.....now....WTF?
I think I was a bad influence on you.... ;-P

Lol, thats a nice one there. Its damn funny. Where did you find this image.
It was a trunk full of beer.
Yep, you were. I apologize for forgetting to thank you for that
Jags, I forgot to mention that the bag you see on the table belongs to my wife and is one I made many years ago. Danged thing weighs in pretty heavy too as she has to load it big time but I know not why.
Well, if its anything like my other half, its because you never know when you might need an anvil or a weed whacker.
Sounds about right Jags.
