Temps look good. I already told Lesa to pack a sweat shirt for the evenings (she freezes). And rain chances dont look bad. I am so ready!

Bummer. Looks like I need to bring clothes and shoes. I'd hoped not to need any of that foolish stuff.

Robert
Lmao. Hope you were planning on bringing clothes regardless of weather! I'll be in shorts Saturday. Nights are still cool here though so will have to change into jeans in the evenings

You know there is a saying that “Life is what happens when we are busy making plans”. I came home from work to find Lesa laying in the floor. She had hurt her ankle and couldn’t get up. Got her to the bed. We debated going to ER. Decided to wait til the this morning (you know ER’s are crazy especially on a Saturday night. ) Went to Minor med this morning (hoping just sprained). Got x-rays. She has a ankle fracture. So now we are at the ER waiting to be seen. Probably will need surgery. So....looks like we are going be a no show for the weekend. We are both heart broken as we were really looking forward to it. I hope you guys have a great time and post multiple pics! .

Jim, that truly is bad news, and Life did happen like John Lennon wrote. I'm so sorry for you and the others that will miss you and Lesa's company. Hoping she recovers quickly and I know she'll get the best of care with you in the Medical Profession. Glad it wasn't worse. Up North where I'm originally from we say "Stuff happens",
Only we don't say "Stuff":emoji_wink:. Keep us posted on her condition.

Boy howdy that should be one great time! I'm getting measured for a little shoulder work right about then, just a little to far to make it there in the Lance this year, maybe next year. I'll be there is spirit, take lots of pics! RAY
...I am just getting completely over Reverse Shoulder Surgery.

Jim that sucks and I'm sure Lesa didn't like it much either. Hope if she has to have surgery it goes well and she recovers quickly
