“I just wanted to say hey to everyone this morning. Haven't had a chance to catch up on TT lately.”
“Tired. Had a softball game last night and we got whipped! Drowned our sorrows at the local tavern to late. Got another game tonight, same thing will probably.”
“Hi Binks! How's it going? Maple and I are headed to the Adirondacks for 3 days of canoeing and hiking. It's a beautiful day!”
Coffee is good.”

“You sure one of the cats didn't eat the hamster there strat?”
“trekkingirl-I can't make it unfortunately. I'm either going to go backpacking or I'm going to work. I'm leaning towards paddling out to an island by the house and camping overnight saturday night.”
“That's what I was thinking Wounded Knee.”

“lolz....well actually no...there is no confirmation as of yet(hamster body)....i just told my 5 yr old the hamster wanted to move away and get married....”
“WOW, good answer to the little one. I had a hermit crab when I was little. It crawled out of its cage and we never saw it again. Not even the shell. My dad just said that it didn't like me anymore, so it ran away. I cried.”
“Hey Strat! I thought you also had three pet liberals to count all your money for you...”
“my 5 yr old can count all my money for me since there's only $2.57 and a couple chuckie cheese tokens...
i'm blue collar , mang...working class....white trash...mucho el poor-o”
“Hey binkley, how ya doing ?
Things are going good down here in Huntsville. My next hiking trip is with Katibug on July 25th in the Smokies. I'm looking forward to it.
Also, sometime in November, I'm gonna hike the AT from Davenport Gap, north, to the Nolichucky River. Should be about 100 miles and take a week.
“hmmm, well, i am packed up and ready to head to colorado. I was throwing my gear into the rolling duffle earlier and thought i would just check and shake my tent out for the heck of it and discovered the poles were missing. I have torn the house and car apart and cannot find them...sigh ...o dear, i gotta buy a new tent when i get out there...durn..
did anyone who went to Lost Cove spring hike find blue tent poles for a north face canyonlands....? oh and i cannot find my sleep pad either.....
i love new gear.....:) and i have a whole day in denver to shop tomorrow..hee
om shanti om peace~~~~~~~~”
Strat..sounds like my zoo. We had two hamsters loose at one time. One met it's demise in the fan of the frig..ka chink ka chink! The other was an Eric Rudolph fugative for many moons and made a nest in the back corner of my son's closet...literly chewed a hole in the carpet down to the base flooring!!!”
“Doing good MDS.
You guys will have fun up there.
I'm trying to take a little time to hike the AT through the Smokies”
“so last night I'm trying to pack for this weekend.
phones are ringing (cell & house phone)
but the kicker was, my son dec'd to let the pets stretch there legs a bit.
so, Ive got this cute bunny hoping around the house (yes, i got to pick up the present's it left me)
and the hamster in the hamster ball rolling all over the house.
i found myself yelling at the hamster "why can't you go roll over there instead of right where i'm working"
oh, yes fun time in the tree house!”
“OMG crazygirl, that's crazy.”
“Zoo?.. let me show you zoo.. cometo work with me one day.. :).. anyways.. lets see.. how am I.. good.. busy.. but good.. luv my new job.. but it takes a lot of time, energy and willingness.. so far this morning.. secured warehouse space for a customer in KC, and will be traveling there on monday to review it, and to meet with my customer. Now working on the agenda for the weekly staff meeting... and need to talk to all my project managers to get their input.
Things ARE good tho.. but do look forward to hiking again soon.”
“Packing and getting ready for a trip! Going to the White Mtns tonight with Twinkle, Pepsi, Madriver and Sir Pete! Can't wait to leave!”
“Oh yeah and Mousespray, not sure what that name is all about. Have to find out this weekend.”
“Off for 3 weeks. Was in Lake George for July 4th. Normally this is a great fireworks show over the lake but disappointing this year. Spent a little time in the Catskills & earlier in the Finger lakes. Would love to have a home right on a finger lake. (All vineyards) I'd miss my daughter, son-in-law & grandson though on a daily basis. Just came down from the Adirondacks last night. Haven't decided what I'll do today yet. Only 1/2 week left :-(”
“Hey Binks, how's it going? I've had an extremely busy, stressful week myself. My new job has in the orders of magnitude more responsibility more than my old one. I'm LOVING it ¦ ) !
Now I'm off to have a wonderful three day weekend. Have a Happy everybody!
PS Mapleleaf: My house rabbit litter-trained extremely easily, yours probably would too. Just put a small tray of litter in it's cage at night and then put it on the floor where it can find it easily during the day. Make sure you show it where it is. That's all I had to do and I never had to worry about little presents ever again. Well, at least not until now. He's nine years old and he's starting to have little accidents occasionally. We're currently discussing the Depends for rabbits option...”
“I was just at Seneca Lake last week doing the winery tastings and seeing the Watkins Glen waterfalls. The lake was really beautiful and so many people had houses perched at the side of the the lake but high up. Very nice.”
“Hey BB. I had an eventful week...um let's see tortured a new victim at work ( I mean trained a new auditor) ...tortured my car repair guy (I wish! hes hot..he did touch my muffler though..lucky little honda!)...tortured my family, that comes natural. OTher than that no one has tortured me and it's just not fair. lol I hope your day goes better...grumble brumble”
“He touched your muffler, huh?”
