Well..whaddya know. So, chicken, do you think it's gonna be a problem? Most of us who have been around long enough know that this year is supposed to provide more sand for your buck...but just curious about your personal opinion.

Good to see you are back, Chicken.

How are things going down your way? I hope the rebuilding is coming along. The price of sheetrock up north is out of sight. Hope you can do better where you are.

thanks for the link. It's definitely another wild card in the mix for the rollover.

Not long now. If the pollies are right, I will invite them over for a huge bean & rice casserole; spam on the side. :-)
