Clancy, I did notice in your county that it's 80-100% Coke, living so close, I think it's 100%. "no, Pepsi, we have Coke, Diet Coke, Barq's, Diet Barq's, Bud Light, Miller Lite, now what do you want, Hun."

I don't see myself asking for a pop or soda at the Broke Spoke in Kiln, MS.

I don't ask for much at the "Spoke" - I ususlly take what they hand me and walk away, it's safer that way. hancock County it mostly Coke drinkers - I find very few ask for Pepsi around here.

As long as I can remember I've called it "Coke", even when I lived in Bermuda.

O&S What day you heading down to Topsail? I think we are on for Wednesday.

We have reservations Thursday-Sunday. I have to work Wednesday, that's when we're starting to close out our year at work & the auditors will be here(fun, fun).
Thursday afternoon is the earliest we can leave.

I guess I am older than I thought!

My last birthday, I received a musical card with something to the effect that old musicians don't fade away, they just rock on. I opened it and it played Sweet Home Alabama. Some of the Rally attendees may not have been born when that was a hit!
Isn't it amazing how time sneaks up on you! I always tell people that we started really early in West Virginia. I am really looking forward to getting together and making some noise. Did we ever decide when and where? We have all talked about nothing else since this rally came up. Lewis is busy polishing Betty every week end, Bless his heart. He wants her to be all shiny and pretty when she gets to meet all her cousins.

We always called everything a coke growing up which really became a problem when my brother started working for Pepsi. Then I moved north for awhile and fell into saying pop so I wouldn't have to explain myself everytime I asked for a coke but really wanted something else.

1 month away....

Essentially, we're 1 month away from this rally. I am happy to report our TV is back on the road following a months-long adventure in an intake and carburetor upgrade. Baring another ill-timed mechanical adventure, we should make the rally just fine.

What else does everyone have to accomplish before this rally?

...What else does everyone have to accomplish...

Christmas! Once past the 25th, it's a downhill skid to the Can Opener Oh, you meant for the Airstream? I learned last year that it's useless to polish Gypsy and then get out on a 1000 mile winter run with her, so I'll just pat her winter's dusty/muddy/slushy (???) coat and say, "Giddyup, girl, we're heading south!" She's winterized, so somewhere along the way and then back up north again, we'll have to deal with that. Otherwise, as long as we have lots of wine and goodies for the Potluck and raffle, we're good to go. ~G

Hummmmm, put up 2 Christmas trees today (one regular and one Disney decorated tree), pulled down all the yard "stuff" from the attic to put out, trimmed the hedges, all that today.

I have to return to the Persian Gulf for a week before Christmas, and some training if Florida - my DW will go to Florida and enjoy 2 nights in a hotel.

Time cannot pass soon enough for Topsail, I always enjoy the company, and seeing all the Airstreams.

34 days and counting.

Usually, we do the decorating Thanksgiving weekend but went to my Mom's for the holiday so this was our decorating weekend. We, too, put up multiple trees. Our main tree is 9' and, you guessed it, is Disney themed with the large Mickey Icon ornaments and larger Disney ornaments. We have a 7-1/2' Disney tree with small Mickey Icon ornaments and other small Disney ornaments. Usually we have a third three with Hallmark ornaments that we collect each year, but there was an electrical problem with it so we will either forgo a third tree this year or try and find one that matches the smaller Disney tree.

The exterior didn't get started yet and the trees didn't get finished, but our Santa Claus collection (one for each year we've been married--now up to 20 Christmases) have been put out. Fourteen bins of decorations plus what we bought this year! It's a job decorating our house for Christmas.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Cool Topsail Update

We just returned from Topsail a few hours ago, after spending two peaceful nights there. I am happy to report that the campground is in wonderful condition, although there is a fresh batch of mosquitos to contend with. I guess the 6" of rain we had recently must have hatched a lot of dormant eggs. So, unless we have a freeze before January, it might be a good idea to prepare for them....we're packing the fogger next trip.

For the beach enthusiasts, it's a .7 mile paved path to the gorgeous white sand, but you have the option of a "free" shuttle that starts at 9:00 AM and runs every two hours.....beats lugging a lot of gear, if you're inclined to take along beach chairs, etc. (the path is also great for bikes)

Please correct me if I am wrong, but from what I have been able to gleen from the previous posts, I understand the rally shedule to be: Friday is arrival/grip and grin (with a possible cocktail or two); Saturday is an "open house" day for folks to view each other's rigs, followed by the potluck dinner; and Sunday is potluck breakfast/departure day. We're arriving late Thursday evening, after the long and arduous 20 mile drive.

What do we have to do before the rally, e.g. Christmas.......not any more than this ole grinch is forced to do!
