Rich & Jan, that's no Lie !

Thought I would go down and see where Janice Joplin grew up in Port Arthur Texas and maybe catch a glimpse of that old Porsche of hers.......

Should have been on ALERT by the signs pointing to "Bridge City"

This little "detour" took me about 60 miles out of the way. Who the hell designs these foolish things anyway ?

This one even had a last minute "Chicken Out U-turn Lane" ( which I used ) Not that heavily travelled I suppose..... I swear I could almost see it blowin' in the breeze !

Jeesh......

As it turned out, the Joplin family museum was closed and from what I have read since coming home, her car isn't there now anyway, so I guess I didn't miss much. Did find one heck of a chinese buffet on my way out of town though ( and by the looks of things, a guy don't want to stop just anywhere around here )

I also checked out the Tabasco factory in LA on Avery Island.

My kind of place that Avery Isle, an island with NO bridges !

Sorry I missed you in PHX too. KT sends her best. Spent some time on McDowell Mtn. Nice place for you two for a little weekend get away. We'll catch you next time around, maybe on your way to Maine for Clams & Lobstah ? I know the back way........ no BSB ! (Big Scary Bridges)

Kenny Jay !

We knew you would like that pic, in fact I think we overheard you hoping out loud that someone would be able to get a shot like that. Ask and you shall receive !

Hey, it would be an honor to become members of your clan ! Thanx for the invite. PM us instructions.

Know up front though, we ain't dressin' up for any of your meetings, in fact, unless said meetings are around a campfire or truck fender, we just might not make it at all !

Hello to the Missus, hope all is well !

Yup you are correct that is the perfect shot!

Just go to our website Four Corners Airstream Camping Unit

pull up the app and you are good to go.

You have already been to our meeting - the balloon rally - thats about as formal as we get - now the secret handshake is another matter

I am honored to have you as a member - Thank you!

Say hey to Kate

Ken

B4WEDIE folks,
Welcome to 4CU!!! UHM, there is a small matter of a dress code...involves flamingoes and the soon-to-be-extinct peeps...not a BIG deal, but we've got you covered on the former, if you didn't get one(or two) on the balloon park...gotta order more, but warning in advance:::::::since a large, communo-capitalistic kountry is involved, there may be a lead lining- DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CONSUME OR PLACE IN SENSITIVE,UHM, CAVITIES...
If I've overstepped my membership bounds, please let me know, and I will, indeed, genuflect, or somehow try to grovel my way back into acceptible graces...really...promise...
john

I should hasten to add that Kevbo is my spiritual confidant, if not advisor(lookin for that DON>>>), and that anything that appears out of my keyboard is automatically routed through his censorboard before release...
mike

Where did BAM fade to??? I miss her astringence.

Thanks to all for your kind responses to the CD Tracy compiled...obviously, I had nothing to do with it, 'cause it got made. I'm in it, tho', so she could keep me quiet...well, sorta quiet...I DIDN"T GET THE STARRING ROLE!!! maybe next year...? m

Please, don't forget me when next year's selection for Trailer Trash Queen comes up for vote...my ballot is committed to no-strapless, and that's as far as I have been compromised. Donations in the form of certain liquids and the ever dependable cash will be accepted up to, and after, the ballots have been cast.

One of the things you will notice, Ted, is that Scrap and Kevbo talk in code - we are still trying to decide if we should adopt it as the official 4cu language.

You can never overstep the membership bounds.....thats what makes the 4cu ummm "special"

You have to be careful - its just not any ol decoder ring - its a special FCU issue - it comes with the membership and you learn the secret handshake which is after you learn the official secret FCU jig

Wow its that time again - check out the 2008 thread for the newest version of the Balloon Rally - now that we have one under out belt, we kinda know what we are doing - or maybe not, but one thing for sure - we will have another great time. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f289...lly-39480.html
