pictures cannot express ..... the speed at which we flew as we lost some of those tug of wars with the women
.... or how fast we slipped .... it was like water skying
... or how we had to try not to crush the small boys as we fell down on our faces in defeat
... or how much the women laughed at us as we slipped, fell, dangled, wallowed in our misery, and embarrassed ourselves

... or how my heart burns with revenge ... I will be running and pounding meat products with Rocky music playing for the next year .... our rope a dope strategurrry will eventually work men!

Jim made the porcupine branding iron  and an excellent job he did.
the party was great you freestaters did a great job and im glad i attended wish i was'nt so boring or i would have stayed later. I will definetly be there next year. you all deserve a big pat on the back for all the hard work done and the showers were as good  as the marriot thanx to lloyd and jerry. also jerry did an excellent job documenting  the whole party on film. Even though it rained a little it was a nice break and wet the field for the fireworks.
Also a big thanx to bob hull who allowed burning pork on his land.

                                                                                           FIRECRACKER JOE!

The naked fire dance was scary.
It was not that the camera flash did not work,
the camera just would not hold the picture.

I'm still with you all in spirit!
If folks will still be there on Friday night,  'I'll ship on up to Grafton," and stay/be there for clean-up-day on Saturday.

Yup, KB, that's me.  I don't look quite the same because half the hair and half the beard was sacraficed in an attempt to become a Republican delegate for Ron Paul ( I lost the election).

The operative word in your question is FROM Pennsylvania.  I have  found my home in Grafton.  Five acres with a south-facing sloping field.  Well, septic, electric and phone come with the 3 bedroom.double-wide.

WHOOPS.  I let PatK use my computer and I see that I posted this message as him.  I didn't intend to commit identity theft, but I don't know how to change the sender of this message.
