Post your GOOD NEWS here!

Thu Oct 13, 2005 7:42 am

I thought a "good news" section here could be a welcomed change.
I´ll start by saying that I have a vacation coming up just around the corner :D

Thu Oct 13, 2005 7:55 am

Me too.

Me and the little lady are going to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for a few days at the end of this month. We have rented a cabin in "them there hills."
Here's the hideout that I will be temporarily unavailable for a few days.

My wife will never find me there.
