I was just about to look it up Chris, but being you're here, do you remember the date?
Chris won last year.

Maybe for an added twist this yr you could put a tractor man on it made of straw, like a scarecrow.
:thumbs: :rocker2: :dancingbanana:

Or maybe a big stuffed black bear. ??? :wave:

Of course there is. :smilewink:

Well, you just renewed your "Site Supporter" contribution, so we kinda expect to see you on the list
once we get going with this. :thumbs:

The ice is still a bit sketchy, and I just don't feel like going for a cold swim, so we're
going to have to wait a bit more, before I drag victim out there.

That was one of the first things I did when I logged back on after being absent for a month. George makes it pretty darn easy to help if you have a paypal account

Select your amount and away you go.

I wouldnt be out on our ice yet either, it looks pretty sketchy too. In fact I mentioned "that I had not checked to see how thick the ice was out by the dock yet" to Kathy this morning. "Go ahead", "I'm sure not going to try", she says. She went in up to her knee a year or two ago "testing" the ice at the dock. :D :D , good thing I was there to grab her before she went any further.

The ponds are starting to ice over here in the Adirondacks. I wouldn't park a GT on them just yet. I'll play this year.
