    I leave on Thursday in order to visit my family in Kansas on the way......so counting today.... 4 days...and I have a Texas Hold 'Em tournament at the casino this afternoon at 1400 hrs..... 2 dental appointments (Tue and Wed) LOL

    BUT............I CAN'T WAIT ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Looking forward to the seminars and meeting a lot of good people from taxinet.

    Buying some supplies from the vendors while I'm there.

    And playing Texas Hold 'Em while I'm there. :)


    I think I'm on target to make the final adjustments on my mounts.

    I'm just about ready, finally! Two of my pieces -- DONE. The one other piece is finished except for the base, which we put the final touches on today. My husband built me crates for my mounts today. He said if he heard me say the word "CRATE" again, he was going to go crazy (Lol.. I've been bugging him for the past two weeks about it because I said I just wouldn't feel "finished" until my mounts were inside their crates and ready to go)

    I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE EVERYONE!!! I'll be there Tuesday afternoon ... don't be afraid to say hi! ;D

    I think I'll try and mount my piece in the morning. Was going to do it today but just gotr to busy & now i'm too lazy to go into town this late.

    Can't wait, but I am nervous....I've never been in vehicle with Miranda as long as we will be together this time. She wants to leave at 2 P.M. on Friday & I want to leave at 9 P.M. so she'll hush & go to sleep. See, we already are disagreeing! :) LMAO!

    you leave at 9 pm and you wont be here in time to be mounting an elk on saturday, you wont get here until 11 am or so. If you leave at 2pm you will at least get here between midnight and daylight LMAO , just get your butt up here you dork LOL.

    I am done with mounts, problem with that is , is that i am not satisfied with them LOL and i am picking them apart. Since this is a first world show, i am freaked out about it, just like i was before i ever went to a state show. But i guess i am ready to be there and have some fun. See ya all there, remember come by the HOAL booth, i will have some awsome card drawing raffles for fund raisers for HOAL, most likely a hunt at the ranch Patrick and Charles will be at, Some stuff from Muzzy products, and an antler carving, as well as the blanket special i have always had, but will be doing it different this time, for every fifty donations of a dollar, i will draw a name for a free blanket. You will have to come by the booth to see the blankets, they are awsome, but i dont have a photo of one to post right now. they are in the trailer packed and ready to go, see you there.

    Just do what Miranda tells you. ;) Get that deer done, no more excuses. You should do those pigeons you talked about also. ;D ;D

    I am excited, and I can't wait to get there. I will be flying in Tuesday around 6:30. Hey Mike, let me know if you can still pick me up.
    I'll buy supper for you and Miranda. ;)

    Lets not forget about getting together at the hotel bar at 10:00 for the Taxi Net people. (and whoever else) We will all have to drink a beer for Tom Voyer though or he'll feel left out. ;D I'm looking forward to meeting you all.

    Brian, "I" might be able to pick you up at the airport, but if Mike is gonna do it, its gonna be IN MY TRUCK :D because they are riding up with me LOL there are gonna be a ton of people at the airport when you are, so once i get there and get my trailer unloaded, the best bet would be to get 2 or 3 at the same time, and decided whether i need to dolly the trailer down or bring it to get stuff to the convention for people.
  9. Nope, not satisfied with piece, and customer may want it before the show, so i may bring nothing! LOl BUT, I will be there wqednesday morning at 8;30. And Brian, yes please have a beer on me. I also have a gorgeous 5 foot rhinocerous viper if you want it for 300.00, can bring it along!!!!!!!

    I'm so ready to get away for a few days. I have some more work to be done to my piece, but it shouldn't take too much longer. It gets confusing...I'm ready, I'm not ready, I'm ready...

    I had to take the weekend off to get other things ready, a working weekend away. If 8 miles away is considered being away. :-\ But I got to melt stuff, so it was a great weekend for me ;D :D But it's back to taxidermy for me in the morning.

    jasonb I think I'll keep her

    I was going to go to the shop again today to work on the piece again but wife is down so I went grocery shopping instead, But I will be back at it again to do a little epoxy work and help the boss work on bases. Still can't believe we will be loading the trailer next weekend.

    Tom, if that were the case with me, then I would never take a piece. :)

    My bases are still not in! ARGH! :mad: I still have to do some detail work and painting. Looks like only 2 mounts will make it instead of three! Those 2 can only make it if the bases ever show up! :mad: Dan
