  1. That was a lodging fee/ bartering deal. Maybe some day I can crash at your house. The next morning, a nice surprise will be laying under your pin oak.

    I would but I'm not taking anything I will be there sat only, I thought about stopping in OH but it's not open to the public untill the weekend, and I will be out there working through the week, coming back home and hitting the IL show sat. Just going to catch a couple of seminars and see who wins the award I sponsored at the banquet.

    Heath Thanks for the input on the show. Everyone has worked hard over the years to give our members what they deserve in a state organization! Our membership continues to grow and everyones work just gets better and better!

    With all of the midwestern states haveing great shows it is to bad we do not have a midwestern regional show! I did send an email to UTA with a few ideas. We will see what happens.

    Me, to line up the ear canal. Then I take them out.
    Last year I had a 93 on my sheet that was crossed out and replaced with an 89 because I left the F*#$ing thing in. :-\

    I started on mine tonight. It's of two L/S fighting bull elephants. I was inspired by Ray Hatfield!! LOL I hope their dry by Friday! I hope the comp room is large enough. I used 10 32p nails in the ears, thanks for reminding me.

    Elephants are mounted. Was a late night, but mission accomplished. Now if I can just find my WAGNER spray gun I'll be in business.
