Safe travels Gordon and group. We just stopped for some good BBQ in springfield I'll and are now headed to missouri. Breeder has called half a dozen times but we are not sure where he is. We hung out with datinman for a while at the restaurant too. things were going well at lunch until louverdude sprayed a pepsi on the people next to us so we made a speedy exit. next stop... gas for wingnutz
