    What?? Say it ain't so! I put in for a day off on June 20th for the Cincy trip just to spend some quality time with you and now I find out you're not going! Great Caesar's Ghost! It's obviously a "vast right-wing conspiracy to keep us apart!
    Are you really not going? Give me your itinerary for the next year and I'll show up at all your destinations...­ or maybe half, or a quarter.... anyway, I'll see you one of these days
    Till then x's and o's

    Damnation, Betsy! I haven't checked my profile site in months evidently cause I missed your post until just now when I saw that Suha had posted a b'day message and saw yours! You must think me a horrible poofta.... well I am but not because I don't want to hear from you every day and twice on Sunday! (pardon double negative) I sure as Hell had better see you before June, young lady!!! I miss you too, celtic woman! How did volleyball tourneys turn out? Let me know you got this!!! set something up

    Tom and I will be on the Rocky Fork tomorrow. Join us if you want. We will have them release water from the dam so the level is up. Sami thought it would be too cold. Sunday may be too cold.

    Hello! Since you're looking at wetsuits, this is the one I bought. It's only a 2.5mm, so probably not your best bet for mid-winter unless you pile on the layers. The large fits me. It's tight in the chest, but length-wise it's about perfect (I'm 5'4). Since it's Amazon, you can return it for no cost­­

    I wear this under it.­­

    Ha! I hope to get out Wed. I've been wanting to meet up with you guys for a paddle all summer but haven't had the chance. Hopefully it'll be this week!

    Yes, indeedy. The web is the way. You would not want to go into Macy's and ask some snotty-nosed associate where the wetsuit department was. When you finally did find the rubber clothing section in their S & M department, trying on 10 or 15 wetsuits would leave you breathing heavily on the floor encased in rubber which could result in all kinds of misunderstandin­gs! Goto Wetsuitwearhous­ Best selection/price­/people. The Hyperflex line is a great value with huge number of sizes. Bon chance!!

    Alas, mon Ami, I am late in zee reply, non? However, I will gladly decide about Wednesday on Tuesday... that's a paraphrase of a famous cartoon character. Do you know who? So, I did not presume to buy you a wetsuit until I can personally verify your vital statistics BUT I did buy myself one. Might wear it Wednesday if it fits comfortable. Going up to Alum Creek beach to practice eskimo rolls on Sunday. Give my best (best what??) to youself and Susan and I'll zee you zoon avoir et allons
