    Thumbs up

    Mrs. Rain Man and I will be there!

    Thanks, MM, for putting this one together! Should we just pass the torch each time, and let someone new do the honors of arranging each dinner? Or, do folks prefer a benevolent dictator? Or, a malevolent dictator?!!!

    I kinda' like the idea of 'passing the torch.' A good way to keep people involved and not burden any one person. (A fairly light burden, tho') We can take an informal poll at dinner--or here--whatever works...

    And, it will be good to involve new folks every chance we get. Myself, this will be my last chance to be a part of you good folks til October. Did I mention I am on my way reside in HOT SPRINGS for Hiker Season (Mar, Apr, May)? Woo Hoo!!! As they say here in the south--Come go with me!!

    I have wanted to sign up for this wonderful dinner; however, the final blow to that wish seems to be on its way across the USA. I'm five driving hours from Brentwood. That was a total of ten hours, but it sounded worth it. It would even provide an excuse for visiting the home of an old friend Saturday night. Now though weather.com is talking dirty about big thunderstorms and bad highway conditions, especially along I-40 from Nashville. It is good for MM to have set it up so nicely. I know that you are going to have a wonderful time.--Kautious Kinnickinic
