Sorry to hear that Jan is so down in the dumps right now. She is such a 
wonderful person. Now, for you, Denis. Glad you made it out of Texas safe and 
sound. If you ever get bored with your worker bee, you can send him to Houston 
to clean and rebuild my garage. I will even let you pay for it if it would make 
you feel better. I only won 2 trophys the whole weekend at temple. Top 5 
watercooled in a vanagon and Best camp site. I guess bribing the judges with 
the ribs you bought helps. Thanks.

family the real important question arises: WHAT ABOUT ME?! 
I know some of you think I have it easy, but you would be wrong! I forgot the 
antenna to my Sirius Satellite Radio so I had to listen to ordinary radio for 
my whole trip! Well, until I saw a new slimmed down receiver at Walmart 
(probably made by cold and naked 7 year olds in a Korean prison, but hey, the 
price was right). Then my MP3 player started acting up and I had to yell at the 
girl at Circuit City until they gave me a new one.
I won 3 trophies at Paul's shows. I would have won 4 but they gave my second 
"longest distance" one to a guy from Tulsa. Some loophole that he actually 
drove his bus. If I wanted to be picky I could have asked for "longest 
trailered". At least I won more than Everette. By the way, he finally gave me 
the catologue number for the weatherstrip rubber, but I wrote it on the back of 
my ballot and then I dropped it in the ballot box...He gave the number 
to...Ronnie?... I need it, again.
The VOSA show was in a terrific site. Paul needs Allan to teach him to drive.
I ate seared fois gras with a raspberry BBQ sauce and chicken fried oysters, a 
delicious roasted chile relleno, (not fried) at Mi Tierra's, all kinds of stuff 
from Central Market...
Speaking of Mi Tierra's, when we had dinner there, Steve's third world friends 
won both the prizes. I think they were totally mystified. Do Americans often 
win inexpensive clothing at dinner?
I found that a person can easily fit two full sized grandfather clocks, a heavy 
wooden dining room table with the leafs removed and five big boxes full of 
glassware in a splitty bus. Try that in a Dodge Caravan. I loaded it and five 
more plastic storage bins, an antique ice box and a sewing machine onto the 
trailer. For the first time the big Toyota knew that it had a load.
Jan had earlier asked if we could have sheetrock or something put on the walls 
downstairs, in the theater/my room. I came home to find that Travis, my 
homebuilder worker bee, had taken my instructions to "panel in the walls" to 
mean "strip out the entire room completely, put everything I own out onto the 
driveway under a tarp, and install all new wall studs, canister lights in the 
ceiling, build in surroundsound speakers with central junction boxes for all 
electronic connections including telephone and network, re-rout the heat/AC 
ducting and put down an epoxy floor" I nixed the floor idea. I have to feel 
like I am in charge.
But since he had to rip out all the wiring, I have NO TV! I had to watch 60 
minutes on Jan's little 15''. It made my eyes hurt.
And the refrigerator in the kitchen is DEAD. Muerto. Has been since I left. 
Under warrantee, I get a new one, but not until tomorrow.
Do you know why I can't have one today? 'Cuz nobody loves me, that's why
