    My memory is hazy but I seem to remember shorts and T shirt in the garden some years ago?

    Come visit The Lone Star State my friends.

    I'll supply the BBQ, (and we do have some form of Guinness to wash it down) :thumb:

    Looks like we have a "cool front" coming on the 22nd, so you better hurry!

    Oh, and Stu please bring along the Frampton Les Paul if you may be so kind. I would love to hear it cranked through the Friedman in all it's glory. :cool:

    That would be an amazing trip!!! That weather might be too much for me though! I’d need a lot of Guinness in the evenings. Seriously, I have a lot of stuff to sort out in the next few months...so be careful what you wish for once it’s all sorted!
    There are quite a few people I’d LOVE to visit. It may take some time! :D

    Only a Slinky sounds like it does.
    Only Play Dough smells like it does.
    Only Silly Putty smells like it does.

    Nothing else does.

    Do note that the humidity is down in the 10-20% range.
    That really does make the high temps more tolerable. The danger is that you don't realize how much fluid you are losing through sweat, thus the need to double-fist your Guinness ;)

    The humidity is why, when I retire and leave California, I'm not going east of central Texas/Hill Country.
