    Yep, think of the tune of the Peter Paul and Mary song..........actually it was a was written by a very young John Denver, who was then a member of the Chad Mitchell Trio before beginning his solo career in the 1970s. Denver wrote this in 1967 during a layover at Washington airport, "Not so much from feeling that way for someone, but from the longing of having someone to love"..............BUT I digress.:dissapointed:

    I am leaving tomorrow for Seattle and I probably will not be on the board for the next ten days.
    I will miss you guys. And maybe I will be able to pop in, but probably not.

    Wish me luck! And know that I am sending good thoughts and well wishes your way.
    Gotta go pack. I love how I procrastinate. NOT!

    This is difficult children first time on his own. Lord help us if he does not take care of our 4 little beasts - or my plants. :biting:

    Hope the sun comes out for you while you're there!

    And WOW, what a wellspring of music history you are...:surprise:

    OK now I just read you posts and I wish you a healing trip... I know it will be painful. I wish I had known you were coming, I would have made my getaway to go see you... I don't even know if I could get over the pass right now!
    I am so mad... I would have rather seen you than Sasquatch!!! My heart and thoughts will be with you.

    T...snow? Seriously? It's June. Did you guys in Idaho not get the memo?

    Yeah, a blizzard just blew through Mt. Ranier... there's a group of climbers stuck up there today and one died. They're hoping to get a break in the weather to pull them off the mountain.

    Blizzard and June should only go together if you're at Dairy Queen.
