    Thanks for all the well wishes. However, I had a little too much time on my hands today at work. Happy April 1st Flatlanders.

    I am glad I am reading this at 0017 because it is officially April 2, which means the first few posts I read no longer qualify as an April Fools joke. That being said I was actually going to reply hoping to get a good deal on some crawfish...........

    I was just reading an article about a spaghetti farm...you might be interested in one of those too.

    Dammit, Mikey:
    I was putting you down as a vacation destination.
    I knew something was craw fishy.

    DJ, Mikey's makes a couple trips a year through Mt. Vernon via I57 on his way to Louisiana and has "threatened" to stop and say hi but he never has. He's got 2 reasons to stop now. I'm sure a tour of the MVFD could be arranged, couldn't it?

    Mikey, next time STOP, don't just wave.
