  8. what do you mean?...oh you mean how to post pics on here?

    It's 34* right now and the snow has missed us so far, they were talkin 3 or 4 inchs of slop snow, don't need it, don't wan't it! Glad it's been warmer though, now when it dries up some, can get out and get the place cleaned up from winter! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Net: know what you mean, planned on workin out on the deck today, wanted to put a new table on the horizontal cooker, put down some patio block on the deck cook station and maybe smoke a fatty. But it is raining (not complainin, least its not snow!) so, might just get the fatty done and work in the office today. Guess there's next weekend for the fun projects!
