You know you gotta wonder?

It isn't necessarily "seeking blandness". Your DH is probably a supertaster (as I am) who can distinguish very subtle flavours which "normal tasters" can't even tell are there. Supertasters can enjoy what seems bland to others, but is full of flavour to us -- even stuff like plain soda crackers. OTOH it also means that strong and hot flavours are too much or even unbearable.

Hey, here's a wild idear...
how many of the porch members have RVs?
How about we attempt to find a mutually acceptable time when we can all meet at a more or less centrally located place?
Possible sites;
Dead Man's basin (near Ryegate); Ackley Lake State park (near Hobson); any such place sort of in the center of the State, State Parks the best bet for nightly fees, USFS campgrounds next, I assume all of us are not qualified to use the Famcamp at MAFB; KOA or other such RV parks last resort due to cost.
Whatcha think?

Other online groups have had annual picnics, and by all reports a good time was had, with much blackmail material being collected

BLM land... it's FREE. There's all kinds of other free places to camp too. Nothing better than boon docking ... with or without an RV ! Got to be by some water though. And if in the middle of the State... might as well make it some with Walleye in it .

It was brought up a few months ago about a river float somewhere... I'm sure that one will pop back up here soon.

Yes I have suspected as much for years, we do call a truce and have existed for over 26 years. Interesting kid 2 has the same preference. Too bad they do not know what they are missing.

Good Saturday neighbors, grilling dinner in the east here My many years of west coast drizzle seem like a well worth price to pay for just a week of this sun. Lots of little calves in the fields, I even saw two very young foals on the hi-line while traveling yesterday. Just the slightest hint of green covering the wheat fields, all is well.

How is it going in your neck of the woods? Lots of them big ole JDs on the road with their huge plows.

Yes, hope all the Mothers out there had a day of rest and know they are loved and appreciated.



Coffee sure tastes good this morning and a touch of that hazlenut creamer makes it even better.
