U.P. = Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and unless I read wrong it looked like Bucky was gonna pay Canada in Karma points to invade him!

I won't divulge the amount of Karma points I have. But I have a fair number of mates in Ontario. So I bet with my karma points, and a couple of loaves of my famous home-made bread, and maybe a pancake breakfast or two, I can persuade some of my fishin' buddies, and huntin' buddies, and just plain buddies to send a "few" pair of some good, ripe, used huntin' cabin socks, in a nicely wrapped box of course. In Canada, I got people.

Oh, wait. This is BT were talking about here. Old-ripe socks is what he stuffs his pillow with. I'm just gonna have to think of something different. Not to worry though. I pretty well known in SSM, Ontario and SSM Michigan. Myu boys and their wives will protect me from any east-coast shenanigans.

I'm sorry, but I still have this pic in my head of a very kind, genorous man standing in his front yard enjoying the view from the outside in.
All of a sudden this balloon FLIES out of nowhere, smacking him straight on the head, drenching the poor man in smelly gin and glitter.
His wife arrives in the driveway a short time later asking where he'd been... and not happy about where it APPEARS he's been.....
All the while Homer Simpson is in NJ with a deep, sinister laugh, watching the whole thing on his spyvision in his basement....
Ok picture complete.
:)

My wife has known me for thirty years now, and knows that I hate alcohol and am absolutely not interested in doing anything that would involve gin and glitter. But she would laugh at the picture, knowing that someone had got me somehow. And she would tease me mercilessly about it.

BT would be hiding in his basement, for fear of the water balloon deluge coming his way. He would be looking for an umbrella sturdy enough to weather the storm, knowing that such an umbrella didn't exist. And then, he would start figuring out how to appease my desire for revenge. I'm thinking some good ribeyes and a day of fishing somewhere where the fish are huge and plentiful, and hungry, with BT paying for it from his vast wealth.

Hey, this is all fantasy so he's got vast amounts of wealth and a private pontoon plane that can fly us up into some forgotten lake in Canada.

And BT is seriously hoping that I don't get in touch with his wife, to give her pointers.

But it's all good, Bucky. I forgive you for your impetuously boyish behavior. Let's go to the hottub and fire up the grill. We'll have a cooking throwdown and invite Mudbug and freinds to be the judges. I'm thinking crown rib..., pork crown rib. How's that sound to you?

Oh, and did I tell you how wonderfully devilish your wife sounds? She absolutely bust a gut at some of the ideas I gave her. Interesting woman. And one more thing BT, I won't put rocks in your Holloween bag this year.
