I was just reading about the toilet paper shortage in Venezuela.

Maybe I better pick up a couple rolls when I go out later this morning!

But, really dude, if you're gonna pee in someone's yard, shouldn't you look to see if someone is watching?
if it is a really pressing issue, dude may have little else on his mind until...taxy, you smoke?

just didn't fit in with my image of our taxy....

now i'm curious to know--how many of our dcers are currently smokers?

I too am a smoker. Have no desire to quit. I have been smoking since I was ten. I am now 74. Don't you think it is a little late for me to quit?

PF, on one of our trips cross country by car, we stopped in Missoula. It was at a diner. We had breakfast and was listening to the natives talking about their crop, land problems, cattle, etc. When we left I looked to my left. The land was flat but off in the distance were the mountains. They still had some snow on top. They looked so beautiful Like God had them in his hand and just put them down where the world could admire them. I still have the picture in my head.

You would never make it with Pioneer Camping. You use leaves.

And during the depression, there was always last years Sears and Roebuck catalog.

You sure it was Missoula, Addie? Sounds more like Eastern Montana. Missoula sits in a bowl with all sides formed by a different mountain range: Bitterroot, Mission and Sapphire, 5 rivers flow into the valley.

I've never had even one cigarette. I think that's because I grew up with two parents who were chain smokers. I never fathomed why anyone would allow themselves to constantly smell of smoke, mess up furniture, clothes, vehicles, etc. Why? They were never without a smoke. I never understood it and could never justify the expense, especially now. I see the advertised prices at the gas stations and quick marts and I'm shocked.

It just never interested me.
