Unfortunately I still have to work for a living, so I'm still going to have to be a snowbird for now. It will be a great escape though when that nasty dawg starts yapping about how warm it is in El Paso

Let's see 300,000 pesos???? You bought that for $28 bucks??? Oh wait that conversion was before Obama. You bought that for $300,000 bucks???

Man, that place is nice. I'll bet being there sheds stress like butter off a hot knife.

Oh yeah, welcome back.

Yes it does Bill, and the daily dozen of Coronas and Margaritas doesn't hurt either.

Thanks Friz, but I've been shivering since I got home. To tell you the truth, I'm very surprised at the lack of gizmos coming from you
Now if that ain't an opening
