    Default tonyb....rumours.......

    I heard through the grapevine he hit the PowerBall!
    BIGTIME!

    Could that possibly explain his absence?

    I guess I should have asked for a LOT more for the power cable!!

    If he did hit the powerball, I am extremely happy for him! He is an outstanding gentleman!

    Tony shows up, buys all current members of the Club a set of LSiM707s before disappearing to his own private island.

    Yup...sounds plausible to me.

    If the rumors are true, *hi5*! Otherwise, *hi5* anyway.

    You guys are killing me.

    I went to update my email info, and suddenly was locked out of posting anything. Maybe I triggered something in the software, I dunno. I could read all you Bozo's, but couldn't respond. Whoever finally took care of this, thank you.

    Paul,
    If those bad boys cost as much as Jimmy Choo shoes brother, keep 'em. Send me the "payless shoes" version.

    So far, you guys have me in the witness protection program and winning the lottery. Wouldn't mind either at this point to tell the truth. I know if the lottery gods smiled on me, I would be showering a few of you Bozo's with some heavenly gifts for sure. Thanks for the concern anyway, and to Polk for straightening it out.

    Amen to that, about had it with Illinois for obvious reasons. Texas ?? I dunno, have an x wife that lives there and I don't think that state is big enough for the both of us. I'd have to anchor in a normal state somewhere, but sure wouldn't mind a beach house in Carmel.....or maybe Portofino in Italy. One can sure dream eh.

    As far as Pepster being upset....well, if you saw the IC'S he's making me which I haven't paid for yet, you'd understand. Besides, we've been kissin' cousins since Rick88 dropped out from posting those hotties in the other thread.

    Hmmm! I have relatives in Illinois who LOVE it and a son who considers it a TOP choice for relocation. I guess it really depends on what you consider acceptable or desirable. Those Lefties are pretty dangerous people you know. lol


    Texas? Not on the list I'm afraid, sorry boys! Though I'd bet that it's "beautiful" country, as is MOST of the U.S., for that matter!
