I was daydreaming just now as I was in the basement planning my new toilet supply line, how wonderful it would be if one day, perhaps a long time from now, Terry hosted a forum meet at his house in Washington State, perhaps with a barbeque.

We could come from all over the country and meet for the very first time!

I could fly in from DC, Florida Orange could make the short drive from Florida, Scuba Dave could take his private jet and we could all laugh over a beer. Perhaps nhmaster and Redwood could treat us to a seminar or two.

I wonder if it will ever happen? And would we all come home alive?

If I'm driving a stang I'll take the trip. I don't think the F150 would make it.
Doubt it would happen though.

My mom just got back from Seatlle, she vacations out there at least once a year.

I would love to go to seattle,
but I would have to drag along my wife and kids with me, so it probably wont happen...



if it were to happen, it would have to be a

"plumbing seminar" hosted by Terry Love where all the great
plumbing minds of the 21st century meet for a
round table discussion....on urgent topics like....FVIR water heater repairs
Toto toilets vs Gerber......new drain cleaning equipment......
things like that thar " high level " kind of stuff.......

..

that way the trip would be tax deductable...
as a business expence.. then I could take a drive down to
San Franscisco on the 101... very beautiful trip.


you dont mind me stiffing the government
do you Ian???:D

Not at all Mark, since this would be for the common good. But get a wife/babysitter!

I hope Terry would be flipping the burgers.

Am I included in those "greatest plumbing minds of the 21st century"?

I'd like a separate session on "Dealing with serious code violations by adjusting the flapper chain".

You started me on the wrong coast Ian, does that mean I have to drive to Miami first? Except for a couple blocks along the beach Miami is mostly a craphole, and not the kind of craphole we like to discuss here.

Sure, maybe next Summer to celebrate.
I should be about done by then and back on a regular schedule.

Here I am looking at my CAT scan.
Liver good, Lungs good, bones good.
I need a little work on the colon though.
Looks like I will be cutting back on red meat.

Seattle's a good place to be in the Summer.

Hey Terry, Glad to hear the CAT Scan had good news.

I was just thinking with you being under the weather a bit we should make it easy for you and have the first hook up at Ian's place. :D

That way you can just pop into town for a quick visit and bail...:cool:
