Hey John, Update your sig line to reflect the new bike  :motonoises:

  BDF, since I posted that I was coming for sure, 4 people have dropped out.  I'm changing my deodorant and tooth paste  and my undies twice a day now so if they want to change their mind and come, they should not be offended.  I'm sure with your sparkling manors and ways it could not be your problem.

Just be careful making all those changes at once Wayne- you could end up with cotton- mouth, minty but sticky armpits and a burning sensation..... never mind. You just have to know that Japanese six- day underwear and a bit of dementia are a bad combination, right?

Agreed on the personality part- I don't think I have ever offended anyone so that cannot be it. Hmmmmm.

Well you go ahead and put toothpaste in your underwear and I will work on The Cat Joke (TM) so maybe the cat comes out of it a little better than before and we'll see what happens.

Looking to seeing all that do make it on Saturday. The Super Bowl seems to be bumping into a late Sat. social event- who'd a thunk it?

BDF, could it be that people are afraid that Pat and Sher are  going to have their mean dog with them? I dd not have a treat last spring at their place and and almost got licked to death.

You mean 'Killer' as I like to call her? :-)  Hey, I think it would up attendance if she was there. We could put a sash around her, claim she is an assistance dog (lowers my blood pressure) and let her loose in the restaurant. We'd all get thrown out but I betcha' it would be a hilarious 10 minutes leading up to that....  One of the true highlights of Tech. Day: watching Angel find one of those elusive and so very pesky water bottles w/in her reach.  :rotflmao:

Coming down to the wire folks, better sign up if you do not want to miss this one.... and who would want to miss it?

If you need any more reason, I have put in a request for better weather and it looks like it worked- going to be in the mid- 40's on Sat. (14F here now). Sure, it seemed like a waste of money when I paid the old weather Hag but you cannot argue with results!

  Tym come to the dinner, I'm sure you will find at least one dipstick.BDF is it true that the town of Coventry has asked you to stop taking any more at the dinner as the town is afraid of overcrowding? Is the board of health letting the diner open? I hear that they are afraid of some one bring in dead animal parts!     No Bad Days

Nah, we got lots' of room for this one.

Animal parts....? Of course, aren't you bringing animal parts? Doesn't everyone?

We may even take the bike to this one but I doubt it. Going to be 40+ on Sat. but it is snowing lightly here now and they have salted the roads again; going down to 11 tonight.

Looking forward to seeing you folks on Sat!

I understand completely Chris- it is a long way out for you folks on the island.

We should catch up later in the season sooner or later though. We will be having several M&G's in CT that should be a bit easier for you to make than this one.

Otherwise, looks like a FANTASTIC day for this area! 45 F out right now, sunny and the wind is at zero MPH! I did not expect this to be a ride- too event but for those close enough, it looks pretty good for the first of February. Going down to about freezing tonight. The roads are clear and dry although there is some sand around from the last snow so for anyone considering riding, please be aware that there will probably be sand lines in intersections and the the junctions of the smaller side- streets.

Looking forward to seeing you folks in a few hours. Going to decide in a few minutes which arm to put deodorant under and everybody can take a guess later....  :rotflmao:

BDF and MRS BDF Nice job I did not think so many would show up. A special thanks to Ben for the rides to and from the diner , A real nice thing to do, all the taxis were busy and i would rather not drive at night in a strange town. Great time!

I will check the directions and make any corrections needed but what you describe sounds exactly correct, and the road you were actually on was Arnold Rd.; the restaurant is on that very road although it road changes names at the next stop light, 4.1 miles from the start of Arnold Rd. where you turned left.

Sat. was a great time! We had 21 folks show up, a few staying overnight at a local hotel. A good time, great people and good food in a nice, accommodating, venue. This event was on the long side which was great as it gave most everyone a chance to chat after eating. A few games of air hockey and pool also followed dinner. We left around 9:30 PM but a few stayed on playing pool so I don't know when the 'event' actually ended :-)

Thanks to everyone for coming out. Andrea has a few photos that she will post a bit later on.

Thanks to all who came out and joined us for our fun & games!  Brian and I were so thrilled with the turnout....great way to overcome any winter blues.
We shared many laughs, accompanied by great food, drinks & games!  Fun times for sure!!  We had attendees from RI, CT, MA & NY.  4 newcomers came out to see what we were all about too...sure appeared that they all had fun, and we suspect they'll all be back.  Some folks also stayed overnight, turning it into a nice weekend get-away.
Might I also thank my fellow COGette's who joined me in some fun games of Air Hockey, I enjoyed that EVEN when loosing.... :o

Here's some pic's, hope you enjoy,
