Edit: removed comment cause I sounded like a jerk.

But on a serious note the only cholla I can think of is the cacti...is that what you're referring to?

Oh OK

Nice looking wood but I'm packed as it is. Hopefully someone else will take you up on it though

Oh and thanks Again for sending out the letter! Who would have though one post would turn into a decent sized meeting??

I'm ready to throw a two-year-old sized tantrum -- I got called in to work today! I am so pissed! I will mail you a box of the cholla, Mr.Desert. Then you can distribute it amongst everyone since you all live so close! I'm so sorry, guys! I was really, really looking forward to this!

We did, sorry you could not be there for this one. It was a pleasure meeting you all.
Lets plan another one, I heard some one say lunch for the next one. I can relate with the Warranty calls, my number is attached to the "1-800 call this number if you have a problem" one at work too, It is real tough to take the calls from Africa or Australia at 0 dark hundred some times though.

Got a novel idea, just food for thought.
Pork and Brew State BBQ Championship at the Santa Anna Star Event Center in Rio Rancho, friday or sunday, Team BS Grilling's booth.
I will have plenty of BBQ to share with you, Even if we don't have a meeting (to speak of) come on by and I'll treat you to some of our fine BBQ. Saturday for me is out, this is our competition day and awards at 5, so, busy will be an understatement, but come on out any way and see some of the best pit masters in the country at work.
BTW; 18th overall, 9th in Pork for us in Artesia this last weekend.
