after last yr ( which my wife and i are still talking about ) i really hate to say i can't get there this week end but i hope everyone that does has a great time, and if you weren't with us last yr. do the mine tour it's something that you will enjoy and remember the rest of your life.

Jack,You're Killin' Me !!

I'm tied up tighter than a Houdini Impersonator ! The larger problem is I can smell those stuffed cabbages all the way over in NE Ohio ! After having attended a Meet-N-Greet with my Wife for the first time,last year,I'm regretting not making this little 'Ol Get-Together ! Here's Hoping that the 'Ol No.9 Mine Labor Day Party is a Success ! Take Care,My Friend !

Way tied up here likewise for near future, but sounds like good time to be had there.

But on the subject of another Meet & Greet, if there is some intrest, I have a connection to possiblly set up and do a similiar tour as was had at last year's (@Lehigh) Meet &Greet over at one of Reading Coal's operations, whenever.

Any interest, anyone?

Could/should start another thread to have relative discussion and comments on this topic.
