Hopefully I am not the only one with a regular car. Last year a little out of place so they hid me.

01-18-2010, 08:24 PM
Well, I hate to say it but, I will not be able to join everyone this year. I really can't leave my area since I do not know who much more time my grandfather will be around.

I wish I could go to meet everyone. I guess I will just have to wait until 2011. :(
