Well, it's April and November, just like always, so we'll be looking for you.

Well, you know, Fort Toulouse is the last weekend in April, and that is not a long time off. I received my application just the other day and am getting ready to send it in now. So maybe we will see ...

I think that you are looking for something similar to what is used at Martin's Station. You can contact Billy Heck and see if he has any suggestions.

This is one of those things I wish I had done when I was young enough to do it. I am afraid that time has passed. It must have been great.

Another thing to consider is the way people used the internet now. Less and less are sitting in front of a computer and typing in messages. Now people use their iPhones or Androids. I was at a meet ...

I use a leather belt about 1" wide. I have worn it 24/7 many times and never had a problem. Others use a silk sash rolled into sort of a rope. I imagine a strip of wool would work but I think ...
