How about a VOTE? Oh, and Chicago!!

Good morning everyone.

I know...two posts in less than 24 hours? You are thinking...what could Dale be up to? Is he perhaps not getting enough sleep?  Could the allergies be driving him crazy?  Both are probably true, but that isn't why I'm here again so soon.  (Although, the recent 85 degree weather and rain we had has caused the yearly cursed blooming of the Bradford Pears and a dramatic increase in my weepy-eyed look.  I love nothing much more than living in the South, but OMG...stop with the Bradford Pear planting. They are pretty for about a week and then they smell like old fish.  I will never understand the attraction to them but every developer feels the need to plant rows and rows of these trees in every community down here.)

Oops..enough ranting about my allergies and trees.  You can't say I didn't warn you from the very beginning that I tend to go off on little side trips before I finally get my tracks back to where they need to be.

First...I know most of you didn't notice the Poll I put up about a week ago in the upper left of my blog.  It is entirely my fault because I was distracted (see a pattern here yet) and forgot to tell y'all about it.  Forgive me.  I would love to get an idea from you what your dream roombox would be.  I think there are a couple days left on it.  Don't worry, I'm not tracking your vital information or anything. :-)  I just want to get an idea of what people want.  Personally, I'm leaning toward making a very haunted roombox (Disneyesque, Haunted Mansion type of thing)...but no more info on that yet.  That sure was a long way to go to just ask you to vote.  Thanks!!

Second.  I know that I mentioned way back when I first started this blog that I would be going to Chicago for the big Bishop International Show on April 8, 9 & 10.  I would love to know if anyone else is going and maybe there would be a chance to meet up somewhere or just say "Howdy".  I'm generally pretty friendly and I'm not afraid to holler across a big room if I see you.  I'm still leaning toward wearing a tux jacket with tails.  It just sounds like fun attire to me and how many people you think will be running around in a tails?

Till later!


  1. Heehee Dale, I would go with the tux and tails. Worn with jeans :) I vote haunted room box.
    Wish I was going to TB in Chicago and TBM.

    Victoria ❤

  2. Have fun at the TB show!! Can't wait to hear all about it!!!


  3. I voted haunted room also.
    Tux sounds good :o)


  4. You are funny! I promise not to plant one of those trees. ;)

  5. Seems like the tux jacket with tails is currently winning. :-) I think with a nice shirt and some jeans and boots it will be quite the look! Thanks everyone for the comments!
    Dale, you are now my new best friend because you have promised not to plant any of the cursed trees! BIG HUGS!

  6. lol! We "Dales" have to stick together. ;)

  7. Oh so true!! Not many of us Dale's running around...guy or gal. :-)

  8. I'd love to go the Chicago AND to the Tom Bishop fair, sadly it's a tad too far from the UK for only a few days! lol Lucky ole you...err I'd go casual myself! ;o))

    Michelle :o))

  9. Maybe one year you can go and take advantage of some of the classes the have the week before the show starts. I'll be sure to post lots of pics for everyone.
