Re: Still incorrect.
Preach it, Jimmer. Skurka should have disclosed his multi-million dollar advertising contract with Fancy Feast, when we all know Friskies was first and best cat food on the market. I haven't on...

Re: Is it a low snow enough year for a late May trip above tree line in the sierras?
