Yea he is, Griff. a few years back at Oink I was sitting with Vlado relaxing, and Diva was in the trailer (asleep NOT) Had to be about 4 am Flung open the door and yelled "are the temps alright? He got up, checked them out (WSM's) "Yea" he said, then we had another beer! She sure does bring her A game to a comp!

Too funny, but true. Love hanging with the guy. Too cool of a pal to hang with a pit indeed! Look forward to this year at oink.

John and Griff, going to be there? It was a blast last year!

Don't worry, The "Coffee" Queen should be there ( Swine Lin) of Dave's team. ) she always goes to Tim Hortonts and gets a HUGE quantity of Coffee And goodies,
Your the best, Lyn.

P.S Ooopappy and Nancy make a killer cup of joe!
