We are truly going to have an international gathering, and that is simply marvellous!  I am filled with a sense of pleasure anticipating your first trip across the Atlantic just to come to the BBQ.  A first trip always has life-influencing occurences, as I remember my first trip across the pond (to Europe) as a cocky graduate student.  WOW, was I ever impressed!  And now you'll have the opportunity to see the Rockies for yourself, how totally awesome they are!  It'll be so great to have you at the BBQ!

Hey, everybody, good evening. I wanted to say thank you to everyone like Eric and Rodney who are thinking about ways to bring us together and ways to celebrate the gentle and joyous spirit of Brokeback Mountain. I had a wonderful day. Not only did I hear Rodney's gifted voice saying Annie Proulx's formidable words, but I also downloaded the new Google Earth at the suggestion of Truman (shakestheground) and looked at my Shangrila--Brokenback Mountain in North-Central Wyoming. It was a Day in Heaven! Something I'm getting quite used to these days!!

Lee, how wonderful for you to say those lovely words -- and thank you!  And tell you what -- I've also located Brokenback on Google Earth.  It is so wonderful, and I'm SO looking forward to being there.  BTW, does the version of Google Earth that you have include a special marker for Lightning Flat?  Mine sure does!

It's nothing to be afraid of -- all it says is "Lightning Flat, Crook County, Wyoming -- The place where Jack Twist grew up" -- quite amazed when I saw that already in the version of GE that I downloaded.  Of course, I've added such places as Ten Sleep, Sage, Brokenback, as well as a few other places around the country.

I'm so looking forward to seeing you again so very soon now!
