Hey Guys.....
I would like to thank you for the warm welcome to the LIFER CLUB!!Big smile
I guess this Corvette thing is more than just a "passing fancy" (I bought my first one in 1970)
so I might as well sign up for life.
 
I joined C3VR in 2007 because of the Vette, however, I became a LIFER in 2011 because of the
frendships of you guys and gals.Thumbs Up
 
I want to say again what a great time I had with you in Effingham.
 
Hope to see ya'll again soon.  (Is that how ya say it in Texas?)
 
Dean

OK, guys...... ENOUGH!!  ENOUGH!!
 
You are all wrong.
 
Although I like that devilish little eboEvil Smile, and Dan Skopp is an old military man, and what is not to like about Dennis' goody bag, and I don't even know what Adams Mali is, YOU ARE ALL WRONG!
 
No Dave, I was not a Screaming Eagle, however we provided direct air combat support to the Screaming Eagles.
 
The real reason that I became a Lifer is........well..........Ahh.......Maybe that is a story for another time, another place.
