Wadda ya mean think yer crazy? I've seen yer Cj pics... Ya ain't "normal" I reckon that would imply that I'm right there wit ya bro...

Jury is still out on if Tux getsta go My lovely bride would be pretty content in drivin that white thang. I probally will concede with her this time. Although Tux is all shined up and ready I won't have any spare time ta spend towards the trip this week.
I am kicking off a project at work this week that has been in the making since March. This requires an insane amount of extra time. (Fact is I just got home and left at 11:00 this morning.) I had agreed to work with people on the 3rd shift hours this week however due to some software issues I will be in @ 3:00am Monday.
One of the fellows who works for me son passed away in a car wreck. His funeral is Monday morning. So I am cut a little shorter.
Then I received a call from the nursing home that my grandmother passed away this morning. Needless ta say I wouldn't mind being cloned out right now. I suppose once I take time ta breath I will digest some of the stress and emotions twirlin around inside me.
Bottom line is I am really looking forward ta the show this year.... I need a break right now!

Thanxs, She was 91 years young. My grandfather passed away last year and she developed alzheimers shortly thereafter.
She left kinda cool though... Saturday she had all of her clothes stacked on the foot of her bed out of the drawers. She said that "Daddy" my grandfather told her to get them out and ready cause he was commin to take her home.
We left them there cause she wouldve thrown a fit an there weren't but a few night clothes.
I guess he came when we weren't lookin cause she was gone this morning after breakfast.

Larry, so sorry to hear about both of your grandparents.  I lost both of my parents last year and it still smarts once in awhile.  Take some time off, do what you have to do for your family (and yourself), and we'll see you when we see you.

Its looking like a beautiful weekend again for Funfest!

Just a small peek at last year for those of you that didn't make it. And they were still coming in for hours after. The arrow is pointing to my 77. Just past the last  field of cars at the last entrance is going to be club parking for this year.

Jim, if this is to big we can link it or reduce it.

Friday is the magic day !  Then its 3 days of Corvettes followed by two weeks of working on Corvettes followed by Eureka Springs Corvette weekend. At this point I will give it a rest for the season. Other than a few local events and cruises, I am done this year. The energy and the cash for this year went poof. Next year though is a different story. I found something that perked my interest  maybe for 2007.

 I think I might really like this.   Its  hard to go to them all.

Hope everyone had a safe, uneventful trip home.  After getting all loaded up and "The Toy" fastened down on the trailer I ended up pulling out and heading north about 2:30 Sunday afternoon.  It was 92 degrees according to the themometer in the truck.  As I swung west at Champaign, IL the wind switched from the south to the west (a tail wind to a head wind) and the outside temperature began to drop.  Drove through occasional showers until north of Madison, WI.
 
I was within a couple hours of home when the eyelids began to get heavy so I pulled into a rest area and took a nap for an hour.  Sleepy  Ended up pulling into the drivewat at "The Ranch" just before 1:30AM.  The outside temperature was 45 degrees according to the truck's thermometer!  Shocked  As I was walking up the stairs from the basement the clock in the family room chimed 1:30 and I was sound asleep by 1:31 and slept for 9 hours...!!!  Sleepy  Sleepy  Sleepy
 
I enjoyed the whole weekend, especially meeting some more C3VRers face to face for the first time and seeing familier faces again...!!!

Glad to hear you made it home without incident. Clap
