I am glad to hear you are coming.  The "creative writing" came from preparing expense vouchers all those years.

No Thursday arrival for Mrs Tux... and I. Fact is I am still struggling with one of my employers for weekend time off.

But not to worry..... Like the old Burger King Theme..... "Have it your way.." We plan on arriving Friday evening.

Although some of my weekend fun stuff will arrive on Thursday ala courier Vette....

Forecast for the area on Friday is partly sunny and
 
SEVENTY-EIGHT DEGREES!!!
 
Are we there yet?!!

Hey everybody:
 
Just a quick note to tell everyone that Pat and I will not be able to attend the midwest region cruise in Kokomo.  I have been having some serious nose bleeding issues that required a couple of days in the hospital.  I have had blood vessels cauterized and more things crammed into my sinus cavity than I care to remember (OK, TMI).  Anyway, I have not had any serious bleeding for two days.  According to the ENT surgeon, Friday is the critical day. Thus, he had advised me not to travel at all and to stay relatively quiet.  In addition, I have an appointment with the ENT Dr. on Friday.
 
As you know, Pat and I love corvettes and our C3, but it is about the people that make up this group.  We look forward to every one of our meetings/get-togethers in order to see our friends and meet new attendees.  As you can imagine, we are extremely disappointed that these circumstances require our cancellation of the trip, however we will be with you in sprit.  WE WILL MISS ALL OF YOU!  We consider it a blessing to be associated with the Corvette family and especially the C3VR Midwest Group.
 
Mike and Terry have done a fantastic job in putting this event together and I am sure you will all have a great time.  Please remember to drive carefully on your way to Kokomo and back home, as well as during the cruise.  We want everyone to have a fun and safe trip.
 
Let's plan another get together before September!!!!!  God Bless You All.
 
See you soon
 
Bob

Bob, I am so sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I was looking forward to seeing the two of you in Kokomo  but I do understand. I will keep this short since my typing cannot keep up with the post timer. Keep us informed and if there is anything we can do, we are not that far away. I am up and about and can hardly sit still now. I will probably over do it again and have to sit a while lol...
 
 Take care and I hope to see you both soon.

Like I expressed to you earlier Bob, your health comes first and you need to take care of yourself. After all you know your not getting any younger LOL. You guy's will be truly be missed, but there will be other gatherings.
 
Now Pat, make sure you keep him calm and quiet, (man do you have your work cut out for ya).Wits End
 Let me know if there's anything we can do for you. Much Love, Terry & Patty Hug

Hi Scott:
 
Thanks for the kind words.  We will miss seeing you and Susie also.  Hope you are feeling much better for the midwest region event.  We will see you soon.  I saw your pictures of the Harley as it was being put back together.  The rear end looked great.  I had the Road King our the day before the nose bleeding started.  Got it inspected, new plates, etc.  I am still looking to trade up to an Electra Glide Classic with the 6-speed, 96 cube motor, etc.  Maybe can do that this year.   We will have to ride some when you feel like it.
 
Be safe and have a great time.
 
Bob

Hey Terry:
 
Thanks for the kind words.  I know only too well that part about not getting any younger.  I am sorry we cannot come also.  We will miss all of the gang, but know we will see you sometime soon.  SRJ will keep me posted as to the events in Kokomo I am sure.  You and your wonderful bride drive carefully and have a great time.
 
God Bless
 
Bob H.

All mine needs is a couple of small things like a reflector or two and  I sent the new seat out to be custom fit and have gel pads put in it. As soon as mine is ready I will ride . I am just stuborn enough to get on it.
Like I said before , we look forward to seeing you two. if you get out and need a place to ride to , come on over! Even if I can't ride yet, we can sit and look at them and talk abou the wives . Shocked LOL 
 
Get well my friend and we will see you soon !
