A belated "Happy Anniversary!" to Jim ('53) and Edna (NAB)
McKEOWN on this occasion. I would have put a note in yesterday's
AS, but your anniversary wasn't on the calendar or even a David
yellow post-it. Hope you had an extra special time.

-Bob Carlson, aka Mike CLOWES ('54) ~ Mount Angel, OR  where we
      are waiting for the weather to turn so that we can enjoy 
      the Silverton Hills Strawberry Festival in Coolidge-McClain
      Park. Weather guessers claim mid 80s on Father's Day.

Re: Father's Day in Vegas!

Wow... this is a first... for a long time, at least... The L.A.
Roadsters decided to give up the administration of their L.A.
Roadster Show to a promoter who has it for the next 10 years... 
as he made this change and that I grew less and less interested
in making my yearly Father's Day trek to the Fairplex for fun and
frolic... the less it sounded like fun, the less my interest was
aroused to the point where I simply decided to bag it... Today,
the delinquents met the two... two guys who decided to give it
one last try... at Stateline for breakfast to see them off as the
guys who are not going always do... I didn't even drive a hot rod
to Stateline... how's that for a dampened interest... just talked
to the boyz and so far it has been the cluster... uhhhhhh... we
figured it would be... Swapers have always been able to set up
way early and they weren't let in till 10am... and then only 10
at a time were "escorted" to their spaces... charging 40 smackers
to come in and shop today, but not leaving your hot rod at the
show further lightened the "crowd" for today... We'll see how
people like having to wait in line with alla late comers tomorrow
morning and pay an added fee if they did not "register" their
cars by June 1... "register??????" Oh my what fun... sooo Sarah
will be taking me to lunch on Sunday for the first time in many
years... we've always done it a day or two after Father's day up
to now... ahhhhhhhhh I love the smell of Nitro and cow poop inna
air (no wait... that's another show I no longer attend)... Oh by
the way, the other day I mentioned General Krulak... no clue
where I got his name... the General I met with was Hockmuth... 
memory is going fast... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Gail GHIRARDO ('65) 
and Mike SAMS ('65) on your special day, June 17, 2017!!!!!!!!!!
