Made it home no problems! I echo what Carl is saying, had a great time visiting with everyone! Believe it or not the most fun I had was working on my car with everyone! Told Randi about it once we got into Ohio. It was the right decision to not worry her. The weather on the drive back was fabulous.

Good seeing everyone!

Perk and I made it home OK, drove in the rain all the way. Had a great time visiting and telling white lies and paying close attension to those told to me. Ate way to much.

Anyone heard from Steve?

Got to see some neat Falcons, some I think were left in the trailers.

Thanks to the the guys for the fine weather, at least there was no HAIL this time.

Will be there in May 2016.

Someone please advise if they have heard from Steve & Margaret. Lugoff is near Columbia where the flooding is occurring. Sandy & i had no trouble since middle Tn. is a "tad" lower than the mountains in East Tn. Memphis is the Flood Area as West Tn is Flat, Not mid west flat though. :-) Had a great time.

One would think the AIR in Waynesville NC is clear, but not as crisp as the AIR I breathe. "Rarefied" :-). Great to see you and Kay again!

The AIR that CAT owners breathe is always much sweeter and rarified....MG owners are condemned to breathe "ordinary" air..oh well, perhaps some day when I grow up.....chuckle....please say high to Sandy for us...

Carl that should have read JAGUAR (pronounced JAG-U-WAR) snobs. Now isn't that much sweeter and more rarified.

Sure, Merv. You have to hang with us, since they won't let you in the Jag-u-war Snob Club anyway. :)

As all Jag-u-war owners know, no American engine ever built can remotely come close to the Smooth, Refined Power of a Jag-u-war six. Never mind that the rarified air they breathe is known to occasionally cause light headedness.

IMO, nothing sounds as sweet as a Big Healey six, though!
