Christy;

Glad to here you guy's made it. I am not going to be there this year. I was with My wife in the hospital on Friday when I got a call from my mother in law's house keeper saying she had fallen off a ladder. I went up there to find her on the floor with a dislocated shoulder so I called  911 and got her to emergency where we spend most of the day. I got her and my wife to the mother in laws house. I have to go out of town today and will be back tomorrow late so I have some one to help out till I get back and I will be staying close to home for a wile. Sorry I will not be there I am going to miss everyone.

I was looking forward to meeting a lot of new people. Now I'm just down in the dumps

Have fun and stay dry.

Don,

I am so sorry to hear about that. That is really too bad. Keep on going, and "don't let the devil know you are down."

Praying for you...I know what kind of thing you are in...sorry you can't make it.

God bless,

John

Sorry to hear about that Don.  Seems when it rains it pours, doesn't it. . . .  .well, there's always next year.  We tentatively are going to try to do this again then too if the wind blows our way and WE don't have any major problems. . . . good luck.  Christy

Christy
You ask if wisdom comes with age, I am well past 60 looking at 70 this year.  You are a youngsteer and as far as wisdom with age, you just bought another bus didn't you,  makes me wonder about all of us.  I would not do it any other way. Ups, I also ride ar Harley trike.  So much for my wisdom, just having a lot of fun. Will look you up in the Q on the 26 or 27th.

Ed, we'll be looking forward to meeting you & Jannett!  I like ANYONE who calls me a youngster, ha ha. 

I would like to clarify to everyone that there are actually TWO Beaver Prevost conversions in here. . .  ours is black/silver/gray, parked next to Bob Gilbert's red eagle, and Dick Egler is in his, parked a little to the east of us, also facing Kuehn Rd, and it is also black with some tan/gold in the paint job.  The BEAVER logo is more visible on the front of his, as he is not blocked by a vendor booth at this time.  If you turn into the entrance to Quartzsite market Place, if you turn right, you'll be heading to visit Dick, and if you turn left, you'll see our coach and white Jeep Grand Cherokee as you head towards the parking area for the bus rally. 

Buses just keep trickling in. . one after another.  I'm working today Cry trying to get our business paperwork done, so I just peer out the window longingly, enjoying an occasional visit from another nut, er, I mean BUSNUT.  Looking forward to any and all visits and will be roaming the buses soon!

HAHHAHAHA, just keep it coming Van!   Wink Wink

Bored?  HAH!  The only thing boring is having to do some business paperwork!  Hopefully, I'll be motivated enough to get the payroll done tonight, which relieves me of having to stop and do it on Wednesday or something! 

No, we don't worry so much about being bored, as we can ALWAYS find something to do, but on the other hand, we are REALLY looking forward to meeting everyone!

of course, it's about time I warn all Busnuts. . . it's kind of a bad thing Cry, but I have a mental impairment when it comes to faces and names Angry. . . i don't know what it is about me. ..  I'm great with phone numbers, addresses, jobs. . . technical type details. . . but I'm HORRIBLE at the abstract. . .faces, names to go with them. . .etc.  So, PLEASE do not be offended if I keep asking your name or meet you and then 15 mins later look at you in a confused daze, ha ha.  I worry because I'm going to meet so many people and I just KNOW I'm going to offend someone when i can't connect their name and face the next day or the day after. . .  and it's not that I don't WANT to, I just seem to have some type of face-blockage thing going on. Cry  I swear, if I didn't see Larry every single morning, I'd wonder who in the heck it was coming through the door that night! Cheesy Cheesy

I always thought that maybe this was why I could rip guts out of an electric furnace and wire it from scratch, but couldn't sketch a face to save my life.  I can tell you the phone number of every builder, vendor, etc that we have, but if you lined every salesman up against the wall and asked me which one went with each phone number, I probably couldn't get HALF of them correct.  So, anyway, please, just keep introducing yourself to me over and over so I don't feel like QUITE such an idiot! Huh  Christy Hicks

We drove by everybody, yesterday. That looked like such a hoot there. I hope you guys are all having fun, and maybe it won't rain anymore on you.

When does the big get-together end, and when do people start rolling out?

God bless,

John
