To: Betti Avant ('69): I have to be careful with tapes also. Nothing
like having a "rash" while you are in the hospital - they think you
have the creeping crud or something and get all excited.

I'll keep as many fingers crossed as I can (good old arthritis) for
your job interview at Madigan.

We just bought a motor home and we really need some tips on where to
stay... what to pack for cooking etc. Would also like some information
on KOAs... we used to stay at them when we would drive down from
Alaska... but at that time we had tents... just ask Gene how long it 
took to put the tent up.

Also, how to pack for a trip... short or long...

We thank you for any information, this will certainly be an experience 
for us...

To: Donna Williams (60)

Hey Donna (or anyone who has her new email),

I found Skip Heavner; drop me a line, if you're still interested.

I offer the following to the Class of 1965 who will be getting together
this coming weekend for their 40th reunion:

Read the following story - High School Reunion Tips 

I once believed we would find ALL the members of each class. Not so...
some desire not to be found. What about those great classmates that
still live in the Tri-Cities but don't/won't make effort to attend.
Don't bother, they have little or no interest. The people that 'need'
to be there... will come... You know the routine... 'If you build it 
they will come.' Well, not everyone can find their way.

I'm not sure how many graduated in 1965, but I'll bet that +/-100 will
show up to the reunion this weekend. That'll be 1/2 of the number that
came to your 20th get together. Don't let it bother you. Enjoy those
friends that will take time out of their busy schedule to come - drive 
or fly thousands of miles - to show up... in Richland, Washington for
one weekend of caring for one another.

Re: The boys are back in town

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh goodie... it's official... the boys (and babes) are
all heading for Richland for the '65ers' 40th reunion... Just talked 
to Terry Davis ('65) and he is peeing his pants... (can you say pee 
in email papers?)... he'll be hitting Seattle first then riding to
Richland with Ricky Warford ('65)... Heidlebaugh will be comin' in from
Laska up over the pole flying in a big airliner... Big party at Carl's
on Thursday night in case ya ain't heard. Wendel Doc 40 Adair ('65-'67
or so) and I have plans to bring the bomb over... hope the '65ers want
it set up... I'm sure Dame Hoff ('64) will want it for her bash anyway. 

The L.A. Roadster Show was great as usual. Saw a friend of Adair's
there (I see this guy everywhere... he's even more hard core than I
am... drives his little roadster all over the US). I drove a little
Roadster over from Vegas and the ones we built for sale road in a warm
trailer... I say warm because the trip over to L.A. was freezing... it
was chilly all the way to the Holleran summit and then it became
downright cold... as we headed into Cahone Pass it was so foggy you
could hardly wee and it was so cold my teeth were chattering...
naturally I was wearing cut offs and a t-shirt... finally got warmer as
we pulled into the Fairplex. Then we started setting up the display and
it got nice and warm... as we pulled the two roadsters from the trailer
it was like ants on honey and remained pretty much that way for the
entire show... I'm sending a picture of us tearing down the display...
the black roadsters are the ones we built to take orders from the
little brown one is the one I drove... We were invited to enter one of
the cars in the Grand National Roadster Show in January and invited to
attend as vendors too... I knew that Boyd had lost his display space
which was two down from us to a covered eating area... I wondered if he
had taken another spot and there was no word on it before hand... When
we set up our space was there, Zipper Motors was there And Brizzio was
next to us. In Boyd's space was a small covered area too small for much
eating... besides it was way away from all the food... Then the true
story emerged... the LA Roadsters had just become tired of his attitude
and set up this silly little tent as a pretense... He thru a fit and
says he'll never be back to the show... I assume somebody will take
that space next year as it was of no real use 'cept for Brizzio's boys
to lounge in...

So here's to a wonderful reunion... hope everyone has a blast!
