Driver 39 and I hope to join you this year. I hope that I will be retired and we can travel a lot more.
I think that I will be calling Monday to make our reservations.

We're looking forward to seeing you there.

Are you sure you want to be retired? No more paid holidays, no more weekends to look forward to, and no more looking forward to the end of the work day. Speaking from experience, retirement is tough and it might take an hour or two to adjust to the new life style.

Everyday is a Holiday, everyday is weekend, everyday is a payday, and everyday is a good day to do what you want, and every morning you can get up and feel you've adjusted. What a life. Really don't know how I worked for 30 years and gave the government 6 years. What an enjoyable way to live. Did I cover it all Oakman?
Everyone reading this that are calling me crazy will get the chance to do it some day. When the time comes, jump in and enjoy. It's a dirty job but someone needs to do it..

I received your PM and Joyce and I are looking forward to seeing you and Driver 39 at the rally. ABC is pet friendly so feel free to bring Sarge.

Oakman and Petunia. We really want to come to Branson and see you all again but it will have to be by sneaking in the back door with a late reservation or other campground visit as I broke my hip bone this past sunday night and am in for a spell of stormy therapy weather for the next little while. Don't worry though you will not be out of our minds and if you have any bad luck at all you may just see us there yet. Brian and Joanne (Old Guys)

Oh man, I'm sorry to hear of your unfortunate accident. I hope you heal quickly my friend and have a speedy recovery.

Be sure to have Joanne deliver plenty of Canadian Club to your bedside.

Brian, I am so sorry to hear about your accident. I hope you have a swift recovery. Keep us advised on your progress. Joanne, I see where Bob has suggested you deliver plenty of Canadian Club to Brian. I suggest you take a sip or two yourself. Taking care of sick or injured husbands is a rough way to go also.

Back at you Brian. Sorry to hear about your hip. Wish you a quick recovery so we can see you at the FROG rally at the Falls in July?

Just wanted you to know that we can not say yes or no yet to Branson for Jun 3-6.
We will be close in Dallas/Ft Worth area but we MUST be in the Florida Keys on Jun 10th. That is the only set dates/reservation we have on our USA tour. We wanted to stop along the gulf coast a few days before we reach the Keys and the timing is just too close.
If a hurracane is building we probably will make changes and make it.
As we get closer we will keep you posted.

Brian, sorry to hear about your hip, the Naviguesser and I wish you a speedy recovery and hope you can get to the rally fully recovered

Brian at our age we have no chance of playing for the Canucks so maybe this is the time to quit the hockey

I've been getting that same message. I'm thinking winter hours mean we come in when we feel like it. I've got the rally coordinator's personal cell phone number somewhere in all my paperwork so I'll dig it up and give her a call and find out what the hours of business are.

Just an FYI - I called and got the same message, but left them a message of what I wanted and what dates - they called back when they were in the office and confirmed the info. May take a couple of days with the holidays, but sure you will hear from them after that
