Hey Roger...another year has rolled around and it's time to celebrate another birthday. Happy Birthday! Will we see you in Joplin this year?

Hi Rodger, Happy New Year!

Yes, got your voice message and that's the reason for me signing up here, to say hi back. Regarding your banquet in February, not sure yet that I can attend, but will consider it. Tell me more about it will ya?

Hey... remember that cute girl at the DeKalb GWRRA meeting? Well.... hehe... I am not only dating her, but living with her as well! We have really hit it off well.

Thank you for your response. Approximately how long does the journey last, although I should be retired, I am not and I will have to budget my time. Thanks.

Good Day. I am Michael Anderson and I am interested in making the journey along Route 66 in my 1967 Mustang. I would like to join a group that will be traveling the route in 2010. It is my understanding that you are a member of a group that will be doing this, if so, I would like some information on joinging. Thank you for any information.

To good possibilities... Favoriate is the Kentwood Arms Hotel in downtown on Rt. 66. Was a 5 star in it's day. Univewrsity has it now as dorm. They have dining hall for students along with lots of parking. I'm working on it. Also, Ryans has a place on rt. 66 as we enter Sgf. it is next to an old motel (still operating) This can be a sure thing if we want it to be. Ryan's has a buffet (only) for lunch so could feed us all rather quickly. I'll report more in a few days.

Don't feel bad about it, Roger. No big deal. I was hiking with my family, slipped on wet rocks and hit the back of my head on a bolder. Ended up with a sub-dural hematoma, air-lifted from southern Illinois to Barnes in St. Louis and in ICU for several days. I've been home recuperating for a month, and am now in the office about 3 days a week. Doctors don't think there will be long-lasting effects, but expect recovering to be slow. My main problem now is being tired a lot. And when I get tired the other symptoms are more pronounced -- headache, dizziness, balance. Taste and smell is affected, but is improving a little bit.

Obviously my travel this summer will be limited. I can't drive long distances (more than back and forth to work). I'm lucky to have 2 sons who can drive for me when necessary. My oldest son, Wade, enjoys traveling the road with me. I have the added benefit that he is a GREAT photographer and will use his ability to add to our photo library as we travel along the road.

The Sept. 5 party sounds fun. I'm putting it on my calendar. What time?

Hey Dude...

I left a message for you in anothr location, but I am not sure it will get to you. Anyway, it looks like we will have a Sheriff's escort (Motorcycles) through Greene Sounty and Springfield. I am going to meet with the Sheriff in the next 10 days to go over more details. Now all I have to do is find a place to eat.

That was cute. I've been watching your emails. I may try to see you off this year, if that's what you're asking.

I had an accident recently and am still recuperating. I'm in the office about 3 days a week and work from home the other 2. My travel is a little restricted.

Thanks for the invite for the Ride for Relay in Sept. I will check and see when you'll be in Springfield. I work 1 building off the 9th st alignment in Springfield just West of Watt Bros. Pharmacy and drive it nearly everyday.
