Today we entered Charlie into the "LOST in 50's" parade.
We are the first entry to sign up so far.
Will this put us first in the parade?
At the end of the parade we will have a static display for TWO DAYS.
Bring your show car or truck or....aircraft? and join us.
I am hoping we will be last so we could be "Tail end Charlie." I may request such.
see this url to learn about our most delightful week-end 17-20 May this year:
We will be having a coupla work parties to get the old beastie looking as good as possible before the parade. We got to get her spruced up for the static display. Stay tuned.
A remarkable thing happened yesterday. I got a call from one of my old Marine Corps buddies I had not heard from since 1976! He somehow became aware of the blog, saw my phone number there, and we have re-connected BIG TIME! HOORAY! He also sent a generous donation, as anyone may if they can, please.
Tax deductible donations can be sent to
