Sorry to hear about Patti's trauma. Happy to know she is doing well now...hoping for a full and speedy recovery! Ah, the joys of lake front living...either your dock is 25' from the water, or it is floating away. You can handle this. Best wishes to you both for a great summer.

This has been a crazy month. Patti had a blood clot from her knee after surgery, go to her lungs blocking the blood thus causing a heart attack. I was on the Hotrod Power Tour in Fort Wayne, Ind. I flew home immediately, she is home now and doing well. The water at our lake house is about 25’ from the deck. It is causing a big mess. A lot of wood will have to be burned. I guess it will give me something to do.

Well I hear that Oklahoma State got it’s butt kicked yesterday by K-State. I didn’t get to see or hear the game, they have a saying - Somedays you get the bear and somedays the bear gets you. I guess it is true.

I got a wild idea yesterday and decided I wanted matching aluminum grills in
My GT hood scoop. So, I went crazy and designed two of them. I will have David
Weld them up, paint them black and polish the top flat surface. They will be ready
For the car when it comes back from the paint shop.

We’ll it is finally time my car is headed to the paint shop. I installed my custom built grill for fit before we paint. It looks pretty good considering billet customs wanted four hundred dollars just for a mock-up. You are saying is he crazy-yes I am!!
