    We will be there weather permitting. Don't make the coffee quit so strong. Last year it wouldn't hardly pour out of the cup. How is Karin feeling?

      HI Carl,The coffee shouldn't be quite as strong, Chris is buying a new coffee maker. Besides, I think its the water and wasn't the coffee. Karin is doing good, finished her first round of Chemo, will do the
      CT scan and see if they find anything, and I hope they don't, God willing.

          Yes, Carl - a new Mr. Coffee, some fresh grinds, clean cups and fresh water.
          Bring Betty on by, it will be great to see you both!

                Just in case anyone was interested, the weather is supposed to be pretty nice for this time of year.

                Boy that link is a mouthfull, in some years past it was all snow and ice and 0 degrees.

                    Had a great day at the Swap Meet!
                    We had members from Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Missouri stop by - as well as our own Midway members.
                    We also had a couple salt racers drop by - they both drive Studebakers - and I was honored to have a couple famous custom car guys chatting with me for awhile. (no need to drop names)
                    Hope day 2 will be just as fun!

                      Had a great day at the swap meet.

                      Drove a total of five hours to get there and back.

                      Spent about 5 hours walking through 4 large buildings, including the car corral. (No Studes)

                      Spent $1 on an item, forgot, and left it at the Stude club table.

                      Spent precious little time visiting with Stude friends. I always appreciate the coffee, peanuts, peanut brittle, chairs, and hospitality at the booth. The fellows there always allow my group to leave items at the booth until we are ready to leave, so that we don't have to tote things 'n stuff all over the place for hours.

                      I always leave wishing I had spent more time just shootin' the breeze with Chirs, Malcom, and the other Stude folks that drop by. Too much to take in, too little time.

                      Thanks again, Chris and Malcom!!

                      (Sorry we missed Carl and Betty, too.)

                        Dave - we loved having you, and wish you could sit a spell and laugh with us! I wrote down as many SDC members as I could who dropped by to chat with us, and it covered almost a whole page. There were some whose names I didn't catch - but we shared a smile with them anyway. Thanks for coming by to brighten our day!

                        We had a wonderful time this weekend at the meet. We gave away about 90 Turning Wheels, 7 pots of coffee, 2 batches of home-made cookies, 1 large batch of perfect peanut brittle, a whole crockpot of chili, and a whole crockpot of spicy nachos. In turn, visitors to our booth donated over $40 to the Studebaker National Museum. We had 3 current members renew their memberships, and 2 former members rejoined the club. Several folks took sign-up sheets for the national club, promising to send in their money soon.

                        It's hard work having so much fun with such great people! Let's do it again next year, OK?
