So, NASSM 2023 in West (by damn) Virginia. Who's going?
« on: December 03, 2022, 09:18:31 AM »
Virtually our back door for us DelMarVa & PA folks.  I have booked the 'official' hotel, but I hear they are at capacity now.  Still several other hotels close by.

So, who's going? Could be a virtual SMMM'23!

I was away this weekend and am just seeing this.
I might be able to come down the first weekend.   Definitely need to reach out to Shiny, Dengel, Spag and Reed.

So sorry about your wife, Bob.  But come on down anyway.  It's just a day's drive, and you won't be alone when you get there!

Bob take your grandson on a road trip.  Tell him about his handprints on the bumper.  Make it a life memory for him.

I can neither confirm or deny that I have ever been to or will go to an event of this type.  Please consult my personal assistant - Wartie - for additional lack of information.

Thank you.

I trade Bix in on a pickup summer of 21.  Found out a FedEx pilot out of Michigan flew in 2 weeks ago and bought it,  Drove it back to Michigan last week  We have been InTouch.   He saw Dave in his pink hat on Facebook.  Made a comment about he thought he had just bought that car.  I contacted him and we confirmed the car.  I sent him a copy of the write up I did on the mods when I traded it in.

Sorry, but we have someone in witness protection that can confirm that both of you have been seen at such an event.

I feel for you SlyBob.  My Dad has dementia.  Fortunately he remembers names, but he will forgot almost everything that is short term.  His memory of events past 20 years is incredible.   The mind is so weird.  Then there are times when he just latches onto something and won't let it go. 
I can confirm, it is very difficult. 

We got him into a good facility but man, that aint cheap.
