    I'd be packing to go to Bowling Green in the morning, but maybe it will still happen in August. I already really miss the Frog Follies. Been every year since '82 with my '34.

    Come live in PA and you must Bow to the King here Wolf. He has desimated this state and the Republicans finally had enough and are now pursuing his color coded shutdown here in court. Believe it starts next week. Word is he flocked to FL to his second home and his brothers during the shutdown here and let us suffer while the King wasn't even in the state! He speaks to no one, has no confreres with other house or senate personnel then interprets everything thru a trans man to woman on TV health dept. that we found out whatever it is now a man or woman background is nothing but a pediatrician. No credentials or anything in diseases or pandemics. Yeah, it has its citizens here in PA in a uproar and we can do nothing about it. He had health Dept. attack/come after a diner here in York a few months ago also for opening up. I don't know current situation or outcome on that one, citizens are starting to fight back here.

    Columbus, NE Memorial Day weekend, this weekend Fathers Day would have been Ord, NE. I have missed a few at Columbus, and only 1 in Ord, this would have been year 46 in Columbus, and year 45 in Ord. I was planning to go to Salina again but will stay home, I don’t worry about car people, but with the amount of spectators there it worries me. If things open up here we will go to some different local shows then go back to larger shows next year.

    I've been to the first 4 trifive nationals, couldn't get time off for the 5th last year. This year I had the week of off, booked a suite and now the 6th nationals are cancelled. I'll try to make the out-a-sight drags in Union Grove Wi. on the 27th. Every thing else I can live without.

    I and my best friend would be headed out about noon tomorrow to stay with another friend in the burbs, and be around Back to the Fifties until we came back Monday. Big kick in the crotch for it to be cancelled. And I haven't finished my car, which is just about done, because my mood and motivation have suffered, I am "essential" so I did not have boring days to mess with it or anything. But I have pulled all-nighters to be ready for an event, and that fire isn't burning anymore...

    Missed going to Back to the 50's, all our local small town events cancelled out, the season is pretty slim this summer and so far with the best weather here in years.

    One of our local popular cruise night venues was hit with a $10,000 fine yesterday. There were well over 300 people there most without face masks . This particular venue started with only classics and hot rods but has been over run by off topic ( cars ) , bikes , and every day crap cars forcing our on topic cars to be turned away so I don’t feel bad for them.

    After 35 years the annual Hot August Nights in Reno Nevada has been cancelled. This is a 10 day car event. Vehicles from all over the north american continent and a few street rods from Europe meet at this cool venue. Well there will be next year !

    Yes, the Wexford Starlite.. The church got a new pastor and he sold part of the parking lot to Chick fil a... He pulled the plug on this cruise. They used to get 1000 to 3500 cars every week.. It was one of the biggest weekly car cruises in this country.. People cam all the way from Canada and Mexico to attend..

    I think next year we will appreciate more the shows we normally attend and took for granted.
