Summer Outlook

• CATEGORIES: Features

My family spent the weekend celebrating Dad. Friends and family gathered together on Saturday afternoon to hear my overview of Dad and share stories about him. I think Dad would have enjoyed the laughter and lovely memories shared by all. Here’s the front of Dad’s flyer.


With that final event passed, life should return to normal, at least until mom decides she wants to move.

We don’t foresee many trips this summer, except a few couple-day drives, so I hope to get some good work done. We will also be spending the summer looking around to see where we want to land when we buy a house (assuming everything goes according to plan).

Finally, if anyone has any interest in Rusty, the 1956 DJ-3A that’s been partly restored, drop me an email. I don’t see any way I’ll be getting to Rusty anytime soon (Biscuit will be the first project I tackle once I have a garage again). So, I’d like to find a home where someone can use it. Here’s Rusty’s rebuild thread:

    Fitting celebration of life for your dad.

    Looks like you put together a really nice tribute to your father. Take a break…… Find a great place to call home (with a great garage !)……we will still all be here.

    Dave, very nice tribute to your dad. If you ever get back east again (Carlisle Pa.) especially–please let me know. We’ll hit my favorite spot for breakfast again. Bill Garland
