    ^^^^^Don’t be so sure you have never met any of us Kim. Bugatti’s was a pretty common stop for me back in that time frame !

    Yep. World’s a small place. Only seven people removed from knowing someone anywhere on the planet I’ve been told.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Hey Alykat…that would be pretty wild if we have met.

    It sure was a place to party ,party ,party.Some great music from Jimmy Ibbotson and Jeff Hanna.And where else could you sit and drink “below the waterline’. Casey was so good to work for and Jack Coffee’s kitchen produced some of the best food i’ve eaten.

    We lived just near to the Glory Hole Park next to another aussie,Paul Harris,who worked at the Charthouse.We also worked mornings at the Blue Star Lodge ,where the owner ,Bruce, had a 23 window out the back , buried in the snow. I’ve often wondered what happened to that bus.

    Spent many a night at the Chart House as well.Β  Β ^^Β  Just wondering if you were at Bugatti’s the night Bobby Mason was on stage, had a few too many during the breaks, and fell off his stool singing and playing all the way to the floor ? Good times.

    Enjoy in large doses John…..the retirement I mean ,not the noodles.And thanks for listening to and putting up with us old timers.

    ’twas a simple life.Pre personal computers,mobile phones,the net, FB and EVs.Back when you wrote a postcard to friends and made a ‘call collect’ phone call to your parents ,from a phone box ,when you were in the shit for money in some far flung destination and used a road map.

    On the subject of retiring .I thought that’s what you were doing with that grooving tool for 1131.

    Let’s make that track a solid plan!!!! Bubba and I are itching to head over there, how’s about getting something together in your head then after KOH and surgery you can spend some rehab time directing our labor and pointing at shit you want moved!!! Get together something that works and just keep dialing it in!!! Rebuilding classic race courses sounds incredibly nerdy and kinda cool!πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Put all my crap over in my new lot.Β  Β Build a mini Crandon!!!!!!Β  😎  That would be too cool… 😎  Have that track burned into my head!! 😎 I think I have too much stuff… Maybe I start selling stuff on samba!!Β  Get rid of a lot of extra shit?

    Instead of saying there was a an unfortunate turn of events that lead to my retirement… I am going to say my 5th spine surgery brought that on!!! 😎  I have my pre-op this morning..Β  laminectomy at L2..Β  Level above my fusion..

    I was simply lead to the decision by multiple events.. 😎  😎 😎

    Β  That is a single lot… Next door is three lots.. 😎

    There is already like 6 VW’s over there.. 😎  I say we try and get anything fixable over there.. Clean up and cut up and junk the rest..Β  Organize my sheet metal pile and sell some shit… 😎  I dunno about moving the big ass semi trailers though… Maybe put em on the outsides like walls around the Lot? 😎

    The convex could be a sweet drivers stand… 😎

    Looking forward to the next few months of simplifying my life to the next level of simple… 😎  😎  😎  Letting my account settle down from all the money this place WAS spending!!Β  and just piddle around and do me.. ME!!!Β  ME!!!!!!Β  😎 😎 😎

    So John, before you do anything radical, you and I should sit down and talk. Get through KOH, get the surgery, and I’ll come down and tell you about a thought or two I have.
