Freud, pay last respects to Ray for me when you are there.  I cannot get there.  He loved us, that is for sure.

i think we did a decent job of sending Ray off today. An awful lot of good humans showed up. Ray woulda been proud. Porkpie, you were well represented by friends.  wink  Wayno

Those few hours were well worth the trip. It tied the family together for us and

it felt comfortable. Good Landracing group also: Wes Potter, Tom Burkland and daughter,

Elmo, Treit and I, Jim Halladay, John Gowetski...........maybe one of the fellows will

complete the list.

But someone had driven his Camaro and put it away wet. He would have been WAY upset.

Pork Pie and Bo......you were part of us.  Barrett, where were you?

Gonna be hard to forget that man.

We stopped at Lands End. Nothing spectacular but the pucker brush

is all gone from the Bend in the Road to Lands End. Totally dry at

Lands End.

No knock out sunset that I could do for Ray.

FREUD,  It was nice to be able to spend time with his sisters, sons and their mother.
I will always remember the stories that they told. They knew Ray was happy and in control of his demons. He was at peace with the world. RIP my friend.

I failed to list Ellen Wilkinson and her husband Old What's His Name.  Someone help me.

If it's related to the Salt Flats they are always there to help.

That picture was done for the 200 MPH Club. They contribute to the banquet each year

and I make certain that we send them a foto of the members that were there.

Dan Warner delivered the check and is in the middle of the front row.

THANKS to the 200 MPH Club. They feel that the Bonneville NW Reunion is

one place where the 2 Clubs members get together. Pork Pie, you could do the

foto next year but it will have to be a delayed release shot so you can be in it.

That way it would still be a Canon Shot.
