Smile Rivette Rush sounds great!!

Sharon, I am glad you could set this up, really it works out so nice for us as we can be at home with the little guy and have fun with adults too!!
Thank you!!

I am so excited that Vickie is coming with her whole family too!!

Carol I have a room ready for you if you decide to stay you are more than welcome! You can relax and have some adult beverages with us without worrying about the drive home!!

The museum is nice and its got some lovely architectural features--a live tree in the center of the building. If there's interest, we can take as much or as little time going through it as anyone wishes. Free parking on weekends. The gift shop is awesome!! Dave likes to keep me outta there!!

Rivette Rush, that's perfect. Yup, you and Peter have some hussling to do, that's for sure! We'll be waiting to hear all about your winter expedition. Those people under their awnings sipping those iced drinks don't know what they are missing! Nothing like snow up to your tutu and all that cold metal and exposure to the wind and cold.

Maybe Rivette Rush as in rush week at a sorority, official initiation, secret pinky shakes (now there's one for the mixologist) and hazing, actually I think the "haze" would be experienced the morning after the pinky shakes. Might have to take Steph up on her kind offer!

Hi G

Leaving real early Thursday Morning - dreading the drive across the top of Toronto - counting on the worst of rush hour being over around 8:30-9:00 on the western side anyway - but I think we will take the 407 A little less traveled but the quality of the road is so much better than many parts of the 401 - worth the "toll".

Thanks for the VIBES G

One day we hope we will get into your neck of the woods

Omg!

Hey girls,

It looks like everyone has chimed in here but me. I had some shopping to do. Yes, there were a few things in there for us. I'm so excited as well. Sharon, you and Peter be sure and keep it between the ditches while hanging on tight! We'll get the party started for you!

Steph, thank you so much for offering us a place to let our hair down. You're going to a lot of trouble for us and we appreciate it.

Carol, so glad to hear you are giving some consideration to staying over. I sure hope that Bradley reconsiders. Jeff, Dave, and Peter are going to be out-numbered.

I am certainly looking forward to meeting everyone and as always getting to see Carol again. Cabin-fever has set in big time. It's time to make some new adventures.

It's less than a week...

Vickie

Yes - I am sorry - takes me a little longer than some folk sometimes - it just sunk in that Vickie is heading that way too.....then who left to go to Florida oh yes that was Jamie right?? or is it Sue and Ike - gosh I can't keep anything straight....

It has been that much just to keep Steph and Carol in the right order. And the only reason I can do that is cause I have a pic of Carol in her PJ's and Steph posing as Rosie. But I am lost as to the mystery woman that was with you - again remind me - was that you Vickie???

The Museum sounds really cool - love to go if that is the thing - I can bring the rope so we don't get lost.

Carol - I know what we can do for initiation - how about the old tongue to metal test I just had a picture of the four of us all stuck to the 63 Globe Trotter outside the Comfort Inn in Okesmos MI..

Yes Carol do stay - come-onnnnn pllllleeeasse - I'd let you stay in my room tee hee - no way girl - "Sharon" are you nutz you got a guy with ya.... oh yes silly me....

So Vickie - who is your "whole" family????

Wish we were bringin our Dogs with us - they don't get left behind on too many trips - but now we have three it is a bit much - and Mom hates to see the Lucky Boy left without his Girlfriend Haily. But then Men they ain't fussy now are they - see He'll cuddle with Taz too..... PS can I bring them to the Rally in the summer???? Boy look at those sleepy eyes - making me want a nap!

Sharon,

It is Sue and Ike that is going to Gulf Shores. Me, I just sitting here watching snow, snow, snow. I wish I was going somewhere warmer. No such luck this year.

Actually my whole family will not be coming. Our son Eric will have to stay home. He will have to work, I'm sure. So it will Jeff (husband), Danielle (daughter), and myself. I'll send you a picture of all us in an email. What about a picture of you and Peter?

I can't wait to see your new home on wheels.

Vickie

C'mon Vickie post your Xmas picture it even has Barney in it.

Jamie has gone solo over to Sarasota to stay at a friend's condo. Perhaps she will check back and rub it in that she is living in the life of sunshine and luxury.

G. I wish we had had more time at Top Sails to visit, we will have to continue in Ohio in June.

Suz and Ike are already gone on their Roamin Holiday?

I love that picture. Barney in a santa hat too! And now you have me started.

Vickie is such a great driver that she can even talk Jeff through it driving blind. hehe

Looks like today is picture day!

Oh Carol,

Now you have gone and done it! You better watch out next Saturday night!!! You are such a prankster.

This was such fun! I wished I looked like I was having more fun! It was golf cart races at River Ridge Resort. The driver was blindfolded and the passenger had to navigate the driver through the course. It was a blast!!!

Thanks Carol. I haven't seen any of the pictures from that event.

Vickie

I just love all these pictures, that blindfolded driver thing looks like it was lots of fun Vickie! When we have the rush we'll have to line up and do the Rosie pose!!

Carol, Dave was hoping Bradley would come too(safety in numbers?) he said this is a rivette function right? I said yeah, so he says, "do us guys have to sit in another room?"

I said, "I have to ask my sisters"

Talking Count down!!

Can't wait to meet everyone!!


Sharon will we be able to peek at the new Moonbeam?
We've dug a path to our trailer in case you want to take a gander at the Airstream and our progress.
Nancy, sorry to hear you can't make it this weekend, hoping to meet you again real soon (I think we met at LPPI in August didn't we?)
Jamie I wish we could beam you over Star Trek style, probably be too much of a shock to your system to come suddenly to MI from FL....We'll be sure to toast all the rivettes and think of you all!

Gee thanks, Tin Sista, for thinking of me. I wish I could be there too. I've done the Boston to SW Ohio trip (950miles) non-stop before and, believe me, it does feel like you just went through a transporter.

Ladies, my "We Can Tow It!" t-shirt sample was delivered while I was in Florida and the design worked great!! I had it done in an 8" width on the front of a white T. Today I gave it a laundry test and it came out A-O-K. How do you want me to proceed? Did we want to set it up with CafePress? Anybody done it before? Is it a simple process that even I can figure out?

-Jamie

Smile Great news Jamie...good food for thought.

Thanks so much Jamie, Carol, and Sharon for all the logo work, and Jamie for the tshirt testing!!

Cafepress, looks interesting, I noticed the customize feature is under create your own on the front page of the website. I just walked through it using a short sleeved dark t shirt (just to see the contrast) and it showed an 8" image on it. Then you can select ready to buy, and it looks like $24.99. Of course you can choose a long sleeved shirt, a hoodie, etc.
What do you all think? If we wanted to do this more as a rally themed shop, there is a spot to design and sell it in case others don't want to walk through all of the design and choosing stuff. I think that one of the other rallies did the preselected items in a storefront, this way a rally attendee could just pick a shirt color and size, for example without dealing with uploading files, etc.
What does everyone think of the prices/etc?
