Oh, I sort of had some pretty foggy times at Armadillo back in the late 60s. Sitting on the floor, and cans all around for ash trays that only few were using for cigarettes.

I still miss Austin; lived there from 68 to 89. Alas, when I go back for my yearly meeting (univ stuff), I just get depressed. It's waaaaay too big now.

HELLO FELLOW BALLOONIES!!

Work has had me absolutely slammed over the past few months - but I now have some things more under control - so the planning for this begins!! Lewster was here last weekend and that was my goal to start planning this since he is one of the planning committee members.

If you are even thinking about attending this great rally, let me know like yesterday - I'll be depositing everyones checks and sending the balloon folks money this week - they have been so nice in letting me keep this open, but we need to get this going - final payment will be due next month.

Looking forward to this!!

Ken J

Glad to hear things are on track. We were wondering when you would cash our deposit check. We're really looking forward to the Fiesta. Just tell us when to send the balance of the payment.

Any advice on where an Airstreamer can stay that can't stick around till the 7th?

Greets.

I'm going to the fiesta this year, but have to head out Sunday morning.

Any recommendations for other RV campsites around town?

I would check with the Fiesta. They have several different areas for RV's. The VIP area where we were last year was as good as it gets. You could walk to the field or just sit outside your trailer and watch as they floated over your head.

Rod and I will also plan to bring a couple of bottles of our homemade limoncello (an Italian lemon liqueur)

Gee,
If my check doesn't bounce, can I have another margarita...? Since the Flat Tire didn't disperse very well, last year(had to drink almost all of it myself), should I put myself through that particular difficulty, AGAIN...?(burp)...
Ken, we could come early and set up the unnecessary ballot box and the bribe station...but committeeing us would be just what the voices want us to think is the right thing, so we'd just rather do scut work, instead...
The generator works ok, the awning doesn't require Lew's mega-goosenecks(bought my own pair), and the doc at the ABQ ER told me I could blow my nose after a couple of months...maybe...without inflating my left eye like a ...well...balloon...
Will New Mexico require me to register my tiara, or can I just place my name in the registry at Dollar General?

Hmmm a bribe station - you may want to consider that - the competition is pretty intense....

Ah what do these country doctors know anyway....

Today I sent off the deposit to the balloon folks which means you all will feel a little lighter in your bank accounts as I've deposited all of your checks.

We have 29 trailers which is a very nice size rally - I promise a really great time.

There are four of us on the organizing committee this year and so stay tuned as we get this planned.

Similar to the Vintage Restoration Rally, we will keep in touch with everyone via e-mail with several newsletters leading up to the rally - so be on the watch for those.

Balloon on!!!

Ken J.
