I lost your phone number. 
Please send it in an email. I also have misplaced your new email...send it all to me, then skip the calling.
 
We will be at the Petro's at the 299 in AL about 8 am Friday.

Al, I had a really terrific hot dog at the Petro on I-65 at exit 86 in Kentucky on the way down to Nashville last year. We didn't get into the Iron Skillet there, though. Unfortunately, the only Petro truck stops in Ohio are too far away for a chicken fried steak run. I sure wish the Flying Js were still operating real restaurants.

After twelve years of hard use, today our hot water heater decided to retire. Service man is on the way. We will have this fixed before Queen Anne steps off of her Limo (Greyhound) Wed. Evening !!!
Couldn't have happened at a better time !!! It is the pilot light valve...not the water or plumbing, so hopfully the gas company can get it fixed.

Saturday I had to re-light the pilot light. I had just taken a cold shower. It seems I have been having to relight it every few weeks. Are we caught in "Revenge of the Water Heaters"?

We have had some gusty winds today...30-40 mph, thats enough to do in the pilot in the water heater. Manually lighting it is a chore, but we've done it many times over the years.  This time it doesn't light at all.
Gas company came and went...Plumber is on the way.  Not a big worry, but a diversion !

They didn't have Smithwicks. I ended up with a bottled Guiness Black lager. lleechef had a Newcastle Brown Ale on tap. My burger was somewhat acceptable. She liked her little wings. We are  not likely to return.

The Launch hour is fast approaching. We are really looking forward to Anne's arrival wed evening.  Then Thursday she and I will lunch at Hubers Family  Farm Restaurant, and bring home doggie bags for Mrs Mayor.  Nap til 2 am or so and on the road by 3 AM. we gain an hour as we cross KY, so the total driving time should run about 12 hours.
  Yeah... I love it when a plan comes together.

I also bring heat waves out west....... as evidenced by past trips to LA (twice) Boise, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Tucson, Portland and Seattle.
 
 
BTW, not sure where you see snow, but it's nowhere near where I'm heading.

I will have to do some music tonight before I get to sleep for my early morning flight. Grateful Dead's "Alabama Getaway"and Jimmy Buffet's  "Stars Fell Over Alabama" seem to be good choices. Any other ideas for official music for the Meeting?

I realize this is off-topic,  but the plumbers arrived at 1:15 this afternoon, and in less than an hour had removed the old and installed a new hot water heater, ran their tests, adjusted the thermostat, took their check and were gone.  We now have hot water working just fine....we had visions of driving to Alabama, just to get a shower !!!  I am more than pleased with this guys service.
 
Now, Come On Anne, we're ready to get this show on the road.

Ouch! I had to replace my water heater about four years ago. It had developed a leak. As I recall it cost around $300 for the new water heater and installation and removal of the old one. But I have the only plumber in America who isn't trying to pay off his yacht.

Roz and I regret that we will not attend this years Glee club event in Mobile.  As far as my health is concerned, I am much better and finally on a solid diet.  Something I have not been able to do for almost two weeks.  Regardless, I feel that I am not up to a 1200 mile round trip and enjoying the fine treats that Mobile offers and in addition enjoying the company of folks that I have known for many years.
 
I appreciate the efforts that Al has demonstrated not only this event but many others.  Roz and I will miss your company and we sincerely hope that you put the oyster industry on the night shift.

Thanks all Roadfooders for the wishes.  No one regrets more than Roz and myself about missing one of the key events of the year.  Al, Poverty, Bushie and myself were the originators of the events many years ago.  This will be only the second one I have missed.
 
Mike Shell even volunteered to stop by in Knoxville to pick up Roz since I had a Priceline guarantee in Mobile so she could take advantage of that.  For that we really thank Mike but Roz felt reluctant to go without me.  I am not sure why because Poverty and Mike would have made great company" />
 
Please enjoy the oysters and BBQ and Roz and I will wear our ugly Hawaii shirts on Saturday night and raise our cocktails in salute to our friends in Mobile.
