It is sad that such an event is talked up to the point that everyone's normal life planning gets turned upside down. I hope I'm right with my prediction that this is an extreme over reaction by everyone based on way too much media hype. The "flu' ,as we all know it, kills a whole lot of people each year. I'm doing things right now that I have never done in my life. I have never used hand sanitizer until now. I have washed my hands frequently and try to have good clean habits (for most things) Just stay well and mindful of what things in public that you ae touching. It is a real disappointment that we will not be meeting in a month but I understand !

BTW, a big thanks to the Grigg family and other Stovebolt members for their efforts to host Homecoming this year! It will not go unappreciated - - as next year's will be twice as good!
Thank again.

Thank you Victor for mentioning that. I have been meaning to log on and add my thanks since yesterday.
Even though we were still a month out, I'm sure the planning and prep by the Mullins had already begun. I've held a few much smaller events at our house and have a little bit of an idea of how much work it is. So a huge Thank You to the Mullin Family.

I'm not panicking. I have several of the illnesses that they say will take you out of here if you contract this illness. It's popping up all over North Carolina now, not yet up here in the Blue Ridge, but it will most likely do so eventually. We're headed up to our home in the wilds of Maine about a month early this year. I have plenty of food and ammo. I got a freezer up there filled with deer and moose, trout and salmon-plus a few pounds of scallops. Only house I can see is in Canada across the bay. The best news? One of Maine's only two remaining paper mill is the next town over-there main product? Toilet paper and it is always available locally. I'm sorry I didn't get to see you guys this year. I was of the misunderstanding that you had to be a Virginian to attend. I live three miles from Virginia and my VFW Post is over there. I was straightened out by a kind fella on this forum, See you next year.

Ran the dog today and then went and had a cold one at the local Amvets post in Mokane Mo.
Talked to a couple older guys I have not seen in a while. Mokane had a population of 185 in 2010.
But it does have two bars! If there is an emergency on a Saturday afternoon, Car wreck or Fire.
It cleans out the bar of most of the customers, they are all on the Voluntary Fire Dept!

And, I also would like to thank the Grigg's and Cindy for trying to host this event again!!!
I know it is a lot of work and worry!

Hopefully the KC Reunion will not be canceled!
Maybe some of the ODSS rowdies can make the trip to the Midwest this next September!

Guess I'll have time now to mount that new winch on the trailer.
Then haul a 2-Ton across southern Missouri when it dries out some.

As always - Homecoming has a special place in my heart. The men, the machines and the pictures. Maybe I'll make a "best of" album now that I got an old hard drive to turn again. I never had that problem with film negatives........Stay safe men, best to the Mullen family and thanks for the thought of hosting. Stay safe Stovebolt family.

I’m gonna try to talk Alvin Chipmunk Parris to meet with me for a mini-homecoming.
Trucks, wrenching, coffee, stories, good food.
Can someone share that recipe for huevos rancheros?

Amtrak,

Looks like I’m coming to PA to pick up an engine at the end of June.
