With Shari O'Brien's help we were able to raise $837.00

Departing Decatur AL, 5:21 am.
That departure time would normally have gotten
us to the NCM a few minutes before 8:00 am,
beating the Nashville rush hour nightmare. Key word: normally. This time I-65
became a parking lot 22 miles south. The detour was 23 miles longer, with the last half stop & go. Arrival at the
museum was 50 minutes late!
On a lighter front, as I was setting up in the
lobby, I had the pleasure of witnessing Sheriff Joe Jakub put the cuffs on Jake
in anticipation of his karaoke performance all weekend, right behind my table.
That Corvette with the wild paint job outside is Joe's DARE Corvette cruiser!
A great spot - between the entrance and the

Friday April 25
A familiar number... 8 years later:
In 2006, the last day with the '97, at the
National Corvette Museum
Now, at the NCM.
To be honest, I only fudged this slightly: As I approached the
turn into Corvette Drive that morning I noticed that I would be about 3 miles
short of the goal,
so I continued straight and looped around to come in Corvette Drive from the
other direction. The odometer turned to this reading about 50' from the parking
on a table in the Corvette Cafe.

placed at the Bash in 2000, and its location.
Valerie Aiello signs the hood for her $25
donation to the American Cancer Society.
Sorry, no pics from the
banquet - too busy selling 50/50 tickets.
Shari's help, we ended up with a pot of $1625.00! The winner received $813.00
and I bundled the remaining $812.00 with the $25 from Valerie's hood signature
to send the American Cancer Society's Bowling Green office
a total of $837.00.

Back home stats.
that AFE is the worst ever recorded in this car, thanks to the Gridlock
Nashville that cost 50 minutes
and 23 miles over the normal 2h40m travel time Northbound and 35 minutes and 12
more miles Southbound!
