Well it is another chilly day today but spirits are warm. Here in a little while I will be heading off to see my friends at the Lake of the Ozarks. Things have been hectic lately so I aplologize for not getting more into the blog. This weekend will find us very busy tomorrow night Joy and I will head off to Southern Illinois to take part in a poker run that leaves Steve's Customs on Hwy 37 outside Johnston City, on Saturday. We will hang out there for a while before loading up and heading back to the city so we can be at the Thunder Alley Swap Meet on Sunday. There are some other things going on as well this weekend. The Moonshine Lunch Run is on Saturday this is very cool and if you get to the General store in Moonshine, IL, which is close to Effingham, by one you get one of the best burgers around. Sunday there are two poker rides that I like the Paderborn rat Pack is having their Annual ride. It will leave from Karban's Knotty Pine in Paderborn, IL this is a big run and usually tons of fun. FORR Local 42 is also holding a Poker Run for the hartbauer/McBride Foundation. Then there is also the USO Benefit Run from Jack's Iron Horse and many other events as well make sure to have fun this weekend and hopefully the eather gods will relent on us a little and we'll have some decent rays for a change. Once again weather hindered the BAR Ride but I am betting right now that next Wednesday will be nice and the Ride will take off.
