Jim & Barb Watson (20238)
Mid South Tri-State Directors (GA-AL-MS)
Well as this writing we have grounded ourselves from travel to take care of much needed maintenance. Jim got a new right knee on June 27th and is doing physical therapy on his lower back for nerve damage. When one approaches the 70’s your body starts to tell on you. Growing up in northern Montana on a cattle ranch makes you think you’re ten feet tall and bullet proof. The good book says treat your body as a temple, I thought it said amusement park. Oh well, others have a lot more serious issues to deal with so we can’t complain. We are so disappointed to miss the Budd’s Tennessee State Rally, and SkyMed’s Alaskan Cruise which we were all signed up to go.
We do plan to attend the International Rally in Sedalia, Missouri, and Region Five Rally in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We have ordered the trophies and prizes for the International Pet Contest for this year. Let’s get to work on our best trick or outfit for best dressed.
Thanks to Wayne & Carole Keith for co-hosting with us. Special guests were Gary & Wanda Smith, Region Five Directors, Evan & Debbie Hughes, Members at Large, Phil & Charlene Budd, Tennessee State Directors, and Michael Vreeland, Virginia State Director. Many thanks to the Henderson family and staff at Talona Ridge for a fantastic venue.
