Hey y'all,


Well, a couple months of preparation starts to pay off today with the
kickoff of SOS '07. In an hour or two, folks will start arriving, some from
quite a great distance. 


We'll break into teams, each assigned to a different task. One group will be
pulling springs out of the rear of Bud Pazur's Mr. White Bugeye. Another
group will be helping Kris Larsen do final assembly of his latest racecar
"Stapuff". I'd like to thank Kris for dropping off his trailer yesterday,
right in front of the shop door. Apparently Kris believes the Thicko shop
has everything. everything including a teleporter from Star Trek that
allowed me to dematerialize and rematerialize the camper and boat I needed
to roll out of the shop yesterday.


We'll probably have 2 teams doing deconstruction of the 7 Spridgets that
will become organ donors. The carcasses will resemble what's left of
yesterday's turkey after the bones have been picked clean, and will be
strapped to a trailer and towed over to the local scrap yard, where they'll
be crushed and turned into Chinese made bench vises at Harbor Freight before
you know it.


One more team will be laboring over our feature project, Mary Albrecht's MKI
Midget. It hasn't been on the road in 17 years. This is the car that she and
her late husband drove on their first date many years ago. It's our hope the
car leaves the Thicko shop under its own power tomorrow afternoon.


If you can't be here, we'll see you online in a couple of hours.
