Just an update on bud and nancy, did the lawn last sunday, they are doing fine, but I do believe they would like to hear from some of you folks. Just got of the phone with Bud, we are gonna build him an overhang for his washer and dryer outside tomorrow. All is well, but as bud said, and I quote.......Guess everyone forgot about me. Quote friggin Unquote. Folks, can we not forget about bud and all he did and all y'all did for him. For gods sake, pick up the phone, say hello, write a letter, something of that sort. I don't mind being what I have always been to bud, a neighbor that takes care of his yard and sits on the front porch and talks, but I think he would love hearing from the folks that made it happen and that would be you.

Okay, Nuff said. I am gonna get swampcritter riled up about this so y'all stay in touch with bud. Hell, call him up, invite Yourselves out for a weekend at his camp. Lord knows he, and you need it. Great people are hard to find, don't lose this one.

Done Preaching,

Ken

For all you guys in the AAoF! Come on now ..... the man is a life member of your club! I'm 362 miles away and I talked to him this afternoon. WTF ?

If they need something we'll make it happen, but we gotta know first.

Thanks Guys, I love you all, especially for letting me take part in the ride, which, if you folks have not seen, get a copy of Marshrider magazine, Nancy gave me a copy today, there is a HUGE frigging, well written story on the ride and the flight.

I just want everyone here to remember how excited you were to find bud and band together to get his boat build taken care of, another group effort, , get him recognized and raise the funds for him and nancy, and.... the warm fuzzy each and every one of you got when it all came together at the ride. REMEMBER? I do. Damn near cried. Falls onto the list of one of the best days of my life.

Had quite the exciting day, we built a shed for his laundry room,,,,,by the way, today is my birthday, yup., I am 20 yet again. Since I never go to my job on my birthday, decided to work with bud to get this laundry room thing done and thanks to buds supervision, it came out just fine. Nancy made a big deal of the Marshrider article, and yes, I have two pics there. Please don't hate me because I am beautiful. (joke, please,,,,,,joke)

Anyway folks, it would be nice to find a way to keep bud in some way in the forefront of Southernairboat.com. Pretty much everyone here has risen above the call of duty, lets keep it that way.

Always proud to post here, you guys are the greatest.

(and I build a mean shed, thank god for air nailers and screw guns. (no duct tape needed)
