Yipeee!

I'm currently the 14th flight attendant of 14 F/A's on the "standby list" for duty as of midnight tonight (#1, then #2, etc. would be called...). I should be safe to head to the CoMo show in Columbia early in the morning! I'll double check any changes to my position on the list in the morning, but I'll bring my uniform and baggage just in case I'm called out (we usually get a 3 hour warning before any flight duty - and Columbia is about 2 hours away from Lambert Field).

So count... me... in! 7am for breakfast at the Waffle House (what exit?) in Wentzville.

Forgot this show was this weekend. Ended up going down to the parents lake house and doing some swimming and kayaking.

Yeah, great time! My first one of these shows. In case you didn't know, Dana cleaned up in the awards, as his beautiful Beetle pictured above took "Best Paint" and then "Best of Show"!!! Bummer for that "eye-lashed" and lobbying Beetle. Well-deserved Dana! Then Dana, myself, Sara and Ted and their pooch drove our old VWs into the college district for some dinner/brews at a great place! Then we calmly puttered home to STL in a 3 VW caravan.

We were very bummed to see that the two-tone Westy was being loaded onto a flatbed tow truck right near the I-70/I-61 interchange in Wentzville. We knew you were already being helped and therefore continued on. What the hell happened? I hope it's only a minor snafu, but we can't wait to hear about their mis-adventure... may it pass quickly!

Thanks again to Tom and the CoMo club gang and to the folks at the Machens VW dealership in Columbia for hosting a very nice all-VW show. Weather was even very nice, although a bit hot! Well worth the drive. Final remarks from me:

SHAME on all those owners of perfectly nice-looking VWs being trailered or flat-towed to/from the show!!! "Grow a pair" and drive them already!

Bill,

Is that 50's convertible the early metallic blue flake you were talking about? Meant to ask you while we were at the show after I saw it and forgot

Nice simple Saturday cruise and show. It was a good time.

We all started the day with some awesome Waffle House breakfast.

And set off on a nice lil ride down 70.

I got to check out Dana's sweet '61 ragtop ass.

Machens put out a lot of great effort.
Gave free t-shirts and grab bag of goodies.
Along w breakfast and lunch!

Glad you STL folks had a nice time.
I was worn out from chasing Caroline around in the sun...I felt cooked!

Glad ya'll found Tellers it is a good spot.Nice veiws of Como's finest & looks like you could see your rides out the window


We ate dinner just next door that night with Russ&Jody, Cully& Amy @ Broadway Brewery. ..then proceeded to indulge in many,many more brews around town.


Next time I would like to have more of an after the show get together planned for folks. Cruise to some good beverage spots , have a cookout, or something like that.
