Thanks to all the members that played and I think it was a lot of fun, and if I don't bounce back I wish someone would take over where I left off.....Thanks, again.......
It was with a very sad heart today that I went to the Newport Rhode Island Post Office, and sent off the latest of what I hope we will forever know as the "Bud Boxes".56 57 said:Thanks guys, I called in Hospice today and they are taking care of me, sure hope some of the members carry on with the boxes.....
I had hoped Bud would be here to enjoy knowing that his tradition would continue, but I guess it's fitting that this one goes out today, in his absence. It is my hope that at any given time, someone somewhere has a Bud Box making its way around the country. As this one nears its end, I will ask for volunteers to receive the next one. And any member is welcome to pick up the torch, whenever they wish.
Bud will not be forgotten for his generous ways.
This box today is on its way to New Jersey, to new member Jersey 93 Ty. From there, it's off to SSChevyman in North Carolina, Chevy1957 in Florida, then up to Tennessee for a visit with 69Stang. Ward will send it off to MissouriMike, who will forward it to Joe Falco in Texas. From there, it's off to Rlyoung in California, and then on to New York to Mudslinger, before heading back to me.
I had originally enclosed a note asking members to please get the package on to the next member as soon as possible, because of the circumstances. At this point however, I would feel it a tribute to Bud to hold onto it for just a bit, if you want to share the experience with any other HT members in your area.
Bud would have wanted that.
