    Our 50th Wedding Anniversary.

    We're off to the South Island of New Zealand in 10 days time. We've been to the North Island 4 times for the Art Deco Festival in Napier which was great. We're flying to Christchurch, stay the night,then we're hiring a car and drive through the centre to Queenstown. Then we're off to Invercargill, Balclutha, Dunedin, and back to Christchurch. We'll be there for 10 days and the weather should be around 20c-68f which we like.

    Chris.....From OZ.

        Thank you, I did send a message to Tom a couple of days ago but haven't had a reply yet. It would be good to catch up for a drink and a chat.

        Chris.

          I just left a message on Leonard & Deb's voice mail because they are very close friends with Tom and his Wife, and they often visit each other. Since Tom sold his Tbird he has been enjoying driving his old Classic Ford Truck, and probably has not been paying as much attention to the Forum as he used to. I have had the honor of doing the San Antonio tour with the four of them several years ago when they were visiting Leonard & Deb in their DFW area home. I left them a message to contact Tom quickly. They often talk back and forth between them.

            Happy Anniversary, safe travels, and godspeed, Chris. Sounds like a great and memorable getaway.
            I'm jealous of your 20C. Detroit temps reached 58f today but snow is still on the ground in spots. That's a heatwave for us in February. - Dave

              Thanks Dave, I know what it's like in your side of the woods weather wise, as I lived in Toronto Canada for 6years in the 70s. The 20c will be in NZ, our weather here is in the high 20s c.- 39c by this coming Monday.
              Thank you ones again and stay safe and warm.

              Chris.

                  I am very glad ya'll were able to get together with each other and work out the details of meeting It should be a veri enjoyable event. I know how much I have enjoyed their visit here, and also that of Bill Knighton from WA when they came through here to visit me. Those are special times for sure. For some 20years and about as many years ago, when I was the Leader of the Ham Radio Club SMIRK (Six Meter International Radio Klub) I was fortunate enough to have SMIRK members from Down Under, and other parts of the world visit me. In turn it allowed me to show them my city, downtown, the River Walk, Alamo, and the Spanish Missions. Those have been cherished memories for me also. At 87 I think I might be out of the downtown tour business! Enjoy the visit and take and post a lot of pix here! Safe travels!
