    Anybody heard from our ‘Dover Rover’ historian yet? Pat D. was the last one mentioning
    him. Is he settled in Po-town, and working on his Firebird with his son Edward,maybe to
    run the ‘Valley’ this year?……Pete.

    THANKS Pat, NO idea,what Brian is up to??? Talk about ‘Spring’ weather. other than the woods, 95% of snow
    s gone off my lawn,with that 70 degree weather, we had the other day perfect for a little ‘honey-do’
    yard work! It felt ‘good’ to get ‘outside’ for a change!
    And ‘the icing on the cake’, got my 2020 ‘Valley’ schedule today!!! Now I can’t wait, for RHINEBECK, in May!!!
    Pete.

    A ‘little’ surprise for me yesterday morning! Just before seven a.m. I had an ‘earthquake’ come
    through! On the rickter scale a 3.1 ! My first one ever,to experience…..”COOL”!!!
    It felt like a AA/Gasser at the ‘Valley’, starting up,and vibrations in the ground,20 ft. away!

    I’m sure Ricky White who lives near me, might have felt it also (?)…….Pete.

    Hey Babycakes I didn’t feel a thing, maybe because I’m 1500 miles south. Everyone was calling me about the quake. Checked cameras in house and garage nothing feel off the walls. Cars still up on lifts.

    ‘GREAT’ NEWS Ricky!!! Yeah, the only damage that they showed on our local news,
    was a ‘Brewery’, in South Glens Falls, had some bottles rattled around a bit.
    The sound and the vibration it created,was like watching the fireworks, in
    Lake George ‘Village’,going off!
    Have a ‘good’ vacation,while your away Ricky!!!…..Pete.

    Thank you for the offer Kman we are down with fifth wheel trailer. Been camping in state parks right on beaches. Heading back tomorrow as Fla parks are closing. My biggest fear, is if this gets worst they may restrict travel, With my luck Emperor Cuomo will close NYS. Enjoy your stay. Looking forward to Cruising Ocean City MD in May hope that doesn’t get cancelled

    I just got wind that the annual Lake George ‘Adirondak Car Show, is refunding all prepaid
    tickets to the show, in Sept.!!! SERIOUSLY!!!! Is this really necessary? Come on! It’s
    in September, not in the next few months!!!
    What next? The Americade, which brings in millions of dollars annually to this area!!!
    YES! I know this is ‘serious’,……but!!!……..Pete.

    It is bad and nothing like any of us have seen. Instead of bitching and moaning follow the recommendations about social distancing, wipe all objects and calm down. Cakes a car show is just that, they have made money previously and will again. When you start seeing people you know die from this virus you might rethink your temporary inconvenience. My family and I are in the “underlying medical conditions” category I’m not taking any chances, unleast not until I finish my 57 Chevy. Safe trip Rick and Kman.

    Personally, I’ll say it ‘again’ so as not to be offensive to some! YES! This is “SERIOUS”,quote and unquote!
    I’m really trying hard to understand why the Adirondak Car Show, in Sept. was canceled so soon? Maybe that
    will change? “PRIORITY” now…this coronavirus to conquer!!!!!!
    I just got an e mail from V Bob, Rhinebeck Annual Show in May, is canceled,and this will be the ‘1st.’ for
    me,since it started…..but well ‘understand’the reasoning,for ‘health’issues, we may encounter there.
    I’m sure the ‘Valley’s’Swap Meet,will follow suit,also,next month.
    For sure it’s hurting ‘all’ sorts of business’s, big or small,and canceling sports events,ect. and only hope
    and pray, things will get back to ‘normal’for all of us, once again!!!
    Meanwhile,follow the professional ‘medical’ advise and proceedures, till this ‘Health Storm’ is captured !!!
    Again…..just ‘my’ 2 cents worth…….Pete.

    Besides ‘cabin fever’ and watching the government’s restrictions, along with how there
    doing, world wide,to find a cure for the virus, how ya holding up with your family,
    through all of this? A ‘whole new ball game’ for me, to adapt to,and try my best!!!
    KEEP THE ‘FAITH’ !!!!……Pete.
