NEW ORLEANS WELCOMES THRILLER -DEREK IS DOWN FROM WINNIPEG

Recommended Posts

We had a really enjoyable visit this evening when Derek, along with his delightful wife and daughter joined us for dinner and a quick tour of the French Quarter - an all too short visit. Delightful folks, we look forward to more visits. Mardi Gras and Basketball tournaments are over as of a couple of days ago, making for a busy time here in New Orleans, -

but there is always time for Old Car Friends and Buick Folks.

 

Thanks for the visit,

 

Marty & Dale

 Derick and his family are excellent folks.

 

X2 on DD's comment.  Those who were at the last Forum Breakfast ( Allentown) may remember that all five members  of the Thille family attended, and each one sat at a different table just so that they could all meet more of the attendees.  I thought that was so cool that they put themselves out there like that!   What great people!

While our daytime highs were only in the 60s (F), it is a nice change from what they left at home in Winnipeg.

 

Oysters, local brew, Bananas Foster, local fare, and Buick conversation - how could you top that?

Thanks so much Marty! It was great to meet you and your lovely southern belle. Your hospitality was above and beyond. This man put a number of miles on his SUV driving us around. It was a new experience for us with oysters and the city. Car guys really are the best. 

 

We got enough of a taste of the Big Easy that we are certainly interested in a return trip. We did do a bit of walking around the French Quarter and got a few souvenirs. The convention was great and should lead to an income increase that will allow us to travel as we desire...love it.

I agree that Marty and his wife are the best hosts.  They gave us a tour when we were in N.O. a few years ago.  First class.

Aw shucks fellers, you'll make us blush.

 

Seriously, we DO enjoy meeting FORUM FOLK, both those who visit New Orleans, as well as when we travel - and we will be doing a lot of driving.

 

This year we expect to drive to every AACA Meet and Tour. Philly and Ocala were excellent. Next on the list we will drive to Palm Springs, CA, and a month later will tour Sonoma. The AACA calendar will be our primary guide, only interrupted by doctor visits as we age faster than our cars.

 

Looking forward to meeting more of you "On the Road"

I'd say we age at the same rate as our cars - one day at a time. Depending on conditions, we may deteriorate faster at times though.
