When I made plans for this boat show in Oregon, a classmate of mine from 55 years ago, who lives in Olympia, WA, said he would like to come to it. We kept in touch, and yesterday, Garth Holmes, from the home town of my youth, came and spent part of the day with me. We had a wonderful visit. He bought me lunch, gave me two of his novels, and I took him for a boat ride. He said that was the first time he had been in a speed boat for 54 years. Garth was the Senior Class President, and we had not seen each other for 50 years until our 50th class reunion 6 years ago.
Thank you, Garth, for coming.

These two pictures are of my boat and my friends, Randy Reed and his daughter, Susanah.
Also my boat.
On Saturday we went on a parade around the South end of the lake, to show off our boats to the locals. Then early Sunday morning we went on a full throttle run to the North shore and moored on a sandy beach. It is a beautiful lake.
On Thursday, the 19th, I'm heading for Oregon for another boat show. My boat was/is not being judged at these shows. Just talking to the people and having fun.
