Fast forward to the end of May when back burner items had mainly been forgotten in the chaos of the server changeover, a hail storm, standard website nightmares, the St. Louis Meet, and little things like breathing. Fortunately a topic was posted on the Q & A which jolted my selective memory, and I fired off a quick email to Don Fenton who is my contact at DAPA. His quick response put me at ease, and despite my lapse things were right on track. While there had been a couple of candidates to co pilot the van it worked out that this trip I'd be going solo. I had mixed feelings, but if nothing else I knew I'd like the music.

Where were the roses? I had plenty of smelling time.
