    Emily and I are still in the discussion stage of the trip. No decision has 
been made yet.

      I take it from your silence on the subject that you will not be coming to 
Psycoblooie?

          I winched Murray on to his trailer yesterday and took him out to 
Wayout Salvage. Derrick and Danny inspected him carefully and kinda declared 
him DOA. We figured that we would have to, basically, cut off everything from 
under the roof to the B pillar, and were looking at $5K, pretty much as Will 
said. I looked at a '67 that I could gut completely and transfer all the 
mechanicals from Murray. Really, build a new bus that wouldn't be Murray.

          Interesting concept, at what point does a repair make him no longer 
Murray? The engine and running gear or the body?  Where is the soul of a bus?

          Anyway, as I was getting increasingly depressed, Derrick sent me to a 
guy in Berryville who has a reputation for pulling and straightening cars that 
are beyond saving. He looked at it and pronounced that he could fix this, but 
that it could take more than two day's work. I personally saw a notch that was 
really destroyed in an accident and that I thought had died, but was put back 
on the road. Now, I find that this was the guy that did it.

          So, I am to call him today and see if he can start on Murray tomorrow 
and I get to watch. Let's all cross our fingers and toes.

          PSYCOBLOOIE!!! Julie is, apparently, this year's dynamite jockey. She 
will be transporting the fireworks. Pray for her. Dan and Kat have finally 
confirmed that they will be here, probably Friday, stylin' in a 2008 Jetta to 
show us how the upper crust live. Brown Bus Mike is coming on Wednesday to take 
all the best spots. Steve and Sharon and Dennis and Claudia and maybe Mike say 
Friday, Paul and corn on Saturday. Where is Shirley? Somebody get to Shirley. 
Robb and his entourage have said "Maybe". If I have not mentioned any of you 
that are coming just chalk it up to my mental state.

          All you that are coming need to shame and cajole the ones who say no 
or on the fence. If you can't make it, we still love you, but you will forever 
be the Ones Who Weren't Here. And nobody wants that, do they? No.



          I've always considered the heart and sole of a VW to be in the said 
owner. Can you transfer the sole of a bus to a new owner when you have to let 
one go. I think not. That bus will always be in your heart. Murray will live 
again whether it be in it's original (yet slightly warped) sheet metal or will 
it's sole live in another body. Hmmm????
