[tcb] Re: Murray update and PSYCOBLOOIE!

Chuck seems like a nice guy, but I am not sure I trust a man with enough 
pyrotechnics to level a city block.  

As for the string pulling. I don't really pull teeth for a living, I save them. 
 As with buses, original is the best but sometimes they need repair and 
sometimes they have seen better days.  

Hope to make it to Psyc oblooie to see everyone, and enjoy some fireworks and 
corn.

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????
