I thought you pulled teeth for a living?

Oh, you've opened a flossing business for lazy rich people?

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

-------------- Original message -------------- From: "Denis Dodson" <coocoo@xxxxxxx> 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????
