K-Club.....New Attendance Record

We are pleased to announce that we broke yet another attendance record at K-Club this morning.  As you can see, we filled all 20 of our regular seats and for the first time ever, we spilled into the overflow area.  Don’t worry too much about Bo and Tony sitting by themselves…………..we move around a lot and their solitude did not last very long.

We were honored to have grandson Rian Rassette join us for his very first time at K-Club.

Wings Over Harnett Airshow

Below are a few pictures and video from the Air/Car Show this past weekend in Erwin, NC.  They had a great turn out, lots of people showed and a good number of planes flew in.  Great weather, with blue sky.  What more could you want?


 Posie new ride in the background?
 Some of the planes on display.
 If I win the lotto....guess what I'm going to buy?

 Nothing like a chopped VW Bug.  Nice car.

 Car at left looks like it is looking at you....don't you think?

                       I almost had a car just like this when I was a teen.

Looks like ISIS was already here.

Nice looking Mooney.

    After a enjoyable visit, time to head back home to Whiteplains.

Our friends Dick and Judy Hitt are vacationing in England, and here is a photo of them driving a new Morgan 3-Wheeler. 
They cost about $40,000 over there, so I am sure Dick will be bringing several of them back home!
