To me, it Is worth it. Do you like the features that come with the RS package? I have no intentions of heavily modding my Camaro.

My wife had a terrible fall yesterday and badly broke her ankle. The hospital is 70+ miles away over in the east valley. She may be able to come home today.

Depends if you can afford it or not. I love the headlights, upgraded wheels, appearance and also the upgraded rear axle due to the wheels! Can't remember everything you get, but I think it's worth it.

Dang, so sorry! I played baseball with my grandson this weekend and thought I had done something similar a couple of times...........turned out ok, but guess us Old Farts have to watch out for things like that!

Glad you guys had a good time. It was killing me to miss it. Timing was good too missing the bad weather & having nice weather during the fest. Maybe I can make it next year.

Whether you know it or not, odds are pretty good you are going to get the mod bug after your car arrives. Look at what is in the RS package that you would want versus what is in it you don't care about, how much the things you want would cost to add aftermarket versus what the RS package adds to the cost you will be paying interest on. I added the Halos and had options on my car without the RS package that gave me what I wanted. Tough call. Good luck.

Sorry to hear of your wife's injury. I hope she got to come home & that she heals quickly.

I had a VERY busy day & have a lot of computer work to do. I'm sitting her watching the return episode of my favorite show - 24. Pretty good so far. I better get to work.

Very long day at the hospital today. Wondering why it takes 3 hours to discharge a patient.

Yeah, nobody at hospitals gets in a hurry about anything. Sorry for the ordeal you & the wife are dealing with.

Another day, another dollar. Coffee time then off to work. I did not make it to my new exercise class yesterday. I had a late client in crisis. I am not too crazy about the class any way. Thursday after work our Camaro club is suppose to be featured at a local cruise-in & concert that happens every Thursday. I hope I have no clients in crisis that day. About time now to get myself in gear now, HAGD all.

Thanks everyone! Claire is learning to get around quite nicely. Lots of her friends and family have been calling her.

Got a new windshield in the Chevelle and it looks nice. Hope that was the last rock hit for that car.

Some pool equipment was delivered today. RUMOR has it work will continue on it today.

The rumor turned out to be false, no one showed up to continue work on the pool.

Good morning crew. I was sleepy last night & turned in a bit early so woke up earlier this morning. Today I need to get prepared for a club event on Thursday evening. This is a hard one for me with my work schedule. It is a local cruise-in and concert at a local music venue. Our Camaro club is being featured this week. They will feed us (supposed to be a great chef). I hope I can get off a bit early. It is supposed to be another nice but unseasonably warm day here. Have a good day everyone.

I am so glad this day is almost over. Just bad all around. But I kept plugging away.

Got a neat Camaro thingy from Kirban Performance. Can't wait to get around to installing it. it's just a neat trim piece I've wanted since I bought the car.

Pool people came today. It's dark out and they are still at it. Must be a mile of pipe in and around the hole! I take a photo when I can.

Hope everyone is doing OK.

She gets around better each day. Seems her pain comes and goes, but has not been unmanageable. Her first evaluation is Tuesday and we're hoping for a smaller cast.

First treatment yesterday. The people at the cancer center are wonderful. The treatment rooms are pleasant. I had a little garden outside my window and the sun was shining. The trip to Texas was a nice break and the FEST was fun. Thanks for all your Prayers.

Today ended up being much better than yesterday. Claire was able to do a little laundry and made dinner.

I'm still buried at work. I suppose that will be the new normal. But we only have one more day before the weekend!

Glad the first treatment went well Skipp. Sounds like you are keeping a good attitude & that will help a lot. More prayers to you.

Glad the wife continued to improve Rick.

We had a great turnout at our Cruise in/& concert - 22 cars. It was nice. I was totally beat when I got home. I posted a couple of pics via IPhone from there but was just too tired to post more after we got home. More tonight. Saturday we have our ladies cruise & tea room luncheon so there will be pics from that too. Here is a link to the thread from last evening:

It was a slow day in the office today. I finished posting the IPhone pics for last evening one at a time from my IPhone from work. I just painted my finger & toenails which I guess is proof that we girls wear makeup & such for each other & not for you guys. LOL. Tomorrow is the Music City Camaro club Ladies Cruise & Tea Room Luncheon. I am going to post up the rest of the pics from yesterday & go to sleep. Have a good weekend.

Props to you, Rick . . .


Last night was my oldest granddaughter's Junior Prom. Hard to believe how much time has gone by. Here she is with her Mom (son's ex). Those two clown around with each other mercilessly and one of them had just stuck her tongue out at the other one (and I have the proof ). I cropped as much as I could out of the background, it is what it is because fancy shoes on a muddy lawn wasn't gonna happen.

I hear she got in around 3-ish.

Well after much debating we have decided on our summer vacation for this year. We are going to Nashville during the second week in July. We went there for a day maybe 7 years ago and saw a few sites so now we can take our time and see a lot more and take in some of the music scene there. Janice do you have any suggestions on must see places? We will be bringing the truck and camping trailer and staying at a campground. They have a shuttle bus that you can take if you want to visit some of the bars. I may take advantage of that LOL.

Oh that is soooooooo cool! You will have fun. Lots of things to do. Let me know what you guys like. The Country Music Hall of fame has been expanded. There is music everywhere, depends on what you like. Tootsie's & all the honky tonks are all along Broadway. The New Music City Center always has something going on as do the many other venues around Nashville. We will definitely come up with a plan.
