as a single woman!!

;-)

The wedding is less than two weeks away (7/7) so I haven't been around much but I wanted to check in and see what was going on.

I am still unable to drive the vette. Its to the point now that its a running joke with a neighbor who walks by with his dogs every night and yells something out. The other day I was covering the car back up as it was going to rain and he yells over "someday Lori, someday"! Bahstard! LOL.

So tonight Rick yells out to him, "at least she has a classic car! " Turns out the neighbor years ago had an old Mustang but got rid of it when they had kids. Now the youngest kid is 22 so maybe he will get something.

So I am HOPING that by August the new motor and tranny will be done since the Monte "project" is hopefully going to be ready for the wedding. So its been a bit of a bummer every time I see a vette or other classic car drive by. Since I bought the car I have yet to have a full season (may - Nov) driving it.

Well I hope you are all doing better than I when it comes to having your vette on the road.

Stay cool!!

Lori :w

Congrats Lori!

You realize you will have additional clout as a new bride than you have as a fiance. It will get done soon.:L Or else!:bash
Anyway, thanks for joining us, and may your trails be happy.

Congratulations Lori - just celebrated my 35TH last month and my bride just wanted to take a day cruise to Cripple Creek in the 02 Coupe. Hope you have many years of happiness and that there is a corvette to ride along with you. I know my wife loves the corvettes and that's about all I can ask. Again - congratulations ... and keep us posted as the married oceangal.

You'll be able to get your neighbor back for his comments... one day, just be patient.
Congratulations!

Wow!! Luck you getting married on 07/07/07. This is a date of signifigance. they say.....

The number seven is considered significant, sacred or lucky in many cultures and religions. In Chinese culture, seven represents "togetherness". The Bible records seven days of creation while Pythogoreans consider seven the vehicle of life.
Then there are the seven wonders of the world, seven days of the week, seven colours of the rainbow.

Congratulations!!!

Thank you for all the nice well wishes. I can't believe in less than 10 days i will be getting married! Of course if we don't get the marriage license tomorrow night we won't be getting married at all!

I hope it isn't this hot on the cape next weekend. My youngest and I went on a whale watch today, it was so nice and cool on the water and we saw some finback whales - the best was a mom and her calf.

Thank you again :)

Congratulations on your wedding...here is a hint...have your bartender(s) serve Mud Slides at the Party :beer...the guests will love them. Or ask Dawg (Blackdog) for the Creeper's recipe. :cool
