    Hi Nick: I got here about 2:30pm. Will look for you Thurs. It took me a big 1 1/4 hours to get here from San Diego. I had to fight big trucks and dirty smog much of the way. It's certainly beautiful here.We are in a huge canyon. Saw 3 deer last night when eating dinner. They come out on the golf course when the golfers leave.
    I heard Ron Rapp is in hospital. If anybody gets more news, please post.

    Hello Helen & all. No, I'm not in the hospital. But my oncolgy doctors asked me not to go to the meet as I have a new medical problem that has poped up. I'm waiting for the results of a nuclear scan at this time. I feel fine except for the fact I had to cancel the meet. Please post photos!

    Ron I second that on the pictures, & I hope everything works out for you. I'm sorry that I won't be able to make it either, but our new Club member Brian Peters will be arriving with my car sometime Friday. It would be great if someone would start a picture thread from Laguna so all of us unlucky folks that can't be there can at least check out all the fun you're having through pictures.
    Thanks

    Hi Ron and Alan: I sent Alan some photos because so far I can't download photos from new laptop to 190SL site. I can to other places. I took some photos of our going over a ferry today, also a few inside the MB Classic Center in Irvine. We also got lunch inside MB Center.
    Am glad to be back in Laguna Beach. Boy, 20 degrees difference between inland and at the beach.
    Thanks to Bill Ainsworth for picking Aliso Creek Inn. Gorgeous, cool, good food, dog-friendly. My dog does thank Bill even though she growled at him. This place was built in 1958 and it's in a big canyon. Has golf course, deer, studios with kitchens so I can make my oat bran in the morning.
    I'm sure other people will post more car-oriented topics.

    Laguna Photos

    Here are a few pictures Helen asked me to post, She's having some trouble posting photos with the new laptop. See Below:

    "First photos are at ferry boat taking us across Newport Harbor to Balboa Peninsula. Very short ride, about one minute.
    We had started at Aliso Creek Inn, drove into hills of Laguna Beach, gorgeous views, into Corona Del Mar, then onto Balboa Island and to the ferry.
    We then made our way to MB Classic Center for lunch and a tour.
    It was 75 in Laguna and 95 in Irvine. We left our hotel 10:15 am and got to Irvine 12:45. That is somebody else's gray car at the Center, not mine. I think the rear end of Bruce's old SLR is showing in one photo.
    While there I bought 2 inserts for my windshield wipers.
    Tonight we have Italian dinner buffet."

    Alan: Thanks so much for doing my photos. When I get home, will try to figure out the downloading.
    I saw Jim Villers taking photos tonight at dinner. I'm sure lots of photos will be coming.
    I look forward to seeing your car that Brian is bringing up here tomorrow night. Will get some photos of it.

    That blue car is inside Lyon car collection. This person used to be an Air Force General and was in home construction. So he has samples of his safari hunting inside with his collection. Now that I see I got this re-sizer to work (after only 2 hours work--Vista makes it harder), I will post more photos.
