    Default Bad News for Drummerboys October

    We've had to scratch the October trip. This has been the worst year our little two-man country law firm has had in a long time. The real estate market here came to a screeching halt about a year and a half ago (a large part of our practice has been real estate closings), just about the time DW had to have more back surgery, so we are having to cut back.

    I'll look forward to the reports.

    Ken,

    Sorry to hear you won't be there either.

    I know you must be disappointed as well as many Intercotee's will be knowing you won't be there. Bummer !

    Remember....... in business it's best to diversify.

    Here's some for your DW that, 1)..... she gets her back in order, and 2)...... that she stays out of the drivers seat of the RV.

    We'll miss you but the most important thing is your DW's health. You must stop making her carry around all the drums!

    I'm very sorry to hear this, Ken. Maybe the market will start looking up soon!

    We'll have to enjoy the trip reports together, as I've had to scratch my trip as well.

    Oh, Ken...I'm sorry to hear this! Maybe you can provide some of your "divine intervention" and turn things around by then!

    Truly, you'll be missed...I was so looking forward to meeting you. Keep us updated on the Mrs.!

    And Mel- you're not going either? Shoot, I was looking forward to meeting you too!

    No Ken! No Mel! No Pogo!

    Wait, I already knew there would be no Pogo!

    I hope Mrs. Ken is feeling better and stronger soon. I'm going to miss seeing you all there. I understand though. I have also entertained the idea of using my money elsewhere, but my heart is outweighing my head....I'm weak!

    Ken, I'm so sorry that you've had to cancel. I agree with Ellen, you just need to start carrying your own drums

    Here's some extra to help things get back on track for you and the Mrs.

    Mel, you're not going either? I was looking forward to seeing you again.

    Well that stinks. I was really looking forward to getting to finally meet you in person, Ken.

    Although trust me ... I totally understand the downturn in the housing and mortgage markets. Not a day goes by that I'm not affected by it myself.
