The Wave...and the Seven Hundred Billion Dollar question...

Marcia, Joe, Fay and Jay and the "Molly Wave" !

Speaking of great RV'ers, the other day the above photo was sent by Bobbie and Jim, along with the following email:

Molly:

Attached is the photo we took as Jim and I drove away from visiting with the Carters and Jones' in Tulsa. The "Molly Wave" is alive and well in Oklahoma.

Miss you and Bob so much!!!


After shoulder surgery last winter, I had to lift my left arm with the right arm and hold it up. Many in our group began to do this and christened it "The Molly Wave". It really did help, seeing everybody else doing this little exercise. I was grateful for the comrades!! Thank you so much, Bobbie, for sending this...it really made my day!!!


Here's another little email that brought a good chuckle:

The Crowds.....
On television today a Democratic operative pointed out that when Obama holds a rally 25-30,000 people show up, whereas when

McCain holds one he only draws 10-15,000.

The Republican spokesman replied........."That's because McCain's supporters are at work."

Well, the news is dominated everywhere, as well as most conversation, with The Seven Hundred Billion Dollar question, and it isn't pretty. Newt Gingrich's proposition seems best, give 'em some rules, take the gamble, make it a "work out", not a bailout. It seems everyone we have come in contact with is opposed to the bailout, despite the possible damage to Wall Street and the economy. Is the bailout just a band-aid that only delays the coming fall of the market, due to the artificial inflation of our economy? Back-to-basics is what needs to happen, for Wall Street and everyone else. No handout is my vote; I'll take my licks with everyone else. One of our fellow campers here at Camp Duncan suggested that we need the American version of the French Revolution. After reading about the hundreds of million dollar payouts to the CEO's, Execs, and board members of the failing corporations, there may be some wisdom in that!!
Hmmmm...... What do you think??

Molly and Bob. I just found that there is a Culvers in Kerrville, Tx. What do you say we all get our fix when we get together in the sping. We hope to have some when we get to Houston. We haven't had any since last fall when we left Minnesota. Safe travels, Paula

And here is a Molly wave from Sherri and I. Hey I am with you on the "Bailout" of course Sherri and I don't owe and one anything and we don't need a loan right now our 401K has been rolled into the
"O U R" account so we are safe from the idiots on Wall Street for now. I sure feel for our children who will have to contend with these mistakes of the past while we go quitely into the night. I will be glad to pull out of here and away from the corporate world I live in now. I always thought it would be so grand to have an office and be in charge of things but now I know better....Soon I will be in charge of Doodly Squat now that is the real dream...

Somewhere in Time

I agree with Speedy and you. That's all we need another tax increase. We're in scary times.

You're welcome, Molly. The Molly Wave is the unofficial salute of the Class of 2007. It always invokes comments.

I am with you, here's hoping we don't become socialist country...
