jim-photo2  President's Corner

Dear members,

She stands seductively in the pale half–light of an early June morning, perky and proud, erotic, exotic, unaware that I’m watching. Her skin glows with velvety smoothness, damp with dew or perhaps with eager anticipation. Her lovely curves, illuminated by the soft light of dawn stir an excitement deep within me. My heart is pounding, my desire to run to her and take her in my arms is overwhelming...but I know that I can’t! I must leave her! I must say goodbye! A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do!

I’m speaking of course about my beautiful 1984 31’ Airstream Excella trailer. I would really like to take her to the International Rally at Lewisburg, West Virginia, but Raisin, the First Lady, has decreed that we will take the motorhome... says the seat is easier on her back...but probably so the First Lady can take more clothes, shoes and other doodads. I’m not the brightest kid on the block, but I have learned not to argue with a decree from the First Lady.

So, very gently, I ease my beautiful trailer back into her garage bedroom, there to remain until we return home in August. As I peek in one more time before closing the door, I think I see a little pout, a tear in her eyes...and mine, too.

Preparations for the 59 th International Rally/Convention are complete, or as complete as we can make them. Now, as it always has been, it’s in God’s hands. Many people have worked many hours and will work many more hours during the rally...for one purpose...your enjoyment. Thanks to all for having that “because we can” attitude. You will notice a few changes we made in programming this rally...changes suggested by you...and what we believe are in the very best interests of our WBCCI family. It may not be “the way we’ve always done it”...but please, come with an open mind, an open heart, and as a special request from our many vendor friends, an open wallet or purse.

Just as I’ve had to say goodbye to my beautiful trailer, I have to say goodbye now to all of you. This is the last article that I’m privileged to write for the President’s Corner in the Blue Beret. The August issue will bring you a new President and writer, my good friend Richard Girard. I hope you’ve enjoyed these little articles. I’ve certainly enjoyed writing them for you, and I’ll miss being President of this great club. It’s time to go, for the old saying is still true. Politicians, Presidents and Diapers should be changed at regular intervals...for pretty much the same reason.

Please drive carefully on your way to Lewisburg, stay safe and stay healthy. Tune your radio to 93.3 WKCJ-FM, the Voice of WBCCI in the Lewisburg area. They will be broadcasting live from our rally, with rally announcements, information, interviews and great music.

Remember Mae West? She was quite an impressive person in her day, and the Navy named a life jacket after her. Google it if you want to learn more. I’ve been told I will have a small office space at the rally...so let me borrow an invitation made famous by Mae West... “Why don’t you come and... see me some time?”...see you at the rally...and as always at This email address is being protected from spambots.
