    Just FYI, I joined a couple of months ago, had my “new” 1947 red Chrysler at Sizzling. Pretty much soon after, I fell and smashed my hip. Recovering from hip replacement and home over Labor Day weekend, I experienced extreme pain in my side. Gallbladder, emergency surgery, and several more days in the hospital. I had hoped to attend the show on the first but was not ready. I hope to join you again soon.
