    Hi Daniel! hope you can make it as well. It was really nice to meet you and your son. I should be there by 9-10am.
    My dad 's health is improving! Yesterday, he was down graded from the ICU unit to the observation unit(one step lower than critical) Thanks for asking Daniel.

    Jaime,
    Glad to hear about your pops. I know that has got to be somewhat of a relief for you and your family. I'm going to bring an eight man tent, small bbq pit, meat, beer, and hopefully some good luck. Maybe someone can pick up some plates, napkins, plasticware, etc.

    Jordan,
    I should be out there to meet you guys tonight. My boy is kind of unsure at this point, but I may just smash out there by myself. I will get off @ about 5:00pm. I talked to Robb on the phone last night about it and where to go. I will either be in a tan T-Bird or a white Malibu. I'll be flashing my brights as I'm coming in past the bridge so keep an eye out. I'll have my phone with me, my number is (559)433-7899. I got Robb's # so I'll call him when I'm on my way. See ya later.

    Sean!

    Those burgers sound off the hook. You're gonna have to show me how to make those. Looking forward to tasting them.

    Message for everyone:
    If you're bringing something please post it so we know who's bringing what. That way we can work on figuring out what we still need. Thanks.

    Sean!

    Hi Bros, well... I got good news and bad news. I just got off the phone with my dad's Dr. They finally diagnosed his condition along with Menengitis he has a condition called Encyphalitis what that is an inflamation of the brain that changes the normal blood flow to the brain; He scheduled to leave the hospital within the next few days! My dad has a long recovery with physical therapy. I need to speak with my dad's case manager to arrange physical therapy for my dad. He is most likely need to go to inpatient. So with a heavy heart I will not be able to make to the Mendota Sleugh on 8/29.:sad2:
    I need to be there when my dad gets discharged and take him to the inpatient physical therapy facility and over see that operation. All of this is going to take place within the next few days. I hope all of you understand my situation. My parent's mean the world to me.
