    It rained on our parade?

    Can you believe it? Here is sunny San Diego?
    it rained on our parade, but Amphi didn't mind.
    I'm sure the homecoming queen and some of the
    other parade "floats" probably didn't appreciate it.
    It only lasted a few minutes? just enough to wet
    Amphi's appetite for swimming. So swim we did,
    Steve & Connie in their pristine red "fresh" water
    Amphi and Mermaid & I in our tried & true turquoise
    (blue) Amphi. BBQ'd too and had a visitor from yet
    another Amphi owner in cherry red '67. I also got an
    email from 2 others interested in future parades and
    swimming festivities. At last we found some owners
    who haven't heard of the Amphi-Lovers digest. So
    next year promises to be a banner year indeed. Likely
    6 or 7 Amphis in our local 4th of July parade! We
    do have a shortage of white Amphis, so if you're a
    white Amphi owner (that sounds racist, let me rephrase
    that) if you own a white Amphicar or any color Amphicar?
    plan now to be our guests here in Scripps Ranch, San Diego,
    CA for a really fine series of parades, swims, the county fair,
    swims, BBQ's and more swims. But be prepared - bring
    your sun screen AND your umbrella.

    PS - where is everyone? I'm the only posting anything!

    No you're not alone, we're busy looking for new ramps to try. We, Emily &
    I, took our grandsons for a dip. We also were rained on, but the boy's
    didn't mind at all, they even liked getting wet.
    Am planning to attend a Wheels & Wings show at Millville aprt next
    weekend. Conf Air Force will be on site. We were rained out last year,
    hope it's better this year. Happy Boating. P.J.H, Phila., Pa.

    Didn't rain on our parade, but it is starting to get hot. We had two of
    our cars in the parade, and as Debra wanted to be a mermaid again, we got
    another family to join us. Debra talked Lisa into being a mermaid too, so
    each Amphi came complete with its own Sailor driver, Mermaid ornamet, and a
    spare kid ... one as a "land shark" and another as a turtle. I think we
    confused the judges as we won the "best golf cart" category. Amphi has
    been called a lot of things before, but never a "golf cart!" Must have
    been the heat.

    Anyway, now that the "simmer" season is here, Amphi might get a little less
    use till it cools off a bit. It isn't quite as much fun in the scorching
    sun baking at over 100.
