Daniel - 65 Ford + Musical Message

Clyne's 65 Ford will now be lovingly cared for by Daniel Byrd.  I have been meaning to post about this for a bit.  There were 4 Veal relatives in the drawing and one honorary family member - Luis.  Two of them dropped out after finding out Daniel and Abby were interested.  Mostly, everyone wanted to make sure that the truck stayed in the family.  I think that has more to do with their love of Clyne than the fact that the truck is really amazing.  However, it's a pretty fine truck.  I'm going to miss it.

Daniel and Luis will be looking it over this weekend and starting the process of seeing what needs to be done.  That should be fun.

Daniel sent me a check in this wonderful card along with a great background story...  Rudy has apparently been sending musical messages again.  He's really staying busy up there!  I've written about one or two, but truly, these crazy music stories are popping up all over.

Daniel's wife, Denise, bought this card several weeks ago even though she had no idea who she'd send it to.  She just knew she liked it.  This week Daniel asked her if she had any cards around because he wanted to send me a check, even though I said he could wait til he saw me.  She gave him the card.  The reference to music brought up the strange things that have been happening lately to so many people - it's like Rudy is playing music for lots of us.  Daniel and Denise had the TV on during this conversation.  It was the Braves pre-game and the players were all warming up.  As Daniel and Denise were discussing music and Rudy, Daniel suddenly noticed a song that started playing at the stadium - Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd.  This song was one of the songs on the fabulous photo video Denise Wilcox made for Rudy's farewell get-together.  Often, only snippets of stadium songs are played at games, but Daniel said the entire song was played... right when Denise and Daniel were discussing musical messages from Rudy.  Coincidence?  I think not.
