Default Birthday Cards Wanted

A special someone is having their 90th birthday on January 4th. Mary Roberts is asking everyone to send birthday cards to him. She gave me permission to repost her message originally found on her FB page.

A longtime friend and mentor is having a birthday on January 4. I'm hoping all of you will join me in wishing him a Happy Birthday? Please send a birthday card along with a note to Vern Estes c/o Estes Industries, LLC, 1295 H St, Penrose, CO 81240.

If it's as cool as the card you and the Vixen sent me for Christmas he will love it!

Done,

I hope it makes it on time. I had the pleasure of meeting Vern at NARAM 35. Initially there was no vendor at the meet, I was set up on the field near the Estes and Vern came over and asked me if I had any 1/2As. I was so happy to help out the guy who made it possible to produce literally millions of those motors.

I feel relieved. I had visions of a jeffyjeep build picture showing off those “Herculean” thighs ...
