Hi Erika! How have you been? All is swell, I hope!

2 quick questions:

(1) Have I been a big dummy and let my membership support lapse for WLT, Inc. I remember getting something in the mail... being confused (duh, my bad not yours)... and setting it aside never to be seen again. :-(

(2) Can you make it to the fest this year? We'd love to have you of course!!!! It's July 12 & 13. We received a sponsor for your appearance from Caldwell Tanks, the water tower company. I know gas prices are outrageous right now - but email and let me know what you think. ;-)

Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi, Big Tomato! Glad to see the CatsupFest back to being it's glorious self... The Mobile Museum did its last appearance in July of last year, so we can start focusing on building the NEW Bigger Better Version! Which is taking MUCH longer than anticipated... That means that the old Mobile Museum is not longer Mobile.

HOWEVER... I do have a smaller Art Car, which speaks about the same things (roadside attractions, exploring the offbeat) and features a mural of WLTs (including the Catsup Bottle) and roadside attractions. We've been pairing the small Art Car with a smaller portable set of WSVs and photos, tailoring the display to the event/venue.

We could develop an Illinois/St.Louis area, or Watertower Wonders, or Rt. 66, or a little of all set for the Catsup Festival, with the small Art Car "Scout", if you'd like to have us! Whaddya think? Pics of "Scout" online here:

That all sounds good. I think a little display of Rt 66 and/or Illinois/St. Louis would be fun. But that's just me... Soooooooo, I'll explain all this the "the committee" and see what gets decided.

The festival is 2 days. If you could make it by 4:00 for the cruise on Saturday that would be great. And then all day Sunday until 5:00 just like before.

Yep! The display would still be a good selection (aprox. 20 models or more, and accompanying images) from the World's Largest Collection of the World's Smallest Versions of the World's Largest Things, just a little different format... Please, let me know if you need any further information for the committee, and hope to see ya...

Cruise at 4:00, Sat. July 12, overnight, and all day Sun. until 5:00. It's on the calendar - let me know what they say.

Thanks for the invitation, and see you soon!
-Erika, Director, WLT Inc.
