Hi from Art

Post by Art Bell » 10-16-2008 08:13 PM

Hi all!

Were back in the good old U.S.A. and have been home for a couple of Weeks. Still in the travel mode however, we are about to take a Cruise to Hawaii for about 15 days
which is why we will not be around for Halloween. Then it is off to Chicago for the induction. After all the travel we will settle down for a bit and enjoy the Desert.

As usual I want to thank all of you for being there for me in so many ways including the votes that put me over the top and gee, I did not even speak with Joe the Plummer.

Asia is a complete Angel. ( Most of the time) as healthy as can be with a smile which would melt steel. Airyn is also well and we have a recent picture of the
three of us up.

I hope not to many of you have been hit by the financial bomb that went off while we were in Manila, it looks like we are in for a lot more pain before it gets any better.

There is a time for everything, the time to answer many of your questions is not now, I hope you understand. The time will come.

Love you all,

Art, Airyn and Asia

Terrific to hear from you, Art, and that the family is well. If you have any new ventures in broadcasting in the future, I'm sure we'll be eager to support you.

Love and smooth sailing to the three Bells.

I find the words "the time will come" very comforting! :)

Hi Art, :)

It is wonderful to hear from you again. I hope that you enjoyed your time in Manila and that your upcoming travels will be great. I am very much looking forward to your induction in the National Radio Hall of Fame. You very much deserve it.

Like all of the Pirates here and your countless other devoted listeners, I miss listening to your radio broadcasts. I eagerly await whatever new course you will pursue and understand and agree that "there is a time for everything".

Please take care. As always, I wish you, Airyn, and Asia the very best.

Man, it's great to hear from you, Art! We're so happy YOU'RE happy.

Oh, we know Asia's an angel -- the look on her face is a pure reflection of the love you and Airyn have for her.

Have a great time traveling, and we'll be watching the Hall of Fame Website for pix and happenings at the ceremony. WE ARE THRILLED and SO PROUD OF YOU!

Halloween won't be the same without you, but you'll feel our luuuuuuv wafting through the Hawaiian palms and riding on every Pacific wave. Should you see a ghostly ship with a tattered Jolly Roger sailing just off shore the evening of Oct. 31, you'll know our mind experiment worked! :D

If another little Bell slides down from Heaven while you're over there, will she be called HonoLU-LU? ;-)

You're going to be worn out by Christmas, but should be all better by New Year's Eve. ;) (We're so selfish!)

Lots and lots of love to you, Art!

Art! Thanks for checking in with us. It means a lot.

Enjoy your cruise and have a blast with your family. Be sure to bring an extra sweater for Chi-town -- however cold you think it's going to be, it will wind up being one sweater colder. I left Chicago because it's too cold. No other primates live that far north. It's not natural.

And as for the end of your message . . . we do understand. We'll be here.

Hey Art! What a surprise to check in to the Ship for the evening and see this message from you! :) Thanks so much for thinking of us. We Pirates are always here for you. Know that. Sounds like you've got a pretty full schedule ahead of you, but a fun one. (Ha! Ha! on Joe the Plumber! :D) Much love and many blessings to you, Airyn and Asia from Corvid and me.

Welcome back Art. It's always great to hear from you and to know you and your family are safe and well. Have to admit I was getting a bit nervous wondering if all was well in Bellville. I know it's kinda weird, but I worry about you and yours when we don't hear from you, kinda like when my brother doesn't keep in contact for awhile! You shouldn't leave us hanging so long! LOL! Just a quick, "I'm fine, we're ALL fine" would suffice! You bad boy! Shoot, you could do that in a coffee shop! (seee.....you're getting what my brother gets! ;) ) Anyway, looking forward to those answers in the future. Hope the Financial meltdown didn't hit you too badly. God Bless you and your family! Take care. :)
