HTC News - May 31, 2020

Can you believe we are already six months into 2020?? My how time flies!!

time flies
Time moves swiftly onward. Time was said to fly or flee by numerous ancients, especially the Romans, for whom Tempus fugit (translated as “time flies,” although it also means “flees”) was a well-known proverb. Chaucer wrote, “For though we sleep or wake, or rome, or ryde, Ay fleeth the tyme, it nil no man abyde” (The Clerk’s Tale). Occasionally the term was amplified, such as “Time flies as swiftly as an arrow” (in Ken Hoshino’s translation of Kaibaka Ekken’s Ten Kun, 1710). Today we sometimes say, how time flies, occasionally amplified (either seriously or satirically) with when you’re having fun.
While we dawdle, our lives pass swiftly. The proverb has been traced back in English to 1386 in Chaucer's 'Prologue to the Clerk's Tale.' The earliest American appearance in print is 1710 in 'Mayflower Descendant.' The idea was first expressed by Virgil (70-19 B.C.), who wrote in the 'Aeneid': Fugit inreparabile tempus' (Time is flying never to return)...

An HTC welcome to OtissD from Minnesota!! Welcome back to the flock, roberx!! Robert, from Indiana, has scored a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and is anxious to show it off. Glad to have you back with us, Robert!!

Try your luck at being "Truck of the Month"!! Post a picture and a write up of your ride between the 1st-21st then we vote the 22nd-months end. After the voting the winner will be messaged for email info. The email is for the digital TOTM award. Printing and shipping them was getting pricey and time consuming. The awards will be printable on your end and then you can frame them. Thanks to Keith (charged392) for heading this up!

It's with great sadness that have officially cancelled this year's rally that was scheduled in Fort Worth, Texas. Just a reminder that if you have already reserved your hotel room be sure to call and cancel your reservations!
