I'd like 1 more chance to take out the corner of Florida lake with one of those rounds.

Brings back memories of the Little Creek Naval Gunfire School.  Now I'll have to dig out my course book. Salvo!!!

Will do!!

Do you scuba dive?

if you do, the 3 of us might be able to go together!!

Dont be surprised if you dont recognize me...I'm just a bit larger than the last time that I saw you!!!

anyway, Handville and I are planning on doing some diving while I'm over there!

He keeps on telling me that the water is really warm there most of the time, so i've got to find that out for myself.

Take care and I'll talk with you soon!

Hi Carl,

I just wanted to drop in and say howdy!!

Just for your information, Im heading out to New Jersey later this year to visit with Handville and his wife for a week or so!

I dont know where you live, but it would be great to take some time and see you as well!

I know that we didnt have all that much time to get to know one another once you arrived at How Batt, but I think that we can correct that in short order!!

Hope that you are well!!
