HARRY, I AM NOT ON ANY OTHER DRAGOON SITES. ONLY OLDTIMERS.

CAN YOU PUT THIS ON SOME OF THE OTHER SITES?

Comment by Jim Clendenen yesterday

A little something to get you crusty old Cav Troopers misty in the morning.

Comment by Harry Warner yesterday

Harold, you’re preaching to the choir.  Your post would get more exposure on the main page.

Before the day slips away, I want to wish a Happy Father's Day to all the Dads here in the group. Hope you had a great day.

My Son spent part of the day with us and helped me put the 5th Wheel Hitch back into the truck.

Good evening Troopers and OLDTIMERS ... ..

Harold, Harry Shannon and Dave ... Thank you for the Birthday wishes. This auld, travelin' Scotsman has made it to 74. (older than some, younger than others)

Spent the day with the wife and son. Breakfast here in the camper then aff tae the movies to see "Aladdin", quite good. Lunch at  Steak and Shake, bought a grill (gas) and back to the camper. Dinner with the in-laws after Church tomorrow.

Hope that everyone is doing well. Enjoy the weekend. Take care.

Toujours Pret!
