Going to a blackberry pick/picnic today. Supposed to be our last day in the 80's for 2015. I think it is like the 52 day at 80 degrees or above this year, shattering the old record.

Y'all have a good day now, heya?

Interesting idea, Harry. I'm gonna have to chew on that a minute and try to figure out how to do it. Got so many things going on right now, my head is swimming.

For an old guy, you still think pretty clearly. Oh yeah, Happy Birthday tomorrow!!!

It would be just like starting a new group. Waddaya say?

Dave, why don't you make your father's unit a subset of Dragoons? I think it would be an honor to have him be a member, and it would certainly be worthy of all you have done to honor his memory and his service to our country. This seems the perfect place to bring him "home."

Since Comcast is doing away with personal websites on their network, I've been scrambling to save the info I had on a few sites honoring my dad. This is what I've been working on since yesterday. www.99recon.com Still got a long way to go and numerous errors to correct, but I wanted some opinions and you guys' matter more than most.

Sorry Gene forgot today was Friday

Good morning Mike, Tom W., and the rest of you Dragoons.

Mike, sounds like a great day to spend the day. Today is also the 4th anniversary of the war horse's demise. He was a major pain in the ass, but I sure miss the big bonehead.

Tom W, what can I say? Family outing in the everglades? Invite the skank, she's practically a daughter-in-law. Sorry for your wife's loss. My condolences.
