Nice stringer of fish, and a great memory, Frank.

How you like those bass, Sig?

Was going through some cabinet drawers the other day and came across a photo of Dad that I hadn't seen in a while. He did love to go fishing. Here he is with his friend and Boss, Bill Davis after a day on the lake. Dad is on the left.

Good Wayne, I am glad to hear you say you requested a new doctor It can not hurt to get another diagnosis.

Shannon and Tom E.  I now have both VA and civilian Doctors, I am waiting for a call on a specialist that i have requested, maybe this one can show some thing new, I hope.  This illness has put me in the hospital twice in the last four months.  It really is getting me down..  I have had enough, i know my wife and daughter have.  Some one has to know what is happening.  I read an article here awhile back but it only told me what the others had said,.same thing..

Wayne go to a civilian Dr, don't you have that option being you live so far away

Comment by Shannon Ryan on May 4, 2016 at 2:49pm

Wayne, have you gotten a second opinion from a different Doctor yet? sounds like its time to see another specialist. Maybe look into some alternative medicine, sometimes another set of eyes will see something someone else missed. Hang in there Brother.

Good afternoon to all of our Troopers and families.  Yah Tom, I can't get rid of my virus.  Doc did nothing more than issue me some more of the anti-biotics they had been  giving to me before.  Doesn't seem like it is clearing out my system.  A few weeks and it will be right back.  I can tell when I am getting it back. I get weak and my head starts to going down hill.  Sure wish they could find the cause.  

Well looks like We are going to have a few nice days, sure need it I have to put out some killer, I have come up with some Termites with all this rain.

All you folks take care.  Best to all.

I talked to Ric already about it, Tom. I can't figure out what the problem could be. He keeps getting an error message when he tries to upload the profile picture. He has no problem uploading other pictures, but can't change his profile pic.
