Good morning Troopers ... .. 

Sincerely hope that all had a great Thanksgiving Holiday. We spent the day at our daughter's house, excellent meal, and watched a movie.

Today, I am at one of the in-laws, mooching their wi-fi.

This is the screen room we have at the campsite.

Gonna swing by the storage unit and pick up our  Christmas decorations later today.

Hope all are doing reasonably well, our increasing ages taken into account.

Enjoy the day, take care, Carry Sabers!   Toujours Pret!

Gene, it's Pence with all these picks.  The Don is a space cadet, Pence is picking very opinionated picks, and our CIA was 7th Cav mostly I couldn't find 2nd Cav.  and get this; he was born in 1963, 4 yrs after I left Germany, got married, and had a baby.

Harry, I am 1 yr older than you

Boy, to be 18 again. But only if it was 1959! And I was smarter! And rich!! I would change a few things, but not many.
