Good Afternoon Troopers ... ..

How are all the Oldtimers doing? It has gotten HOT as HECK around here, of late. High temps in the Upper 90's. Thank goodness the Humidity has not been as high too. Will be heading North within a week.

Been cleaning and doing PM on the trailer. Plan to wash the truck tomorrow and get a propane tank refilled.

Just wanted to check in and say "HI" Most likely will be back online on Tuesday.

Enjoy the day, take care ... ..  Toujours Pret!

SIG, I am still hanging in there, just can't get to do what I would like to do.  I would like to toss a line in also, but gave all my gear to the ex-fireman who lives across the street from me.  He and misses, keep and eye out on mother and I.  A fine couple.

Gene,  Glad you made it, you say you are 81, I turned 85 on the 6th, I am like you don't know where all of the years has gone too.  Wish I was still able to get around and do things like I use to.  Being in this wheel chair stops the get up and go.  But not down and out.  Take care.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
