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.

Dave, ya really gotta stop trying all the positions in the Kama Sutra. There should be age restriction warnings.

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.

I've been waiting for a tale or two about the reunion in Williamsburg. Did anyone take in any of the sites in the area?
Did anyone get tipsy and chase the girls, dance on the table tops or was it one of those things in the bar where you say to the guy on the next stool " I'll believe your lies if you believe mine.
If I'm still above earth sure going to try to make the next one. Have been in that casino and others in the area. Will say I didn't like the way they did business, but it's only few hours drive for me. Looking forward to seeing the " City of Fountains ". Will try to a little recon in that area and give a report in the next couple of years.
