I want to wish ALL the Fathers / Dads a Very Happy Father's Day!  Hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends. We are going over to the daughter's in East Bridgewater for a dinner.

Hope all are in good health. Saw on FB, where Carl Kreitzer is awaiting test results. Holding good thoughts for him.

Enjoy the day, take care.

20 years ago while in Richmond, VA I stumbled across Monuments Ave. Never saw so many Confederate monuments before. There was some debate about taking them down then but they are still up as far as I know.

Ronnie understand the hate for Andrew Jackson, all you have to say is Indian removal Act.

Nice story about Armstrong, never knew any of that. Hated that they took the memorial of Robert E Lee and others down,now if they want to throw Jackson's statue in the river, it want bother me one damm bit. He is the most detested person in the Cherokee Nation. Old Cherokee elders hated the man so much that they would not pack a twenty dollar bill in their wallet, would ask for two tens. I'm serious.

Frank, New Orleans is a city like none other. Jo and I were there 4 times. If John Boyd was still around he'd hitch a ride with you. You would have the luxury of not paying for a hotel room. GO!!!! If you weren't there pre-Katrina, you would have nothing to compare. GO!!!

Never been, Frank, and probably never will. Had some friends go down a couple times recently and they had a real good time.
