Ronny, do you remember the question?

Good to have you back, Ronny. That's why I have a surge protector and always shut my computer down when there is a chance of thunder and lightning.

Been off-line for close to two weeks. Lighting storm knock out my DVD player for good and mess up this computer, but I'm back in the fold now. Harry's information about Louis Armstrong would have answered a question on " who want's to be a millionaire ) the same day he posted it.

Good Evening Troopers ... ..

Things are going well , here in Mansfield, MA.  A mixture of coolness, warmth and rain, and breezy (read as Windy). We will be in place, here, until August, then travel North to Vermont and a visit with Colonel and Dolores Krawczyk. From there to New Hampshire, possibly Quebec and then to the Campout / Reunion up in Eustis, Maine at Cathedral Pines Campground.

Hope that everyone is doing well.

Harry :: the lightbulb in the night light finally burned out and we replaced it with an LED one.

Take care, enjoy the evening ... .. Slainte!

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.
