Haven't been to the VA enough to really notice. Still got the same primary care doctor.

Has anyone noticed a lot of changes in Staff at your VA medical center since last November? I have and it has not been good.

That's some funny stuff, Joe!

Harry, out of a group of four, which one was a New Orleans native? Two different Family reunions today. Have some pie Ronny.

Dave,Do you still think they have too much time on their hands?

Ronny, do you remember the question?

Comment by Dave Gettman on June 30, 2017 at 12:30am

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.

Frank, glad to see the "camper" is still in running condition.  :)

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.
