Merry Christmas, Shannon.

Mike is good. See him on Facebook a lot. See Gene there sometimes too.

Comment by Shannon Ryan on December 23, 2017 at 12:33pm

You are right Harry we have not heard from Gene in a while.

Comment by Harry Warner on December 23, 2017 at 12:25pm

One good thing Ronny....if you have a real bad day, you won't remember it the next day.

How do you measure Tough? Check out a tough old trooper who resides in Ft. Worth, Texas. I salute you Wayne you are my hero.

Received 1/2 inch of snow and the T.V. people are having a hay-day reporting it . I'm afraid to go out.

In Bindlach we didn't see the ground for six months out of the year, snowed ever night and no one reported anything. No jeep tops or heaters just kept on doing our jobs and thinking not much about it. Just colder on some days than others.

I can remember things that happen in Germany fifty years ago but can't remember what I did yesterday. Have a good one today.

Good thought, Harry. I know this has got to be taking a big toll on them too.
