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.

Dave, I must admit I thought the worst after these too many days without hearing from him.  On the brighter side is that maybe Vi and their daughter will have time to recharge their "batteries".

Great picture, Ernie. Merry Christmas.

Safety first!

I noticed that too Harry, about the comment box. 'Bout time the landlord started using all that rent money we pay them and start fixing things up around here. Hell, they won't even give us the key to the place. Just paying guests here.

Thank you Harry for the update on Wayne. I'm sorry to hear he has been in the hospital but sure glad to hear he has been able to pull through it. Best wishes to him and Vi.
