Harry, I hear yews guys are in for one humdinger of a storm. You should go out and see if you can get pee to freeze in mid stream. You could make a million bucks on YouTube with a video!

Wow, cool pictures, Sig! So, that's what the sun looks like! Thanks for sharing.

Actually, it has been pretty sunny here the past couple days, but kinda cold. 20's at night and into high 30's to low 40's during the day.

Spent the better part of yesterday with my wife, daughter, son in law up in Pasadena viewing the floats from the parade. They are so much more beautiful up close and you can see more details

Ernie, I went to the Heidelburg house also in Fort Lauderdale. Better entertainment there, however; the food is great by Checkers old Munchen. And he loves the GI's that were stationed in Bavaria, and our waitress last time was from Nurenburg.(Too young to remember Merrill Barracks.

Happy new year to one and all, hopefully the next year wont go buy as fast as this one did. Seems like it was not long ago everyone was worried about what would happen when the year 2000  rolled around and now its 2018 already man time sure is flying by.
