Amazingly enough, we are supposed to have a couple days near 80 this week.

Had a lady die on the sidewalk in my front yard a few nights ago. Her car was rear-ended by a girl going over 100 miles per hour and the elderly lady's car ended up in my front yard. The other car ended up across the street where it took out a tree and just missed a telephone pole. The girl was arrested on vehicular homicide charges and possible DWI. There is a growing memorial in my front yard. They are standing in my driveway during the interview. http://komonews.com/news/local/its-destroyed-us-family-on-mom-kille...

Good Monday morning to all the Oldtimers and Troopers ... ..

Not too much to report at this time. Wife had a visit to the Vampire this morning, routine fasting blood work. Had breakfast out. In the midst of 3 days of scattered Thunderstorms and rain. Temperatures in the mid to upper 80s for the highs. Lows in the mid to upper 60s.

Broke out the tackle box, yesterday, and added some lures to it (that I bought a year ago). Now I need to dig out a rod and go wet a line in the river.

Hope all are doing well. Hopefully, Spring has finally sprung where you all are living, by now.

Enjoy the day, take care!  Toujours Pret!

You may consciously block it out of your mind or even totally forget about it, but it will haunt your dreams, Harry!

Too late Harry. It's like that Christmas song at Thanksgiving you can't get rid of.

I'm having difficulty getting these images from my head.

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.
