Happy Birthday Frank,  You're catching up with me real fast.

Dave, Is there anyway you can put it in as album of the day on the various 2nd AC websites?

I not be getting any notice of postings here.  Gremlins, perhaps?

Aye, a fine Happy Birthday to the wandering Scotsman, and well wishes for ye co-pilot.

Harold, that was one mighty fine video!! Hard to watch and not get a tear in your eye. You really put your heart into it, and it shows.

Sorry to say though, I don't think there is much I can do to get it on YouTube. The file is HUGE and I can't figure out how to do anything about it.

Great Toujours Pret to all and good health for our upcoming future.

Can anyone help me with some basic training pictures from the 50's to late 60's?

I am starting on  the Veterans Day 2018 movie

Frank, We pray for Cathy and recovery.  Good Health to us all.

Problems for oldtimers are scary.

Dave, you're in the mail

Frank, we can deal with most things but not when our loved ones are hurting.  Ibuprofen can be hard on the stomach. FYI, just be aware.  Glad you have a plan.

Good afternoon Troopers ... ..

Took Cathy to the ER, Saturday afternoon, to get her left leg checked out. She'd been having pain and heat for several days.  They did an UltraSound/ Sonogram on the leg and confirmed that she had Thrombo-Phlebitis. About the 3rd time for her to have a flare up, in the past 30 years. Prescribed 600mg Ibuprofen, Use of a heating pad and keep it elevated.

Had a follow up with her Primary Care Doc this morning. Doing good, to continue the meds and heat/rest  and another follow up in 3 weeks.

Hope the guys trying to contact Wayne's family have some success.

Enjoy the day, take care, Toujours Pret!
