Frank,
You heard of that soldier that was killed last week and they're burying him up your way somewhere N. of Jupiter. Well the VFW Captain is going and on TV he was wearing the Cavalry hat. I could not see what number was above the Cross Swords.
How you liken the west coast?

Hey Dave,
How are the blizzards up there?
Hope you're safe and letting others do your snow shoveling.
That's why we left NY.
No more snow but did get cold here this winter.
Stay safe.

Good afternoon Troopers and Oldtimers ... ..
Tis himself, the Wandering Scotsman. Just a quick visit for today. Not on my laptop, it still needs to be taken in for repair, some kind of DNS Server Connect problem.
Me and the missus are doing fine. Not traveling for the nonce. Had quite a few problems in September, on our travels. 3 flat tires on the same side, broken Propane system (due to the flat tires), Microwave quit., leak in the Hot Water tank line. All has been repaired, but we're tapped out financially. Part of it is the 6 month Lease that we signed here at The Happy Traveler RV Park. $750.00 + Elect for 4 months, then 2 months only paying for the Electric. Next Lease will only be $500.00 + electric per month.. The Sites all have full hook up ... Elect / water / sewer and Cable (need to have ours looked at, as it is not working)

Any way, just wanted to touch base and check in. Shannon, hope your move goes smoothly. I did get a Christmas card from Wayne, but no note of news or circumstance. Harry / Sig / Harold / Dennis and Dave , hope all of you are doing well.
Have a great day, take care ... ..
Toujours Pret!!! !!

Sig, the early years of the Garden State Parkway (GSP) saw many races in the northern section. Rumors at the time claimed it had no speed limit. I have no proof either way.
Speaking of Hackettstown, I used to go fishing at the falls off Rt. 46. I never caught anything, probably causing me to lose interest later in life.

Harry, was into drag racing after the military, both on the track & off the track, ran at Hacketstown, & Old Bridge, got busted a couple of times in my 55 T'Bird with tri power and a mild street cam, once with the lake pipes open.

Shannon, let me know if you hear of a time machine.  What I miss most is my youth.
