Good afternoon Brother Troopers and Oldtimers ... ..

Belated Happy Birthday to Sig! Hope you had a great day.

Called my brother , that lives out in TX, yesterday. Looks like he will be scheduled for his Surgery towards the end of this month. If I heard him correctly, he's on an Insulin pump for the diabetes and is on an enzyme regimen for his digestion.

We are doing all right here in Thonotosassa, Fl at the RV Park. One more big payment on the lease, then 2 months only having to pay the electric fee. Weather is warming up, already hitting the mid to upper 80s. Need to replace the thermostat on the A/C unit. Ordered it online. The toilet is next on the list.

Shannon - hope you will enjoy your retirement and the move to TN goes smoothly.

Hope that all are doing well in health and life. Spring is coming....sooner or later.

Enjoy the day the Lord has made. Take care.

Toujours Pret!
