Thanks Harold. Yeah, just a Ranger tab.

Pretty nice up here in the Great Northwest. Several records set yesterday including the earliest/warmest day ever in Seattle with 76 on March 17. Real nice again today and supposed to continue tomorrow. Kind of nice after one of the coldest winters we've ever had.

Lookin' good, Sig. Glad to hear the treatments are almost done. You hang in there and give us a goal to shoot for.

Rainy Day here in Florida, so sitting home watching TV. Courage under Fire with Denzel, is on and last time you wanted to know what Patch he was wearing on left shoulder. Its a short patch with yellow and red with the word "RANGER" on it.

right Shoulder is The 2nd ACR Patch.

Sig, Glad you enjoyed the movie.  I feel it will be a big hit for our Memorial Day program.

I pray your treatments go well for you.

Take care of yourself

Good Monday morning Troopers and Oldtimers ... ..

I hope everyone had a  "Happy St Patrick's Day".  We had a family gathering with Corned Beef and Cabbage, Red Potatoes and Carrots, and Soda Bread. Faux Key Lime Pie for dessert (weight watcher style)

My Brother, Steve, is coming for a visit next week. He wants to see us before his surgery on April 10.

Hope everyone is doing well. Enjoy the day the Lord has given us! Take care!

Toujours Pret!
