Jim, happy birthday to your son. I'm still trying to figure out how my youngest got to his 30's.

Sounds like a great plan, Shannon.

Well guys, I'm adding another notch on the I'm getting old marker. My son Jim who was born in the Nuremberg Army hospital turned 50 yrs. old today. Can't even begin to figure out where all that time went. Seems like yesterday we were bringing him home to Amberg, and I was sporting an incredible hang over:=)

Harold, I've seen Joe in that position a few times, also going up and down steps like that, and doing push ups like that. Did you know Joe learned all that while working in the circus !
