Haven't see hide nor hair from the Wandering Scotsman lately.  Hope all is well.

Thanks Shannon. I'm thinking it was probably suspended from a long-gone ribbon.

Like my newest (and oldest) 2d Cavalry challenge coin?

Man shot 200 times with upholstery gun.

Surgeons reveal he is now "fully recovered".

Hi Ernie, Thank you for your prayers, a Healthy, Happy and Sweet New Year to you and your family.

I am glad all went well.

Welcome back Ernie. Glad the surgery went well. I was pulling for you in the Giant's game too, but that didn't go as well.

Hey Harry, got ur email, sorry been mia. It seems I have been called out of teaching retirement to host my granddaughter as she goes to virtual school twice a week. Been busy, with dr stuff ; minor back surgery to remove large cyst. They flagged me twice going to TSA saying : excuse me sir do you have a small bomb taped to your back?  Lol now I should be clear sailing. There has been some other minor things I won’t bore you. Donna going thru some stuff too, but all in all, I can report Northern squadron NJ present and accounted for, ready for duty. BTW HAPPY BIRTHDAY (belated) hope all is well!

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
