Hi Guys! ... ..

YES! We are very happy with Steve's progress and report. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

We have been busy on the RV site. On Sunday, picked up an 8x10 Shed from my Nephew. took it back to the site. Went to Lowes and picked up 30 ,15.6 x 15.6 patio stones to put down for the shed base. Used the military discount, 10%, with the My Lowe's Card. Laid the stones out on Tuesday morning. Saw the guys that are doing the patio slabs, and said, sure we want one. They had it framed out that afternoon. Poured it this morning. Posting pictures of it for you.

Have a great day Troopers..

Oh yeah, my 38th Wedding Anniversary is Friday the 19th.

You couldn't ask for better news on your brother, Frank.  All that and a new patio pad to boot.  Life is good!!

I hope Shannon dodged the bad weather that has been going on down his way.

Good morning Troopers and Oldtimers ... ..

Anither Update on my brother: The Pathology Report came back and they had removed the Pancreas, just in time! IT was pre-cancerous and was ready to launch!

Good news is that there will be NO Chemo or Radiation treatments required! YAY!

The RV Park workers just poured the Patio Pad this morning. Gonna be nice when dry and cured.

Have a great day Guys ... ..
