Is Opie on Facebook?
Comment by Harry Warner on Tuesday
I called Opie this morning. Left message. He's been away, way too long.

Tied a all time record yesterday, (92) degrees.... pretty hot for the first day of spring.... also the first time the air-conditioner came on in the last few months.

No snow in the hills this year, very mild winter. I'm thankful for that because we've seen a lot worse.

To all you fine troopers out there, and those not so fine, hope you have a awesome Tuesday. Smile at a stranger, that will really mess with their head !

Who needs drugs when you have Fox News?

Ronny O,

In the late fifties if we ran out of smokes and didn't have the dollar to buy a carton, the PX sold us a pouch of tobacco with a pack of rolling paper for .20 or .25 cents and we rolled our own which gave us about 100 cigarettes or more.  

We didn't smoke weed till the late 60's or start of the 70's
