Sounds like you are getting some good miles in, Frank.

Andersonville should be pretty interesting. I found some 2d Cavalry troopers that died there during the Civil War. Terrible place!

Geez, I go out of town for a few days fishing and Harry tries to slip a birthday past me.

You gotta be sneakier than that, Harry. Happy Birthday!

I only caught one fish the whole time, but I scored on a cat that had been living in the campground for almost two months. With winter coming and no campers feeding him he wasn't going to make it so he is here now. Not sure how it is going to work with the wife's macaw but I couldn't leave him out there.

Good afternoon Troopers and Oldtimers ... ..

Tomorrow morning we are moving the camper up to the Florida Panhandle. Planning to stay a week at Falling Waters State Park, then possibly head over to Georgia and the Andersonville Civil War Prisoner Camp area. Later in October, will be back to Stone Mountain Park Campground and the Highland Games. Then back to the Tampa area for the winter.

Welcome Arthur,

Do you have any stories from Germany?

What years were you in?

Good songs Harold. Always did like The Temptations and I saw Earth, Wind and Fire in concert with Brothers Johnson in the 70's with my sister and this cute little thing that was her best friend at the time.

You guys might remember me mentioning this gravesite in the past.

Yeah I'm not getting notifications either. Been crazy busy.

Harold, real sorry to hear about the misses. Hope she is healing well.
