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 !

Have a safe trip Shannon.  “Woof” to your Dutch Shepherd.

Good morning troopers, just checking in, I am still here in California I should be heading out for TN. by Monday with my first load I am hoping. I have a few things I am trying to take care of before I leave, just a couple more items to pack up. It looks like it will be my Dutch Shepherd and me driving out this load, she is a good travelling companion and a great guard dog she will keep any riff raff in check. I think we will drive and spend the nights at Wal marts along the way. I usually spend the nights in their parking lots when travelling  some of the super centers stay open 24 hours and they don't mind if you spend the knight. I still plan on taking I 40 across on this trip. I will keep you posted. have a great day..
