Shannon, I mix the 2 brands equally.  I have a 12 cup coffee maker and it’s nearly to capacity every morning.  It’s so good it should be illegal.  Stay safe.

Shannon, you were born the year I graduated high school.  
Dave, I wish you would give a warning before posting selfies.  I almost had coffee out my nose.  
Ernie, at J.J's initial presser he stated he did not want one dimensional players.  Players who can play multiple positions are more valuable and can stay on the field longer.  I think he will be alright.  I certainly hope so.  VERY happy Erica is getting better.  Stay safe.

Damn Shannon, you a youngin! Hope you enjoying new digs in Vol State. I'm 64 feel like 74, but not complaining. nice to dial up this page and see some of the oldtimers around. hope everybody and their love ones safe from virus. My daughter is doing very well and I owe a big one to the man upstairs. 

Harry the Draft is over tonight and the Giants did not pick one "skill" set player.  O linemen and Defense players ONLY. I think that was smart hope they can compete if there is a season.

Hi Dave -  speaking for my self and I assume the old-timers would agree with me, I want to thank you for your great work you do on  maintain Dragoon Base, but also in your dedication of keeping alive the regimental spirit of the 2nd Cav.  Always Ready -  Chief
