If you don't like the song, you can turn the sound off and just watch the gorgeous girls on roller skates.

Good morning troops, " Happy Independence Day " to all. Nice day up in the lookout tower yesterday, temp. 68deg while down here in the valley triple digits. Got to call in my first two Smoke Checks ( fires outside of the Nat. Forest ) in the afternoon. First in 5 years of Tower duty. Enjoy the celebrations and fireworks and be safe !

Happy 4th of July Harry, and to the rest of you troopers too!

Put up a new 25' flagpole the other day and this morning at sunrise I hoisted the Colors and my C Troop Guidon to christen it. Also have flags in front for WW II, Korea, and Vietnam wars.

Oh yeah, and I got these....

I have noticed some changes here at the Wyoming Michigan VA, and it is NOT for the better,  it took me 14 weeks and upteen phone calls to get a single cortisone shot in my knee.

I am glad the changes have been good for you Wayne. Not for me !
Lost my care team of 5 years. They helped me stay healthy. Switched hospitals now . Hope it gets better. 3rd Doctor in less then a year tweaked my BP meds and I ended up in the ER. I know he meant well. But at 60 I do not want to be part of any experiments . I have pretty good insurance through work yet, but, thought the world of the VA until recently.

Wayne, the bad weather has been missing us here.  Just the usual hot, humid stuff that makes me miss snow.  Seems like most of the other parts of the country have had more than their share of storms and such.
