"It's hard to believe that it's been 45 years ago when I first did my first Patrol on the border. I was only 18 years old, it was winter time and very cold. We had the old o p trailers. And at night it was jet black across the border.…"

Hi Butch,

Glad to hear you weathered the holidays ok. I was off from the 22nd till the 3rd...too many vacation days left and had to take them or lose 'em and that aint happening. We had a pretty good time, ate too much and seemed like we went to the movies every other day. Really sucked going back to work but oh well.

Why aren't you over here with the Oldtimers? C'mon in!!

Yeah probably shortly after six PM at the hotel.  I tried to send you a text message via your cell phone, but it didn't go through?  Something about the string not being long enough?  You do have cell service out there in Kansas Toto?

Hey Butch, Ive been slack though we have been busy last few months. Im still coming to the reunion but the wife wont be able to...work really picking up for her right now and she just cant get away. She finally finished chemo and then 8 weeks of radiation and now has the all clear sign from both her doctors. The day of her last treatment she went up to DC for a Susan Koman cancer walkathon, 3 days and 60 miles. She was wore out when she got back home that sunday evening. I call her my tough little kraut LOL, and hardheaded. I have an appointment with a hand surgeon the morning of the 10, trigger finger, and will drive up that afternoon. If I cant make it up there by 4 then I will time it so I get there a little later same day. Traffic in the DC area is murder on the best days. In any case I will def be there. I saw where you had tried to call CJ and also saw Jerrys comments about when he last talked to him...I have emailed him and posted comments on his facebook page as well to zero avail, sad. Would have loved to seen him or even talk to him again. Ok buddy, you guys take care and see you on the 10th!!!
