Hey Michael, I pray all is well with you.  I worry things aren't going well with my family jewels.  So far the Urologist has been positive.  There was a problem with blood in the urine and had to go through a cystoscope. Horrible feeling.  Anyway, GOD be with you.

Mike, I hope your health is improving, it does seem that our whole social lives consist of going to the doctor, and pharmacy.  I love that picture in your living room of the old ship, and the model of the old ship over your fireplace.  What got you interested in ships, especially the old ones?  I love that kind of stuff, but I spent a lot of years in the open ocean.  I knew the first minute I got in the blue water, that was where I was supposed to be.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
