That's good. How's Homer doing - he's in CO Springs too, right? Sorry about his wife; he wasn't married when he was in Germany was he? Don't know exactly how I'd react if a serious disaster hit this area in MD, but I'm constantly thinking about it. At least I have a bug out bag.

How are you coping with those fires? Hope you're not in the danger zones.

InRe:Betty Page extra ciricular activities.TMI!!! Don't forget, we are old and it takes some images longer to leave our brain. Now I have to concentrate on rebuilding the trans from my '49 Ford. OK,where was I?

Hello Todd,

As I was reading the brisk dialogue from yesterday's Oldtimers I saw where you were on CPAP. I started a company in the early 90's that did home testing for sleep apnea.  I lost count of the number of people I set up on CPAP, but compliance was always a big problem.  How long have you been on and how are you (and your S.O) tolerating it?  There are different kinds of head gear, "pillows" usually being more comfortable.

Drink up buddy. There is however a terrrable hangover that comes with the fruit of the vine.
