Thanks for asking Peter, unfortunately I must say that I don't know how things are there since I fled to FL for the Winter. We're just heading back this week and currently passing through Savannah GA. on the way. My boys tell me it's still cold up there however!

I can hardly wait to get home so I can pull out my cruise books and look up some of my shipmates. I was assigned to RVAH 13 in Sanford just about a month before deploying to the Pacific on America. Then returning to more schooling in Albany, and off we went to the Med. on Forrestal. Too many great memories to ever be able to relate them all to the grandkids. I particularly remember the double deck pinochle games in the PECM shop and selling cans of soda out of there.

I've got some photo's I can post at that time too...

I have been traveling for the past few weeks and wanted to update you on Palmdale, CA.

Palmdale slowed down a lot on the defense contractor side in the early 2000s when the B-2 bomber production run was cut short.  The B-1 bomber had been finished here in the 90s and the space shuttle repair was moved to Florida around the same time.

The completed the 14 freeway in the late 70s and early 80s.  We have been a commuter town down to LA for a long time.  The defense contractors maintained R&D facilities here, but sent the plane assembling to other states because of the cost and related poor workforce.  They are gearing up to assemble the new B-21 bomber here over the next few years.

There is over a half million of us here in the Antelope Valley.  My home here is my second home that I use when the wife is displeased with me.  She has a nice home in Pacific Palisades with a nice view of the ocean.

Thanks on the dog. Yup, he's my good buddy for life. Been to Moultonboro quite often in the past. My son lived there and worked for Independent Marine up until a few years ago. He lived in the Oliver farm house on Sheriden Rd. Nice area, used to come up to see him from Henniker, NH which is where I live.

Peter, I'm gonna keep taking them and celebrating as long as they keep coming.  After 70, I think they are all big, but I had Grandparents on both sides that lived up into their 80's and one in his 90's so I'm kinda looking forward to a few more (I hope).  My Grandfather that lived to be 98 wasn't sick nor frail, in fact he was pursuing some ole broad at the Senior Citizen's home and just didn't notice that she took a left at the top of the stairs.  Sadly he didn't make it to the bottom of the first flight.  You really got to be careful in the pursuit of females, they are crafty and dangerous.

Thanks Peter for your comment.  I was in Dallas and close to the storms.  I actually live close to Austin.  The kids all live in the Dallas area and gave me a party.  Was in VAH-6 from 57 to 59.  So now what does a person do after 80?  PLAY GOLF.
