    1. Thanks Tom. Yeah, it was pretty funny on board, E7 stewards calling a E5 'sir'....Quite the experience, cruising around Manila Bay, sitting on the shaded fantail, drinking gin and tonics....

    1. Yeah, the years dull the loss, but it's still there at times....this time of year, wishing for some advise about kids, stuff like that. But we had some great years, saw a lot of life. She pulled me through after VN, endured a lot in getting me well. Hope you and Judy are well.

  5. I know that's a wound that never heals, and I'm sorry. ♥

  6. It's largely healed, but now in my twilight it often comes to me how much I/we missed, in the last decades. It's ok, it's life,eh?
