Other Comments:
They recently found cancer in my colon  late 2006.  Great news - radiation, chemo and removing about a foot (no bag required) took care of the problem in early 2017..

I just participated in the 2018 Route 66 Fun Run from Seligman AZ to Topock AZ in the sweet 1987 Corvette that I purchased on the Marine Corp's Birthday.

Attended the Commandants Marine Corps Ball in 2016

I had a four-way heart bypass on my 81st birthday.  I am successfully into my second month of a three month process of healing and all is going well
