  1. I got home yesterday after spending a week at Larrys hunting and beer drinking had a great time. We also watched the Ken Burns series on Vietnam it was eye opener for the things we learned if given a chance watch it. On the way to Larrys I stopped and visited Tom Virden, it was the first time I have seen him in 48 years. It was so good to seem him and his wife.

  2. Johnnie Pearson sent me the following email:

    Greetings to you Larry, please let others know this sad news.

Please keep Don and his family ( Rosemarie ) in your prayers. RIP. Don you will be missed. I salute you

    1. Don was great guy even though every time I played poker with him he always seem to have a winning hand. God Speed!

    2. Sorry to hear this Jim. I sent him one of the sculptures that I handed out at the reunion on November 1. I hope he got to see it.

  4. I just got back from Nashville where my wife Judy and I met up with Gary and Tressa Evans and Ed and Marie Davis. We had a great time in the almost week we were there.

    I have heard from two guys expressing interest in next year’s reunion. I will get details soon.

  5. I don’t know about you guys but I can’t wait for election day. The TV is nothing bull advertising for both parties. I mailed in my ballot weeks ago so I don’t care.
    One of our governor candidates has FBI inquiry going on & none of the candidates has a clue about how to deal with Red Tide!

  6. Francis:
    I did & the government sent me some questions:

    Q: While in High School, College & the Military did you ever engage in binge drinking?
    A: I can’t remember I was passed out

    Q:Did you ever smoke Marijuana?
    A: Yes but I didn’t inhale! (That work for Bill Clinton)

    Q: While drinking did you ever touch or caress anyone in their private areas?
    A:Yes, only women, who were willing & were a eight (8) or better!

    Q: While serving in Vietnam did you or the men you were serving with ever use excessive force against the Vietnamese?
    A: Like Napalm or B52 Airstrikes?

    Q: What is your legal opinion about use of the Death Penalty for Capitol crimes such as murder?
    A: All you need is a Good Rope & a Tall Oak Tree

    So think I get confirmed?

    1. I voted “yes” on your confirmation as as most of this happen 50 years ago when you did not realize what you were doing as a young man. Plus other people have done worse.

  7. Thought I like to lookup some old girlfriends. I going to run for Supreme Court Justice.
    Let the press do it for me!

  8. Since no one has gotten to me on the reunion next year, I will volunteer Rapid City again if you guys are up to it. I will propose a four day reunion since it will be our 50th year class reunion.
    Think it over and let me know by the end of the month.
