Very well, thank you. How are things in the lower half of the great state of Michigan?

Things are well, thank you. Were on the cusp of Fall up here, which is nice... I just fear what is after lol.

We just set a record for 58 days without rain in Anacortes/Seattle. It's been a wonderful summer here. We have lots of mountains, trees, and water but not the snow they get back there in the MI. We only had two days of snow last winter.

That's sounds great, wish we could say the same lol. Last winter was the least snow we ever had in my life time, but it was still bitter cold. The funny thing is hope this coming winter is as nice lol.

The Wings held summer practice at the Pullar Stadium in the Soo. Gordie was a great prankster. I think he was the best player ever to play the game.

The Cavalla SS244 was the only American sub to sink a Japanese air craft carrier during WW11. I served on the Cavalla in 1959.
