cousin Shawn: Happy Veterans Day! This photo was taken in August 1988 as my ship traveled through the Suez Canal returning to the Mediterranean Sea after a 6 month deployment to the Persian Gulf.

This is a picture of me on the side of our house standing in the road.

I am investigating the after effects of the blizzard. Then I started playing in the snow falling into drifts, etc. I used to love to do that and still would but... —
This is an enclosed front porch that I used for my garden room! It was the only way out of the front. Kent is trying to dig his way to the door while I played on the side of the house to the left. — in Brewster, Kansas.
