Just got my spiffy new Kifaru ECR cap & wanted to say thanx to Patrick & crew both for the hat and everything else they do for our online community.

A bit of news from PA: I got the 2d highest vote total in the district, but missed the Republican nomination by 90 votes and the Democratic nomination by 7 votes. At the time, my father-in-law was dying of leukemia (he passed away 36 hours after the election) & we made the decision to spend the final days with family rather than on the road campaigning. In hindsight, I am pleased that my priorities were where they should be in making that decision. It was the right thing to do.

On a more pleasant note, we have the Tour of Honor in our county this weekend with the traveling version of the Vietnam War Memorial & other exhibits honoring veterans from past & present conflicts. Based on other appearances in rural areas, the organizers are expecting about 40,000 people to stop through over the 3 days that the Tour is in town. Our band "The Local Boys" will be playing on center stage from 5 to 8 pm on Saturday 5/30 as a part of the festivities. Two of the guys in the band wrote a song called "The Wall" about the Memorial that is a gem, and we went into the studio last week to record it. We'll be playing it for the first time in public at the Tour of Honor this weekend.

Hunting & fishing have kind of taken a back seat to other duties over the past few months, but now that i've got my life back, I expect to be going off the grid shortly. Ahhh, blessed solitude.

Keep well, brothers, and until we meet again...
