hope you are doing well,  thinking its about time for a birthday, but I can't find it in my calendar, so HB anyway, and if I'm wrong you can just smile.    You are missing all the snow up here, we have over 75 inches right now...its starting to compact a little but still a hugh mess. Al has been on the roof more this month than he has in the last 20 years...hopefully we won't get any leaks in the house.  Melting into the basement is another thing altogether.   Sure your weather is better although the temperatures are kind of low for your area.   Might be marshmallow roasting time.  Anyway, just wanted to say hello  .  I still have pictures of your niece to sent to your sister, need her email if you can come up with it for me.   Pictures are from the visit in Gorham at Christmas.   Bye for now.

Got to see Jose,his mom, his daughter and a group of his friends up at Town & Country a few weeks ago.  He was up for the holidays.  Commander Hargreaves and his wife Jan and Al and I had a great visit.  Jose uses a computer now to let people know his wishes and gets to make his own choices and express his opinions.   His therapist has also been working with him on doing some painting and his mom had three of his paintings on her computer, we were very impressed......I suggested she post them on this site as I'm sure all his friends would love to see them.   We did talk to him and although not sure how much he understood, he did react to us so my theory is he understood us just fine....His daughter Alex is now a junior in high school and has become quite the young lady, we enjoyed talking with her and I gave her a photo of her dad from one of our Police Chief conventions .   I think the days excitement wore him out but it seemed like he was doing good and we hope he enjoyed the visit as much as we did.   His mom seems to be doing well and says she has enjoyed her time in New Hampshire.  Joses friends that were there were awesome people and their kids were super good towards Jose, it was nice to be part of it.
Ok, that's my update....hope for more progress next time.

Hello Jose!
 Thinking about you--Loon will be opening next month and although I'm retired and now living in Maine, planning to visit and hope you can, too! You made it a couple of times last year--missed you on the second visit, but joined you on the first you were looking good!

Hi Jose, hope this finds you doing well.  Haven't heard any news so hoping that means you are doing ok.  They had a "Welcome Home Viet Nam Veterans Day" in Concord a few weeks ago and I convinced Al he should go.  It was very nice and I think it made a difference in a lot offolks lives.  Now maybe some of the healing can begin, sure hope so....


Our grandson is in his middle school band and had his frist marching experience in the parade was this year.    Granddaughter's last year in elementary and Al was once again an invited veteran for the program. 


Saw a picture in the paper of the Lupines(?) flooding Sugar Hill, put the paper aside to cut it out for you but it got tossed. Maybe someone sent it to you. 


Nice to see you still have some friends  checking up on you, maybe its time for some photos so we can see what your doing with all your time in Florida...


Ok,, you take care and be well.
