Merry Christmas, Everybody !

Nov 26, 2018 - Frank Lytle stopped at Stinnet, Texas, to visit Bob Pinkerton a few weeks ago.  Our shipmates look healthy and happy and they want to share Christmas greetings with the entire crew! 

Bob says he is spending lots of time bowling and of course Lytle is on the road visiting shipmates. 

Things here in Gold Hill are about the same. Wife is recovering from a suspected stroke suffered in September and I am still in remission.

My best to all of you, and Merry Christmas!
