…I think he’s suffering from something else! By “Boomerjack” Boardman Jay stopped by at insane o’clock this morning, as he frequently does when he wants to post to Active Rain. This time, he informed me he was too sick due to “his allergies” to post, and gave me the keys to this blog. “Allergies...

It’s a very comfortable 66ºF, although a bit humid this fine Saint Paul morning on my back porch. I served for a time while I was in the Army at Fort Gordon near Augusta, GA, and the weather here this past weekend reminded me of the weather I suffered through then: mid to upper 90s and tropical!...
Life is full of changes. Codger Harold Peterson died on Wednesday morning, peacefully, in his sleep. We buried him today. He will be deeply missed by his family and his friends.
