Comments:

Things have been sort of static in my life. It's been a good static not a bad one. I finally finished my Corvette and have shown it in a few car shows. Linda and I take it out regularly to get Spoons or out in the country to eat.
I am still working as a finish carpenter. I do wonder if I will ever retire but who knows. It keeps me up and going. I'm sitting here watching the A&M-Louisiana-Lafayette, typing and wondering what kind of season we are going to have with Texas A&M this year. What's new in Texas 2017? Mostly "Harvey" left its toll in Houston and surrounding areas. It's totally heartbreaking. Luckily we only got 17" of water. It might be because our home is not in the flood plain, we only had a little water coming in through the chimneys. I still work full-time as a cabinet and trim man. Linda and I have been questioning where all of our energy has gone. We are grateful that our health is holding and we can still be active. I think that we all agree that we grew up in the bet of times; music, morals, etc.We're looking forward to seeing everyone at 55 reunion.

Hi Tom, Hope things are going well with you. We are planning on going to the reunion and will miss you if you can;t make it. I am still working, probably the oldest finish carpenter in our area. I'm having a good time with my Corvette and continue to chrome and work on it. I have been attending car shows, sometimes placing and sometimes not. I've been blessed with good health and good family. I hope you have too.

I took this 73 Corvette from the ground up. It is almost finished. It's been fun restoring it and I am so ready to have it finished so Linda and I can cruise around with oldie music and the top off.
