Sorry if I brought up memories in my other comments. I didn't realize I was answering an older post. Hope your mom is still with you, if not my condolences for her passing. As far as surfing the rivers here, sorry to say I haven't had a chance, but if you ever make it up this way I'd be game to give it a chance. Great to hear from you, but I'm wondering how many messages I've missed over the years because I didn't know this message board was here lol. All the years in the USMC working aviation electronics and the years since working on electronic devices I'm still not very computer savvy lol. At least now I know where to look lol.

Been there a couple of times, but I liked the one in Cherokee better. I'm making the best of living in Murphy, but other places I'd rather be. Savannah,Georgia where I was born, but you make the best of where you're at lol. Long story short of how I ended up here. I was my mom's primary caregiver after my dad passed. When she passed lost everything and my sister gave me a place to stay in Murphy until I got my own place. She passed about a year ago before we could get me back home. So here I am for now. All I can say is enjoy your mom while you can, I did and I'll always treasure the 23 extra years I had with her. It's great to hear from you and I hope to see you at the next reunion.
