Happy birthday James Smith. I remember when Tommy Sanders, you, and I (I think Herbie) went to Crystal Beach during Spring break, and it was cold and rainy the entire stay.

Happy birthday Dave. Have you recently traded any of your art for a hunting or fishing trip? One of the best offshore trips have taken was in Newport, Oregon. Two of the guys on the trip were from a town south of McCall…I can’t remember the name. Take care and enjoy the day.
