Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts!
Joseph arrived at Fort Bragg, NC on Sat. the 2nd. He sounds in good spirits. He, they will all be there for evaluation for 2 weeks, and we expect to see Joseph (and shave) on the 16th. I had goose bumps of joy when I heard from him on Sat. With Our Love,
VJ and Family

Had 2 weeks of Vacation, if that's any kind of excuse. Flew 3 of our Grandkids in for a little over a week of bowling, ice skating, movies (theater and DVD). Gilroy Gardens, Great America, Sailing, Beach and Boardwalk at Santa Cruz, Gym only twice for some stretching and gut check. Put on some good pounds. Am working them off starting today.

Hey, did you work off those vacation pounds yet? My family reunion week is winding down and so is my last week of irresponsible eating.

Well our son came home on leave from Iraq on Thur.. He will be here for a couple of weeks before being stationed next at Fort Bragg, NC. So when I shaved my beard I lost a couple of pounds. Otherwise food is plentyful at the moment, so I haven't made much gain, but will try to get somemore workouts in, and start that diet and work harder, as 55 is a little over 3 months away.
