Thank you for the welcomes here...been busy all morning reading them.
Ok...see if I can remember most here.
Bob and I are originaly...Manchester and Goffstown area. There are friends and cousin galore scattered throughout N.H. and Maine.

We got to go back up back in May after we got the ok from Bob's doctors at M.D.Anderson. we stuffed on clams etc. Friends who did all the driving in their new Van enjoyed the lobster and scallops. The trip to the Nubble light at York Maine had them fascinated and we went to the Weather Vane. The only sad note was at the Mountains where the old Man of the Mountain used to was weird to see that empty space up on the side of the Mountain.

Hey WM Lucky has the copy of that tape of Radio Bikini about the Crossroads Operation in the south pacific. Sad to say there are very few left of the crew from the sea going tug they were on.
Thank you all again...take care and God Bless.

Granny I saw a few Army training films with that hydrogen bomb test and they showed us we could survive them and whip the Russians as soon as the dust cleared.I often thought,If the place looks like that after an H bomb.Why dont we just let the Russians have it.It would hardly be worth a hill of beans. sad..    Posted 08-12-2004 at 16:30:44       [Reply]  [No Email]

I've always thought that a person's genetics were not as important as what they make of themselves. If you have what my grandmother called "gumption", you could do or be anything you want as long as you don't ever quit. Anyway, we are pretty well straight English on both my side and my wife's. There are names like Holbrook, Gibson, Ball, Hamilton, and Asbury all through the tree. I even like hot tea but not ice tea. Wierd, huh?
