Howard, the forecast is clear in the morning with possible showers later on in the day and rain all day Saturday so the car display will still be going on for those that are interested. I look forward to seeing FFC tomorrow and you all have a place in my speech! Thank you for being the friends that you continue to be to myself and Lisa!

I have never been to a retirement ceremony before. I was awestruck by what I saw. Suffice to say...I was very honored to have been there to watch Senior Chief Ben Kline's retirement ceremony. I especially loved the way he was "Piped" off thru our cars....great show. Once again...Ben CONGRADULATIONS!!!
