He (and I can guess who) is in my thoughts and aura of positive energy.

The party went well, the honoree was indeed surprised. His grandson, the officer, was there as was his 89 year old brother in law from DC and his wife. Carlos said that there WILL be a 90th birthday party in Maryland next year to honor is BIL and he will be there.

One of the things on display was the presentation case (about 20 x 20 inches) of Carlos' bronze star medal (with V for valor) and the documents that go with it. "How," said someone, "did they get that here without you noticing it was missing?" "They stole it," replied Carlos. Actually, they got him out of the house and on the way to the party and then someone went back for it.

The day after tomorrow I fly to Illinois and will be gone most of November. Yes, Pat is coming out about eight days later.

Oh, yes. Driving to and from Reno. Pat insisted on "doing her share" both ways. So much for eye surgery. She has a post-op appointment tomorrow.
