    Hi all,

    I know many of you know Jess, Michigan shooters escpicaally. If you have his phone number call him. If not just wait for the shoots at the MTA grounds next year. How will the Poastal Service will get along without him?

    After the health scare he had last year in Tucson, I'm glad he made it to

    retirement. I'm sure he is looking forward to shooting a lot more targets.

    Jess was my neighbor when I lived in Michigan, and is the one who got me into trap. There is no nicer guy nor better friend.

    I retired a couple of months ago, and one of my goals is to make it back to Michigan and shoot with him again.

    GREAT!!!! Good for him. Met him on my first trip to GLG in 97. Great person with a ton of questionable stories. HA!!!!!!! Always good for a laugh. Because of him I started going to Howard Twp CC. MTA and HTCC--two of my favorite places to shoot, but both a long way from Joliet, IL., but worth the trip.

    Hope Jess can find time to bring some more of his fine wine to Double Adobe this year.

    Congratulations Jess,

    Maybe I will start getting my mail on time.

    I still get home to Michigan now and then, so I'll see you some time.

    Enjoy your retirement,

    Just wanted all that care to know I took Jess phesant hunting today. He, my dog Bodie(named after another close friend who left us too early) and I got 5 birds on a shooting preserve today.

    Jess said he is heading to Tucson after the first of the year, so you that are in Arizona can see him there.

    Pocattella I hope you come to Michigan, I would like to meet you, Jess got me into trap also. I heard you used to have a couple of real nice bird dogs.

    Snookassasin email me so we can do some fishing and shooting in Florda I leave on the 12th for Sarasota.
