    Life is good here too.

    No new job for me.

    Finally started filling out my SSI on line. I should finish it next week. In a couple of months I should start getting a check.

    Wow, it has been many years since I have got a check. Will be great to get the extra money.

    Cat of 18 years passed and the granddaughter got us a new baby calico.

    Gun club got a new manager this past year and all is looking up.

    Granddaughter is graduating at top of class.

    Got the wife a new Solara last year and now I guess I need to buy me one. No car for me though, probably another conversion truck.

    I care less and less of more and more.

    Life IS GREAT. Ray.......(ö¿ö)

    Rich,

    Congratulations on your success. Life has been good here too. Last year at 52 I decided to take a new job and I must admit things are working out quite well.

    It was really a good move for both my wife and I especially since she wants to retire next year after 34 years of teaching. My daughter will also be graduating from college in the spring.

    I am planning on buying a new shotgun very soon and hopefully I’ll have a little more time to shoot more then I did this past summer with my work schedule.

    Life is good and we should all be thankful for the blessings we have.

    Dale,
