    I believe Cookie, but pictures would be too much to ask for under those circumstances. No Homeland Security drones flying overhead in those days:D

    Hahahaha that is a tricky exercise!!!! Although....it is important to maintain something as you get older. Not sure this would be considered, but a good laugh for sure!

    Hey! Sorry, but I would like to follow the instructions of my trainer instead of doing that.

    Hi Don,
    I'm still kicking. I hit 75 just recently. The aches and pains increase with age, but I guess I can't complain. Too much time on my hands, but no time to do anything. Makes no sense, but that's the way it seems to be! How are you doing these days?

    Just watching the Kohler toilet commercial on TV with the robots "Please, Humans First". Every time I see it, it cracks me up.

    Cool.

    Here is a link to live ham radio in Texas for your entertainment.

    http://168.8.96.5:8888/

    Normally 80 meters is good at night and early morning, And 40 meters is good during daylight hours.

    Have a great day.

    Hi Don,

    Since I was in my early teens, I have had no interest in Ham Radio for some reason. I did help a friend back then build his first tube radio set using a Morse code key before he was able to afford to buy a Hallicrafters Radio! He was able to communicate with radio operators in Europe with that homemade set and a LONG wire roof antenna. Long, long time ago. Thanks for the info and link anyway. Have a great day my friend!
