Next weekend on November 9-11 the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day will be in town; this will be
my wife's 9th walk, Nine years clear. So any of you San Diego or close Members whish to drive by and
offer support it will of course be appreciated. And it's a good excuse get the Spridget or Morris
out and to honk at all the pretty gals out walking. I'll be in my big white Dodge Ram as support for
my wife's team.
