Hello all. I'm new at the moment but not totally. I believe the last time I posted here was sometime in 2016. I left here for medical reasons, had a couple of operations at the VA Hospital and now all is good?
I'm noticing a few names are missing since my last post, buddies, I hope all is well with them. I see there are still some that were antagonists in the past, and still are to this day. Some never learn I reckon. Anyway, my name is dave.


I'm sorry, Dave's not here. Oh sorry, I thought I was in a Cheech and Chong bit.

That was then, this is now. What we see now, is not what once was. Older, slower, I hope wiser, bones creak and muscles groan but heart and mind for this land and her people are still as strong.
