Small world to run across you on the social network. Eunice and I are doing great, loving life, traveling as often as we can get away. Our daughter and her family live north of Dallas, in Frisco, TX. Mike, who State Farm wouldn’t accept as an agent, is now the managing partner of northern Texas, New York Life, #1 office in the company. I retired from State Farm in 2000, couldn’t take it any more. Don’t miss it one bit. Lots of fond memories, although. Loving life. Glad you are doing well.

Bryan, somehow I missed your message from back in Nov. Sorry, but my tech skills are lacking. Great to hear that your son is doing so well. SF missed out on a lot of talent through faulty politics. Glad that your retirement is working out well. I share your comment re fond memories. I am enjoying my writing. First book “Depression Baby” and now “Up From Hanging Dog” , which is already on Kindle and with the paper back coming out in two or three weeks. If you want to give me your e-mail I can notify you of events such as book signings My books are on Amazon. Plan to publish at least two more. Having fun with this. Keep in touch.

My name is June Woodland and I’m from the UK but I believe that I have two photographs of the William Rogers Threshing Crew. They are both of a panoramic variety, and judging from the dress code – they are American rather than British. I have scanned them as best as I can so if you email me – I can send you a copy…..

Ray, Its Vicki Ivey. I like to think that I can take a little credit for your literary career. I remember telling you that you should publish your stories. I really enjoyed reading them when I worked for you. Plan to order one of your books. Best of luck on all your future books!
