Bring Back the Game

BRING BACK THE GAME     Anna and I basically spent a month in Asheville, NC this summer.

Every plant in our backyard had dried up and only the belligerent squirrels had survived the summer’s inferno.      We had a great time in Asheville. We visited our…See More

Hello Amanda,

 

I have been in Colorado Springs, I just flew in today and got your friends message. Actually I'm not quite sure how that part of this site works, but I do put a lot on my blog. Which needs attention I'm afraid.

 

I'm made copies of my speech in Colorado. I'll get one to you. It's pretty cool. It's about my Union hero, Gen. William Jackson Palmer.

 

See you soon.

Terry
