T.G. I.F.


Happy 4th of July to all our American friends, as you celebrate just take a minute to reflect on all who have served this great country of ours to make this possible.


               4th of July at the beach, Pensacola Fla.


I spent a short cruise on Detachment 62 of HC-2, aboard USS Independence CVA 62, went to the North Atlantic countries of England, Norway, and Denmark. Coldest flying weather in Nov & Dec in the North Atlantic. She is now in the mothball fleet at Bremerton Wa.

This is one of the first 4th of July’s I ‘m not camping, we gave up our lake property and private campgrounds are always crowded to capacity, so I decided to wait till after the holidays, when I can relax in an uncrowded pool and take Rigg’s for nice runs without a ton of people distracting him.

The weather here couldn’t be better sunny, low 80’s and not very much humidity.

Donna has to work at the restaurant tonight, Rigg’s and I have our usual homeland security detail.


                             Sam is ready for duty.


            This would be Sam & Rigg’s.

That’s about it for today we will be enjoying the nice weather until Donna goes to work. Hope all is well for all our friends out there and have a safe 4th of July holiday. Sam & Donna………


  1. I was wondering about the lake. You hadn't mentioned going there lately. Lots of places to camp. Bet you find a great one.
