    Not much happening around Monterey these days, however, Josie has recently contacted me to say that she, Andrew, Janis, Dixie and Chuck recently went to Lexington to visit with Skot Atha.

She has also invited me to come along with them the next time. I may just do that. I miss Skot as well. One can never have enough friends. Good friends are hard to come by these days.
