Will, I enjoyed talking to you today very much. Like most classmates, I have appreciated your outstanding service to the class for many years. Most of us probably check the Log and Forum once or twice a day, even though we may not comment as often as we should. Thanks for keeping us informed on so many important and interesting events.

 My dentist since 1974 was for many years a distance runner and explained that one had to have competed in a marathon somewhere before you could run at Boston and must have met a tough timing criteria. He said he ran his fastest ever and was passing out as he hit the finish line. Then he and some fellow runners ran at Boston but weren't concerned about their timing: they just wanted to participate at Boston.

Dick and Latch - My subscription ran out on quick topics and the site reverted to the "free" version. I'll send a payment and get it back as soon as possible.

Dick - Have no idea what your problem is with the goats. Send me an email.

Will: Lach's right. The main home page is being covered by a sheet with the Log, We can't see what's under it, only bits of goats around the edge. ???

How do you get to the Forum now? In the recent past could only access it from the Log. Now don't see a place on the Log to access it?

My last run at Boston was 2010 and last full marathon was 2012. After a bout with the Shingles in 2017 I have not had the energy for distance running. I am happy to get in either a few miles walk or a bike ride to keep the old wreck moving.

Al,your modesty is commendable but which one of those four Americans in the top six were you? I recall running Steeplechase for the 13th Company and having Major Jim Judy call me out to pass someone else as we neared the finish line but that run was about a half mile. I can't imagine having the stamina to run a marathon!

The Boston Marathon had cold heavy rain and high winds but an American woman from the midwest won the day. She even helped another woman get back in the race early on. A Japanese man won but it was encouraging to see 4 Americans in the top 6.

Hey Ed,
  The version I recall about spring coming is: Spring has sprung the grass has riz, I wonder where the posies is! It is 85 degrees here today in Fairfax, Va. which means I felt the heat while pulling weeds in my back yard. It's slow work as the soil is heavily clay and each clump you pull up has to be shaken or pounded to release a lot of good soil. I don't recall any training at Navy on weeds. I remember "Up anchor!" but not "Up weeds!"

Well, I repeat what I said during the presidential election. as I thought it was imperative to ensure the new president will name a new conservative supreme court justice to keep somewhat a balance of views in their rulings. I said I would vote for Bozo the Clown if he would assure that to occur. Someone told me "Well you did!"
But Trump has been to good to that voting base that elected him - the economy is in good shape and jobs are available and
things could be worse and maybe better.

I remeber asking Doc Raiford how life had treated him since he graduated witb us and was not commissioned in the Navy
  - that is exactly how he expressed himself- "it could have better or could have been worse."

Had a major mishap on my computers last night which resulted in the destruction on the current Class database file (among other data) . I have a backup file but numerous updates are required. It will take me a while to get it back in shape.
