[image error]Colt and I just want to thank everyone for their well wishes last weekend for our visit to Jon on Memorial Day. We were humbled by the people who said they were going to go out last weekend and plant flags. We we moved by people who said they would take Colt with them and have him play Amazing Grace for the too quiet places of honor. It was unexpected for Colt to be turned into a 4th

Michael Thanks for being my Goodreads friend, although since I've read ALL of your books, I feel like we're already friends. "Dance of the Bones" is next up on my Kindle. My reading genre of choice has always been mysteries and thrillers and I hardly ever get into sci-fi, but I started to see movie ads for the new Matt Damon movie, "The Martian" and it looked really good. I'm one of those people who always insist that the book is better than the movie. So I got "The Martian" by Andy Weir and I can't put it down. I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to read a "by the seat of your pants" book with just the right amount of humor.


Christine Hatfield Thanks for being my friend
