Yeah computers are great. Went to a STp family gathering back in 2000 and chat with a few of them time to time. Don't know if you remember Sally, we were together when we were all staying in Preachers Cave in Arroyo Hondo when you and Bev were together. We had four kids, moved to Alaska and I lived there for 20 years. Then we got divorced and through the internet Abbe and I hooked back up. We've been together now to 13 years and living in Northern Cal. Sure have some great memories. Still have this mental picture of you and Bev walking at EPP when she was pregnant. You were so much taller and her belly was almost as big as she was tall. Ever come through Northern Cal give me a shout.

Morgan
