    Hi John,

    I don’t know if you remember but we first met in 1978, at the National Convention in Denver. It seems like yesterday. I still remember the Denver Post putting a picture of Emmett Andrews giving the bird to the then President of the L.A. Local. Emmett had a big smirk on his face. They had to put it on the front page!

    Us old guys have to look out for ourselves. We never know what’s lurking around the corner. Retirement isn’t what I thought it would be. I’m somewhat disappointed with neurologists. They seem to have problems getting things right. That being said, I’m still chugging along. I enjoyed my times as an officer of the local.

    I wish you all the best, for a long time to come.
