Hi ~ Daveed & Dutch,

 

I kept getting caught up with other postings… but wanted to answer your questions… I guess the old saying is still true…  Better Late than Never….   tongue  

 

Daveed ~ We are just outside of Asheville, NC…. If we walk out our back door and hike upward… we would end up at the base of Mount Mitchell. 

We’ve ordered really nice weather for your golf outing in March….  I guess you’ll be flying from (Detroit??)…  I’ll wave as you go over us!!!  “Keep it in the short grass”..  :-)  

 

Dutch ~  What part of NC were you born and raised?  Where are you now? 

Buddy was born in Burnsville but left at an early age. 

 

Take care fellas and thanks again for your kind words and support!!!

In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy
