… even though we ain't got scratch …
Date: October 3
Thanks for the counsel. It’s great to hear from you, and it was great meeting you and Fran. Many times it’s felt strange being out here, me as a Lone Ranger, without even a Tonto, filing my reports at sunrise. At last, I meet someone from the Company, and they turn out to be pretty remarkable.
The foliage is just starting to turn. I drove up the valley and through a lot of farmland. There are U.S. Marine Corps flags everywhere – more, I’d say, than Old Glory.
