Hi Gary, this is Lynn Halvorson Otto and to let those who care, we are back on-line here in NJ.  We just got cable, which means we have our land-line back, TV and internet.  I have lots of reading and catching up to do on world and local events.  Thanks for all you do and hope Art and Rose arrive safely in Cebu!

Dear Gary,  I have spent some time looking at the picture of Leonard Cote’s Bar, on the far right sitting on the bar stool could be Red Kester, next to him Neil Hassen.  Surely there are others who could come up with more names.  Especially the fellows in the service station hats, they must have worked in one of the stations close by.
Hats off to all of our Military Men on Veterans Day and especially to Marshall Awalt on the Birthday of the Marine Corps.  Marshall is a veteran of both the Korean and Vietnam wars.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Yes Bonnie, That sure looks like Red Kester to me too sitting on the far right stool.  
You realize that this picture was taken nearly 55 years ago.  Gary
