I guess I should dump the "Hoo Sed What" thing. It's just hard to be serious. It's Patrick Cowdrey. It's fun to look at this website, but I'm sort of an "outsider". I was never really "popular" when in school, and just sort of kept to myself to a large degree, but I'm here and doing OK, 68 and in good health, driving a truck. I was retired, but I got a girlfriend...now I'm not retired anymore. Soon I'll be greeting twin grandchildren. Then the total will be 8!
God bless everybody. Email me at *****@yahoo.com =PC= (P.S: Don Aarts is doing well to. He and I get together now and then. He's in the Seattle area.)
