Retired CG MKC JJ O'Neil "passing through" Baltimore sometime this evening, driving down the coast from Cape Cod to his home in Florida.
We hope to meet for dinner here in Baltimore . I haven't seen JJ since our Sherman reunion in September of 2009. A good chance to discuss plans for the 2012 reunion and continuing the development of the Sherman website.
In other news, as of today I have managed to upgrade my main computer hard drive from the totally filled IDE hard drive (and it turned out just in time to retire the old failing hard drive) to a new 2 terabyte SATA drive. (After many problems and glitches with the old drive!) Today I hope to finish all the housekeeping and set a restore point while the drive is "pristine".
Tomorrow I have plans to meet up with a Sherman shipmate, retired Chief Federico Villanueva. Federico retired from the Yard and stayed in the area like I did. So we are practically neighbors! We plan to have lunch and catch up at the USCG Curtis Bay Yard.
Still raining hard here .. they are predicting up to 4 more inches of rain today in the Balto-WashDC area! ... Trees still falling because of the soggy ground!
