I'm traveling today for the first time in a long time.

Heading down to the Valley of the Sun for the annual Stanley picnic.

That's a once a year reunion of residents from my home town - Stanley, North Dakota.

This year will be a special once since a childhood friend whom I haven't seen for 48 years will be attending.

Jerome Larson will join Jim Burbidge and I as these three amigos get together once again.

Just to prove that I haven't always been a "cat man", that's my dog, Honey, getting the adoration of (l to r) Jim, Me and Jerome.

Hopefully tomorrow I'll have a fresh photo of the triad, minus the dog.

How many ex-pats are expected at the Stanley picnic and will the men be having a "nip" in the parking lot like in the old days?

Looking forward to seeing you again, Bruce.

Have a great day in the balmy palm tree lined parks of PHX!

Oh boy--there could be some trouble. You guys look like the cast from the Our Gang Comedy or the Young Rascals!

An dead ringer for the TV "Dennis the Menace!"

Sounds like a great event. I look forward to more pictures.

Loving cats does not mean hating dogs... sheesh.

I love dogs, too. Prefer living with cats, but dogs are wonderful.
