Sorry Nate, they lost. (Nate was hoping Atlanta would win). Denise and Nate motored down to Sarasota Bay last Friday night!!!! Neither had done it before alone, but they made it!!!! I had to teach MBE’s in Deland on Saturday but Denise and Nate did not wait for me and took off. I drove down Saturday night. Nate drove the car back and Denise and I came back tonight. We ran into a 15 minue rain but it was nice and warm and we had no trouble. We but have to work tomorrow. I have added three new pictures (from Denise’s brother Charles) on the picture page.

NATHAN HAS DECIDED TO JOIN THE COAST GUARD!

This was the message when I came home last night. He will get a $2000 bonus for going in!
