For Bob Carbone........

.....who is in California, but his heart in Massachusetts! A little bit ago, Bob wrote to scold me for not paying enough attention to Battleship Cove....especially his ship the USS Massachusetts. So guess where Maggie was today?

The 64th reunion of the USS Massachusetts BB-59.

I tried to video tape some stuff, so we'll see how that goes, but I spotted a guy filming the whole thing so I am going to try to get some of his stuff.

I introduced myself to CAPT John S Casey, USNR (Ret.) and I'll see if I can't get a copy of his remarks.

How'd I do baby?
