Just a few things...

Dave Update: He is in VA now, awaiting their departure. Everything is still up in the air. They don't have any confirmed times and they still don't know where they will land first. It will definitely NOT be a direct flight. He does not know what he will need or want until he gets there! I will be posting a "wish list" periodically for him and his buddies. Dave is always well taken care of (thanks to family and friends) but sometimes his buddies get nothing. If you feel the desire to send items, you can send them to the address below and Dave will gladly disperse the goods!
He really likes sharing with the guys who never get anything. They always appreciate home baked goods and hot sauce!! I will let you know more details as I get them!!

HORRIBLE picture (took it with the phone and the lighting was not working for me)---BUT, I got my ring back!! We dropped it off with a family jeweler in Bend this summer and I am finally getting to wear it again!! We had the band on the bottom added and sautered to the 1918, Great Gramma Phillips' original. We also had them rebuild the band on the side to strengthen the original ring. You can't see it but I am SURE it was quite a task!! He did a good job!!
