I spent the 4th of July hanging out in Texas and Arkansas. Business and pleasure and my friend Lyn Cathay who owns a great travel agency and a boat. He picked me up and we had a wonderful time together on that boat. Lynn and I go back over 30 years of knowing each other..check him out (he’s the one on the left. Lyn is a special guy and to know him is to love him. His wife Judy is Vice President of Global Brand Marketing Hampton hotels. Check Lyn out at http://www.tripfinder.com/newweb/index.html. The handsome guy on the right is Leon who I have also known since I was 16 years old. His sister and my sister set us up for a blind date and we have been friends every since. He too is very special and really like a part of our family. He has the best yellow plum trees on his farm and I picked some great plums and ate them all. No I didnot get sick...I never do. I had a great holiday.
