: Glad you enjoyed the event from the perspective of a visitor. I was there and sorry we did not meet. Matter of fact I was at the Indian singing and all in the evening. I probably noticed you somewhere but did not know it. And I talked to Ken on a couple of occasions as well. He is doing remarkably well considering what he went through and it was great to have him back in the fold.
: I will be at Fort Niagara this weekend commanding the 20th anniversary of the event and 240th of the actual siege. Of course, at Ticonderoga, they celebrated the 240th of Amherst taking the fort from the French. Got to say, 1759 was a great year.
: Take care and hopefully next time you are about we will get to meet.

Thanks very much for that. Rich and Elaine had suggested I try to find you, but my emails to you were returned last week, and then I got so busy preparing for that trip and my current trip (Monday was NYC to Delaware to Newark to Oslo, tomorrow is Oslo to Madrid) that I didn't follow up for the right email. Anyway, I'm sure I saw you without seeing you, if you know what I mean.
At the campfire, I was standing up on the top of the slope with Clabair and Donna. I did have appropriate headgear and clothes so as to be acceptable to the situation. Unless you saw someone with little silver Ben Franklin glasses, I guess I blended in.
We won't make Niagara but Donna and I are hoping to make the August Encampment at Crown Point. Please let me know if you are going to be there and I hope we can find you then.
