So what's next, Bob?  Are you up for another party?  Your 65th Anniversary is coming up in 2016.
Happy, happy birthday and many more.  I loved flying to D.C. with you, first eating lunch at Bassins and then doing the town.  That was back when Ike was president and Elvis was "king."  And we got to work on the Stratocruiser.  Grand Memories.
Best wishes for many more from your old flying partner, Anne (Lady Skywriter) Billingsley Kerr
