I’d like to send belated Happy Birthday greetings to our very own special correspondant, Captain Larby. The reason you haven’t heard much from him lately is because he is working on a very special assignment, one which takes precendence over our little web log. I always feel young with that geezer Captain Larby around, but then I remember that LTJ is just a young buck and I go back to crying in my beer. Nevertheless, happy 29th, Lars! Can’t wait to see you and the future Mrs. Captain Larby in a couple of weeks.
