want to know, if you really are going into the Yosemite in July, as we might join you, and perhaps in August - we can see Colorado - what are your places? Remember me most [kindly?] to your wife, and the daughters. We thought of you much in Florida, depressing State!! Where we flew for two days for my husband's relaxation after a very busy winter.
