My cousin Dewey

Well he isn’t Dewey any more he is called Howard. All his life he was Dewey, ‘tis hard to get used to calling him Howard.

Anyway he was a sailor, then went to work in San Francisco for the CBI (Calif. Bureau Of Investigations), I think that is right.  Anyway he is retired and living in Las Vegas. I think secretly he is working on a ‘system’ that will work in the Casino’s there.  At present is is ‘intentionally’ losing every night to set them upSurprised smile.  But do not tell them, it is a secret.

He really isn’t such a bad guy, fun to be around but cannot talk plain. I guess at what he says. He has  been back East for a couple weeks. Howard is the one guy who keeps up with what is happening in the family. Many times he has notified me of an illness or death of some one here in NC or SC from SF or LV.

Anyway we had breakfast together  the day he left and Shirl took him to the Airport. The waitress comes over calls him by name and hugs him.

I asked “How long have you know the waitress?”

“About 5 minutes, while I was waiting for you!”  I worry about my cousin.

Anyway he is always interested in my health and well being.  He is always sending me stuff for “OLD FOLKS”, what to eat, how to exercise etc. Well today it was ‘Hey Jack, click on this site. It is something to keep seniors occupied. (Honest his graphics run along the lines of our friend Jimmy, the Miami Outlaw. At times the site would embarrass my mama, but this one was safe.)  Just move your cursor, once the site is there.'>" href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"<>

Tell me what you think, did it keep you entertained?

Thanks for coming this way.

Howard had a good time. His job
was very interesting..He was in
charge of keeping crime scene evidence locked up.

I think it is his job to keep up with family..he is searching our family history. More power to him...
