From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 10/13/13 - "RE: Kathy":
I know you will think I'm a pain in the rear end, but I noticed on your Sail On Sailor edition that my sister, Kathy, was not on the birthday recognition on the 18th of October. It was then I realized that you had mistakenly put her birthday in the month of September. I hope you would be kind enough to change this and I thank you in advance.
|Thank you, Wayne! I'm so sorry about that! I know I always confuse April and August, but I don't generally mix up September and October! I've fixed this now!|
