How was camp (need I ask!)?
Busy busy busy here - working two jobs, researching, teaching, and keeping my wife happy! How many are intersted in the Fuzhou trip next year? (perhaps you could put out a request for a "show of hands" (as it were) so that I can have some idea. As I said before, it would be nice to be there for the old man's 94th birthday, but January might prove a bad time, what with the family committments and work-loads of the American people. February might prove more agreeable for them.
I would suggest Okinawa first THEN Fuzhou (for resaerch/ammunition purposes). In consideration of expenses, the other option might be to forgo Oki altogether, and focus solely upon Fuzhou.Drop me a few lines When time permits.
