This news story I found probably isn't about Lancer, but just sending well wishes in any event.

Wrong island - Manilla in on Mindaro, I think; Lance lives down on Bohol.

 

 

Is there no way I can bribe you into checking by once in a while?

Ok, then that's good to know-I did not know exactly where Lancer was based; the story is still problematic for the person of interest in the story, but good for Lancer. Thank you and have a good day. :)

 

*edit: ah, good, the Christmas Smileys are still working here. :)

Thanks DC, we live on the central island of Bohol. Consider the difference, a major city like NY or LA would be Manila, high crime. A small town on the Oregon coast compares to Bohol, low crime. Anything is possible, but we're pretty safe here, compared. Really appreciate your concern my friend. :)

 

Sorry you won't be around pal.

 

Edit: Plus, I'd have just shot the pipe wielding guy. :D
