Happy Bucks
Spenser told of a great day of fishing off New Bedford with a shark getting most of one of his fish! His Daughter is doing well in the business and young Spenser Jr is taking over Mark's construction company.
Dennis did well in a dance contest in Vegas. He will be visiting his daughter in Monterey, He will also be teaching International Finance at URI this fall.
