← The November 2017 'Bushy Tales' is online at: All issues are up to date.
Hello, Fellow Bobcats,
Thanks to each of you who have taken the time to submit photos and articles for the newsletter. Please keep them coming! I can only use what I receive from you. Those of you with an eye for detail will notice that the first 2017 issue was Issue #1 of Volume #17. Gary ran the Issue and Volume numbers from the very first issue, which was March 2001. Each month I was going crazy ensuring that I had the correct Volume and Issue numbers. Now they will correspond with the year and month of the year. Some editor types will think this is heresy. I think it is practical.
I am sending ONLY issues of “Bushy Tales” newsletters in .PDF format now.
Pat and I are concerned about the welfare of those in our group who have been impacted by the terrible brushfires in Northern California. Some 6,000 homes have been lost and 3,500 businesses destroyed. If you, or anyone you know, has been impacted directly by these fires, please let Pat or me know. We pray that none of our group have lost their lives in the disaster. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out for all those affected by Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey and Hurricane Irma. These storms have created an absolutely horrible mess and impacted thousands of lives. It will take years for many these folks to recover from their huge losses, if they are able to do so at all.
Another month keeps rolling around; so, Any thoughts you have about your time in England and Bushy Park, no matter how brief, send them along. Don’t worry about punctuation, or even grammar, Pat Owen is outstanding at sorting these things out. Any photos you have and would like to share, send them along, too. You can just take a picture of your old photo and email it to me using your smart phone. I can do the rest. No computer skill required, No scanning necessary.
Anyone who wishes to see any/all back issues of “Bushy Tales”, can do so at the London Central High School, RAF Bushy Park web site, here: http://BushyPark.org maintained by Bob Harrold (60).

This is email message [excerpt] was sent by Gary on 30Jul16 with the July '16 issue of “Bushy Tales" - "The May 2016 issue of “Bushy Tales” presents a few tributes to Gerald "Gary" Earl Schroeder (14Nov36-26Mar16.) He was truly amazing. His compassion and generosity to others is beyond what many of us can comprehend. As you can clearly see in the attached tribute by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary folks with whom he worked, he was not your average Coast Guard Auxiliary member! Gary was all in with everything he did. Those of you who are moved to write a tribute to Gary, please do so and send it along. The tribute edition of 'Bushy Tales' dedicated to Gary Schroeder is at: May_2016_issue.pdf (.pdf)" -- Your Acting Editor, Bill Rumble.
