It was posted yesterday that my commentary was missed. I haven’t commented for awhile.

Six years ago I was diagnosed with “Post Polio Syndrome”.  I had polio at the age of 2 and children under 5 are destined to have the syndrome by the time they reach 55, I was 80. I had reconstructive surgery at the age of 7 and again when I  was 15 and until now enjoyed a normal physical life. I wasn’t having any problems until two years ago when my right leg and foot began to have problems that restricted my mobility. In March of this year I was still able to make my way to the shoreline for my pictures and today I’m restricted to pretty much whatever I can take from the drivers seat of the Jeep. I am unable to seek out interesting pictures for the “Report” and for that reason I suppose commenting hasn’t been important.

I’m looking forward to the day that Jim takes over. Until that time I will report as best I can.

I’m a little late in replying, but I too wanted to let you know how much the Leland Report means to me. If I miss checking the report for a day or two or more, I make sure to catch up on all the ones I missed — as I am doing today. I have been following the report for years. Thank you for sharing Leland and the surrounding area with those of us who only vacation there and dream about being there every other day of the year. Every picture is precious! Thoughts and prayers coming your way.

Keith, we’ve been following fans for years. Any picture you take, from wherever you take it, is beautiful! We had the pleasure of meeting you and Biscuit 3 yrs ago. We were in the ‘Biscuit Report’…a special day we will never forget. We still look at that picture! Keep taking pictures from wherever u can, Keith. You’ve made many people very happy with them. Take care, and kisses to you and Biscuit. Thank you
Murray and Yvonne

Love all your pictures!! I check in daily all the way from California. The Leland Report makes me feel like I get to drive through Leland every morning. What a blessing! Thank you for continuing your posts. It’s a much-appreciated glimpse at a very special spot. Wishing you – and your Jeep – good health. 🙂

Thanks for all that you have done to bring a beautiful place to so many people. I remember first learning about polio reoccuring in a person’s later years. It was when it happened to the jazz bassist Charlie Haden. A real double whammy.
Take care
