Larry,

 

I'm pretty sure that Jay and I will not be at the Sano. We both have a lot of conflicting activities going on around that time and just can't do it all.

 

Jay's new house in FL will be finished (hopefully) so they can move it in early September and he and the lovely Marilynn have a trip to Alaska during Sano time. 

 

I'm involved in running the JCNA's International Jaguar Festival the second week or so of October as well as judging at the Atlanta Concours d'Elegance the first week of that month.

 

Next year for sure...

Happy ... er, wait.

 

Thanks for the opportunity to answer the roll call of who was on Slotblog this fine morning! And revealing who actually takes time to read the posts!

 

It is a great opportunity to thank you, Greg, for your invaluable resource to the participants of this fringe hobby. Having met you several times, I couldn't wish for anyone better to run this asylum of which I am a member. an inmate. You have the proper respect for the hobby, it's people and a fair hand in running the forums.

 

Happy birthday almost 10 months early!
