How's it going Bill.

I just wanted to than you for leaving the generous comments on my blog site - I really do appreciate it.

Great work with detailing all the events and activities for G.P's 50th Anniversary Weekend - I plan on stopping by for tea tomorrow, maybe check out the dance, and then cover 100 Flags on Sunday - if you like, you could meet up for some tea tomorrow and we could chat.
