Please Dale, indulge me with a little bandwidth here:
For all you CR guys, some of whom I know personally, some of whom I know from transactions, some of whom I know from friendly correspondence, and all of whom I know from the list, I really thank those who met a couple of weeks ago in Solana Beach. I was trying to make it there myself, but logistics and time became the issue as I was NW of you in SB. Anyway, I was totally unaware of my wife's contacting someone (Chuck, I think) who made it down there to sign a happy birthday remembrance for me. This week I turned 50, and even though I still feel 25, she had this incredible surprise birthday party for me. One of the three biggest surprises I received was the signed birthday placemat from all you guys gathered there! She did this on a lark, knowing that, since I spend as much time as I do on the CR list with you guys, that you must be quite special to me. Believe me, this list is a special place!
Thanks, again. For those of you that I do not know in person, I really will try to see you sometime soon, maybe in Pasadena....
