Got a message back that it was being made and was really pretty. Let me share with you fellows the rest of the story. Linda had cancer in her right leg about 17 years ago and had to have it removed at the hip. Jim the man who own the printing company - his father was being treated at the same place as Linda - MB Anderson Clinic in Houston, Tx. They became friends and have kept in touch. A year ago her husband was diagnosed with cancer of the colon spread over into his liver and lungs. I go to church with Linda, her husband and three teenagers. Her car got in very bad shape and some of us had it fixted till there was nothing to fix. Jim found out she needed a car and found a nice Mercury SUV - made the down payment and sent to her here in Cleveland. We were visiting Linda and her husband the other night and Jim called. She told him about the banner I wanted and he told her that anyone who was a friend of her's would get the banner free. How is that for a heart warming story. There are still some very good people in this old troubled world. riceone.

will be looking forward to that roy, im really sad i didnt make it. i had fully intended to do it this year, i will next year for sure. i wont let myself get cornered without a backup.

i do so want to see that magnificent collection and the display that you all put on, i know its fantastic from the past years photos.

i also would love to shake the hands of as many of these great people i meet here every day as i can, its fine to visit here, but its like a phone call, there is something about a face to face that makes it all real -- i need to meet don and i need to meet you, and i need to meet robert, all for very personal reasons but i also need to meet all the other great people here for the simple reason of ill be a better person for knowing them in person.
