Cool.

Encourage him to take an MSF class.

Is the Col. Group heading up together. If so I would want to tag along. Not sure who else from my neck of the woods is heading up.

I hope y'all get a good turnout tomorrow! That morning leg is going to be a little too fresh for these old bones, I think, with no 'lectrics. I'll just have to suffer through riding in the woods around the house looking at stuff like the below. It's a tough life, but someone has to live it.

If any other Midlanders can't make the trek to Anderson tomorrow, the Kensington Mansion is decorated for the holidays and is having a Christmas Open House from 10-2:30. They also have guided tours on Thurs-Sat through January 8th (closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day).
