So, you guessed it, wrong contacts in each eye! Can still see see "fine" overall, but my near vision goes to hell. I thought it was just the lighting and me getting older. Maybe it was that too. Doh...
Great to see you again Kermit. I thought something was off, then again, we always have fun, so it was all good, and you helped a LOT!

By the way, I still owe a couple prizes to participants. If you were one of the winners, let me know and I will send them to you.

Oh, and who gave me ticket 28? You won a T-shirt from BeemerBoneyard.



LOTS of prizes and happy people from BBY swag!

It was good to see you too. Give me a buzz when you're down in my neck of the woods and we'll do dinner and catch up.

I could tell that you were going to be swamped. I was glad to help what little I did.

p.s. I threw that Dakar on the lift and tore into it for the first time last night. Whomever designed that thing must a been smoking crack or something. I love it though... :-)
