Kalimon, what a nice house, in even a nicer setting! Thanks for the offer, I haven't been down your way in probably 8 or 9 years. That was when I took my now wife on a tour of the nicest parts of Colorado. I don't know if you ever stop in the Newberry's store in Cimarron, but if you do, say hi to Jimmy for Scott Mossman. You truly live in one of the most beautiful places I know of.

Much too unsightly for a bump.

Some of the HIGHEST ugly spots ever.

Yuck.

Nederland will be hearing from me.
