Test comment

Too bad we did not hook up while you were in the North, next time for sure. Keep us posted, and we will do same. Just shopping for a terra yacht, 40 foot Prevost for the next adventure. Most ground fuel within 100 ft of the house is in piles for a winter burn, we should be in good shape should the blazes make it in here, fingers crossed. Say hi to anyone and everyone. Sure do love the long days.
