  9. Hey Phil -

    What a great time you all must have had!

    Chicago is an amazing city, with so much public art and so many photo possibilities. To be there with fine weather is a bonus!

    Thanks for sharing these.

  10. Gentlemen, and Lady.. Marie.. !
    It was a genuine Joy, an Honor, and a Privledge to meet you all who I've come to know, admire and consider as friends.
    Frank especially, thank you so much for extending me the invitation.
    Folks WE all had a blast! Many of your ears should be ringing, over lunch and laughs more than a few names came up.

    We had a small, but elite group yesterday and I really enjoyed myself. It was outstanding to meet new friends and to embrace those who we already knew. Not a moment of awkward silence, just a wonderful time that lasted all day. So glad that the weather cooperated so we weren't forced to be indoors in a museum all day. Stopping for a luncheon with MarieBoyer was such a good time, the conversation was so enjoyable, only wish that she could have spent the day along with us exploring the city. The worst part of the day was saying goodbye, but there will certainly be future get-togethers.
  15. I do love the shot of Frank with water coming out his ear!! No *wonder* he got into fire fighting! :biggrin:
