Loved your videos, Al. I remember many of the photos, but not others, and the Christmas music was really nice.

But what were you poking Lena with? Oh I didn't really say that. That bison would have scared me a lot but it didn't seem to scare the two of you very much.

Excellent, and highly entertaining. DW flipped when she saw the Bison! Nice job on the music too. It's got a good beat and you can dance to it.

If only I had a tenth the creativity and talent you do, I'd be a happy man.

Add my best wishes for the season. Thanks for all you contribute to the board, Al.
