Great job Al, Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year to both you and Lena.

By the way, what was that at 3:30 on the video?

Nice Al, but why the dark space at the end? I know you didn't run out of photos.

I signed the guest book, but very nice pictures, many beautiful scenic places and well produced. Music was great, and your rendition of Take Five is excellent (love that song) - you've got some serious chops! Another year well lived, doesn't get any better. Merry Christmas to your clan as well...

That was a flaxseed meal pancake cooked at the campsite.

Thank heavens, I was frightened by that.

Nice card, and BTW you sound better than Dave Brubeck on Take Five.
