hey there Gordon,

   Is there anything going on with the boat that you folks need help on? I have this week off. I'll head down to the museum Thursday to do something "productive" but can head north to grunt on The Bud.

   I hope all was good for Christmas and you got all you wanted...including time with family. Here's to a good new year too. 

   A friend of mine knows I love the old boats and gave me a Miss Thriftway hat he got at Chelan last summer.

Be cool.....chuck
