Dick, thank you for all of your kind words and I for one echo Gary's
sentiments.  After hearing some of the great stories that you, Kevan and
Jane told, it kind of makes me wish that I had been around back then.  I
would have really enjoyed hanging out with you guys.  As I mentioned to
you, the whole DJ thing was a different lifetime for me and I've done so
much more since then.

I just have one question.  How did you know that I have a warped sense of
humor?  Jenny usually makes me keep it on the "down low" when we are in
public.  I must not be doing a very good job of that.
