Good afternoon all first I want to wish everybody in the Capitol chapter a very merry Christmas. I had fully intended on being at the meeting however a last-minute phone call forced me into my duties as an automotive mechanic. I put rear brakes on my son's car and now it has passed inspection so all again is well I will see everybody sometime in the spring of the year as I will be out of the country. I should have lots of stories to share with you all upon my return take care and again all the best everybody in the new year. I will take care of the dues in the April meeting if all goes well and see you all in the spring.
