My thanks to all my relatives, (real, in-law, outlaw, honorary, shirt-tail & step) who visited me and my display. Special thanks to grandson Adam who flew in from Manhattan and niece Patty & her husband who drove up from Watervliet. Also to Jim, Jessica & Jason for help in setting up & tearing down.
I was honored to join all the other recipients of the Verlen Kruger Award for a group photo.
Also thanks to all of you Quiet Water types who looked over my stuff and visited. As I suppose is typical of an old man, I recognized a lot more faces than remembered names. The QWS is sort of like a class reunion every year. I measure my life not by birthdays but rather by whether I make the next Quiet Water Symposium. Hope to see you next March.
