    Hooray! I never thought I’d be on the receiving end of these updates, but I’m really grateful for them. It’s the next best thing to being there. Wait–wasn’t that a tag line from a photo commercial from the 70s? Have fun guys–and I’ll look forward to further peeks into what you’re seeing! Meanwhile–what a nice pastoral fire curtain!!
