Brian!

Nice to meet you on the spotlight! You and I were apparently born in the same year (1969) if you are 40 on the nose... I am too!

Thanks for submitting the spotlight!

I'm in the spotlight? Wow! That's great! I think I've read them all and I am tickled that the spotlights on me.
Mike, I noticed we were the same age when reading yours. September of '69 to be exact. Same age, both like to revive the abused Cubs.
Fellas, I am really close to finishing all the work I'm going to do to the Demo this fall. I have taken more photos and have a story to tell and will do that Wednesday nite because tonite George Jones is playing in Ottawa and I'm bringing my wife on a date nite. She deserves it.
Cecil, thanks for your hard work putting this together.

Brain:

Nice read, sure enjoyed it. Got to know you a bit better.

I am in a funk with the Sens ... they let Shawn go.... so no more family on the team. Oh well, guess I will have to cheer for the Bruins again :lol: :!:
