Thanks, Bill. It was great seeing you in person. That's one good thing about owning the store, I've been able to meet many of the rare birds on this list. Hope I see a few more before we fade into the mists.

BTW - If any list members need a signed copy of George's HELL TO PAY feel free to contact me offlist. Shipping is free on this one for rara-avians.
