Before I forget, I want to thank everyone for the personal Christmas cards that you all sent. We certainly do appreciate your thoughtfulness So, did you catch my error on the front page? I didn't until I got ready to file the master. (Hope there are not any more as glaring as that one!) Yep, I forgot to put the year. Maybe I don't want it to be 2009!
