Wow. It wears me out just thinking about all the things you've been doing.

Thanks for the update.

Well, on to the next step: We dropped the Keast's in KC last evening, after dinner at KC Masterpiece.

In about the time it takes to build a small airplane, their tickets were re-written. It only took two ticket agents and three hours, and the ticket package is updated (minus a staple big enough to hook it all together).

It was a whirlwind week for us--we had a great time!
