Awesome I am glad it showed! I know one day some how we will be able to meet ....It will great to show up at one of those PA cbg festivals one day!..and I know what it must be like for you right now my dad was in the Marine corp for 22 years and he use to get deployed for 6 and 9 months at a time when I was young, I know what was like....the best part was when he would come back and bring trinkets...once he brought me and my brother a spent tank shell...watching him walk thru the front door with that thing was a real eye opener... I had never seen such a thing before!  and the c rations ....we use to take them to school!....anyways glad you liked the cd , ....the covers really are so much better than buying anything or using those white sheeves I use to use...they are really easy to make, and fun too!

Oh yeah, I meant to tell you a friend of mine is an avid trapper and he has an animal skin drying for me to try. It'll be the first that I haven't purchased from a catalog. We'll see how that goes.
