    Ken and all, Southbound on the interstate yesterday, somewhere north of Flint, I saw a yellow canoe with 'diamonds' loaded on top of a Mercedes, which I believe to be Edie and Jim, but they were moving faster than I so never got to talk with them. Maybe I join you all next year. Tom McCloud

    Dan, I had a hard time trying to upload any more pics on here. On FB you can make a whole album in much less time.
