    Planning to be there, this time with my lady on Sunday. Her fist time. And Lisa, thank you and your family for graciously opening up you're home to our community and offering us such a comfortable place to meet, engaging in discussion and learn more about this shared path less taken in life. As a side note, wondering if others in our group will be heading out to Wicked Faire on Saturday. We will be going (our first time) and it's always nice to connect with others and enjoy a fun outing together. J & J
