I wish to thank Kurt, Olivia, Sam, Zach, Mea, and George for their hospitality and attention to our needs. We had a good time up in White Bear Lake. Minnesota, at your house. It was nice to be at Mea's birthday party. She just turned one year's old. Bob Mattson was also great to be with. Bob, Kurt and the boys all went swimming at the hotel pool. We had some good meals at their house. Bob had a great idea of bringing some old cardboard boxes for the children to play with. Sometimes the most simple of items make the best games in the mindset of children. I hope that everything goes well with all of you. Thank you very much for everything.
