I thought someone was speaking ugly of my buddy Stuart Hope in this month's World Aircraft Sales, by calling you a PUNC.  Well instead I found you were sharing with the world what you have done for us for a long time.  I am glad I have you in my corner to keep Pat and me straight.  I do rely on you and I want to say "Thank You"!
