guests! CARL DUNCAN introduced his brother-in-law Bill Foerster. Bill has expressed an interest in joining. DON MARSHALL brought an "old" ex air force buddy, Barry Layton; and Gus SZALA
introduced Larry DuBois. Keep the guests coming! They make good members. Of course hose of us who introduce guests always run the
possibility of being fined. This time it was HARDER who fined MARSHALL for politically
incorrect references to Barry Layton's ability to once again get into an airplane cockpit.

"Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
"Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some."
"None is more impoverished than the one who has no gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy."
