      I've been trying to think of everything I can do to get out of work and at least get to
      Gloversville for half the day plus dinner!  There's always the chance I'll be fired and
      I'll have the day off!

      Jeeez Gino, your absence will be a big loss for the group; what can the belly shot photo look like without you?  Wish you could find a way to finagle it; looks like we'll enjoy a good size meeting with some new faces and our wives can participate in the city wide garage sale, looking for FJ&G items, while we look at train pictures.

      I'm glad to see that there is going to be a Get-Together after a year off.  I think the
      combo Rail-Day and FJ&G Get Together is the perfect fit!!!!  What stinks?  I have
      to work that whole weekend.  While you guys are enjoying the history of the FJ&G,
      I'll be sleeping and preparing for my night at Quad Graphics!!!
      I don't know who's coming, but I know I'll miss you all.  I'll even miss dinner at Paul's
      favorite resturant.
