      Thank you very much Bill. Those are just wonderful comments and ones that I
      would be challenged to live up to. In case some of the folks might be
      wondering about the "anniversary", it was on this date in 1999 that the CWWT
      was first formed. I thought that I would be lucky to get at most 30
      members. I only had less than a dozen that were firmly committed when I
      first set up the group. Lordy, was I wrong on that beauty. Although we
      lost a few members on that last "dust up" we still have 583 and going
      strong. Thanks to you all. You are just a fine bunch of folks. Sometime
      in the future, we might want to think about having a CWWT Muster. We have a
      lot of folks in here that I am sure could enlighten us on many a battlefield
      if we all wanted to get together. Just something to think about for future
      events.

      I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
      Dick (a.k.a. Shotgun)
