Red, I'm glad I got to know Nancy and you over the last three years. They were good times. I hope to see you around . No matter what they call it, to me it will remain, "Nan's Hideaway".

Meantime, take care of yourself and remember to stop by; I'll be looking for you at the old place.

Mike (the Polack).
