Dave, think the good news is...you start a new job...congrats.

I certainly hope you can make it...but should that not be, we are so grateful to you for being a fateful attendee in years past...and you would be missed.... hope things continue to work out for you and again...good to see the news.

Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving as well.

Our #2 Dodge won the Nascar Sprint Cup Championship this year & I'll either at the awards banquet in Las Vegas or at home watching it this Friday. I hope to see everyone next year.
