A big thanks to Nick Doucette, my future son-in-law, for all his help on this project.

  1. Whoa! This is magical. And you, sir, are a steely-eyed space man!

    1. I'm going to take that as a compliment, right? Yes, definitely a compliment.

    2. Definitely! John Aaron and I salute you!

  2. How cool ....... can you send Nick over?
    Seriously, that's great.
