Happy belated TG everyone. Don and I were at my sister's at Lake Arrowhead CA after doing a job for NM state parks in Las Cruces and one for a fella in Anza CA. Met Terry Osypowski (I think that's the spelling) and checked out his optics lab. perty cool.

Scotty, I didn't see on the site about recoating mirrors. Can you point me in that direction?

He just got the vacuum chamber and just about has it up and running. He'll be able to do up to 24" IIRC. I'd guess he's just not gotten around to putting it on his site yet. You could shoot him an e-mail.

Yeah, a couple of the guys were asking me about BYO and were looking at the photos from when you constructed ours in Ohio. Their new dark site is really coming along and I'm looking forward to seeing it. Of course you know the door is always open for you guys. I have a couple blow up mattresses and a spare bed here. Stephy could come over too if you think you'll have time for us all to get together!

Great! We'll have to get with John Davis too. He's up the road just north of Lampasas.

Gosh, Scotty, that sure would be nice of you to come to Texas for Erika's and my birthdays! Isn't yours in February too, or am I thinking of someone else?

It certainly would. We need to find a way to get my February birthday buddy, Scott Kroeppler, over here too. His is the 17th and I'd like to surprise him with my own rendition of "Downtown" while sweating to the oldies with Richard Simmons.

Now that would be the greatest birthday gift ever!

Speaking of oldies, have you seen The Amazing Spider Man yet? I watched it over the weekend and all I could think of was what a great actress Sally Field still is, but it's getting hard to picture her as The Flying Nun! Good gosh I'm gettin' old!

No, I haven't seen it yet but want to. There are a couple movies out there that I'd like to see. Speaking of feeling old, I just can't get over how expensive movie tickets are these days, even for matinees! When I was in my teens, I could see a movie for a dollar at the older theatre. If I saw a movie at the newer one, it was three dollars for an evening show.

Hey, it's a lot closer than coming to Ohio. You only have to drive across ONE state

Have you guys ever seen that movie with Goldie Hawn and Steve Martin, House Sitter? There's a scene where Goldie was frantically trying to keep up with an aerobics workout. I tell ya, that's not far from what it's really like! My feet are smoking and my arms feel like they'll swing right off my torso!

Haven't see that Erika, but I can picture you working out with Richard Simmons. Love it, probably as good as me trying to keep up with the older ladies at the Zumba class.
