Forgot to share it here. I forget that not everyone is in the Facebook group sometimes. Well here goes.

I got a mystery package from Mike in the mail yesterday. I didn't remember ordering anything from him recently and thought "errr maybe you did order something and just don't remember it". When i opened the package i saw the note and Sagan and my brain almost could not comprehend what was going on. I stared at the letter and the JLU with disbelief for a good 15 minutes. I could not help but shed tears of joy. This JLU is the only one that i never had ANY leads on at all ever. No friend of friends or cousins or girlfriends or wives that had it that aren't in the print community. Just none. Bert and Ernie have eluded me so far as well but i do know at least 4 people with it even if they aren't willing to budge.

I started this goal a few years ago knowing that this one would probably be the one that never materialized. I can't thank Mike enough for the assist/gift. :notworthy: :pint: :clap:

PS. YES i need to vacuum that rug

You can drymount right on off along with the people who did vote for him. Everyone here knows what a big supporter of Bernie I am. And I absolutely have that feeling of "I told you so". It's one of the most tragic things about this for me. "All that could have been..." But come election day, and faced with the choice between the potential for this tragedy that's now unfolded, and voting for Hillary, i didn't like it, but i did what was necessary and went with Hillary. Felt dirty doing it, but it was a thousand times better than the alternative. And for you to celebrate that outcome, simply out of spite. SMH
I have a profound sadness for the dark turn our country has taken. And to dance around while it all burns down... drymount off.
