Courage



Dear Colin
I think it`s time to thank you.
If you did not have the courage to tell us,
it possibly took a lot more time before we heard
about it.So also my thank`s to you brother in law.

Reacting on `11 september` i remarkt we (the HAM `s)
can do `things`.This ,i think,showes that.

You triggerd something,that i realy enjoyed!
Thank`s!
