RE: 2004



Three weeks before the presidential election sure is a poor (crazy) time to 
be in Washington, D.C. The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum is a great 
place to visit. Hope you folks have fun. We might see you in 2005. Linda 
(KF4SMS) really enjoyed the tour of Casa Loma in Toronto this year.
