Yeah.  Amazing, isn't it?  I remember those pics well, Ed!  I've been lucky
enough to have met many of you over the years, whether it be the Historics
at Monterey in '99 or Pikes Peak in '97 and '98, Steamboat Springs, numerous
track events throughout the country, or just for the heck of it ;-)

But there are many of you that I haven't met, but I still feel a kinship.
Who would have guessed ten years ago?  Certainly not me.
