Can't believe that on December 1 1989 I was standing under a tree at our offices wondering what the hell I was doing standing outside a century old building, never realizing for a second that I'd just found my life's work.

That tree is still here and so am I.*  Smile

Hey-you look good bald! Kinda Like Peter Lorre in MAD LOVE. or Kojak with glasses. Or the alien in FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE SPACE MONSTER!

Thats a good thing! I look-and about the same height-as cousin Itt.
