Thanks for the belt Ken! It was really neat to meet you. I still have your rabbit spoon, I'll cherish it. I know you wish we could've stayed forever; I applied itch cream like no other, huh? Your life energy may have shifted, our bodies have a birth and death, but you definitely live. I wear your belt, use your spoon and Steve and I have fun remembering our visit. Love.
