    Well I guess my boat ride just took a big tumble on your list of exciting things you did on your vacation. And I bet the pilot of the helicopter didn't threaten you with having to push the copter like I threatened you with pushing the boat that was out of gas. But I did show you a castle and a place you would love to metal detect. (Guess we could use some night vision stuff! (remember the island)) Dang it, I was so looking forward to seeing the backside of the copter. Glad your having a good time but isn't it amazing how fast your vacation has gone? I have been back at work for 8 weeks since you left.

    Burdie,
    Flying a copter, very cool. Did you have a change of shorts with you once you were back on the ground?
    You two sure know how to have fun. I can't wait to see what you post next.
    Were you able to visit Dolly in Pigeon Forge? You may have even spotted her from that copter. No, those were not mountains.
    Take care,
    Doug
