It was a VERY great honor and pleasure for my Dear Hubby and me to spend Saturday, November with 21 in the company of Mike Rucci , BigD , and Lori Deiter at the Conowingo Dam in Maryland. Thank you so much, Mike, for encouraging us to visit here … and thanks to all three of you for your wonderful friendship and all the laughs and for putting up with my little-girl squeals of delight!!! I don’t think I’ve been that excited since I was a kid!!!!!!
