Just think of the celebrations we could have after each successful Closing, Don!  A real gruesome twosome ... And I'll keep throwing it your way ... I CAN do loans in all 50 states.  I realize it's not a fit for all, but for those that might be comfortable ... I hope you'll keep me in mind.

Thanks for always saying such kind things ...

Sally and David:  This is a long-running event .. decades old.  They have it down pat .. and right.  Very family-oriented in many ways ... but enought for the adults too.  We'll both hope for good weather ...
