Good morning, Paul... now you have me fantasizing about sitting in one of those two chairs and taking in the view.

Good morning Paul. Now that is a quote I could ponder on with a cup of coffee sitting in one of the chairs in your photo. Then again, if joined by Brian England, I would need an adult libation! Enjoy your day.

Having a view like that would certainly give me a reason to wake up each and every day to enjoy it.  I wonder if Wayne Martin spikes his morning coffee?

Hi Paul- you may need to add more chairs there because we all want to sit there. I do love this quote. When you think about it, the "why" is very important to us. b
