    Tyler-
    My brown boots and I like your resume. Perhaps we will walk all over it some day, it would be a nice time. Meanwhile, the man in the background is screaming at the paint and I am afraid I can not concentrate. I will have to follow up later. I think that you should remember that gifts cross language barriers. Buy a stranger a beer and see what comes of it.
