Hi George!

Thanks for the note - much appreciated!

I'm hoping that you will stop by when in the area so we can meet you and show you some of the cool stuff that's here from time to time.  

A month or so ago we had two 1936 L-OOs in for repairs and they were both only a few serial numbers apart too.  

Hope that all is well with you my friend.
