Happy Toujours Pret father's day to all.

Outside of being housebound for the last3+ months and havenot got a haircut yet, I've been working on our Veteran's Day program.

For Memorial Day our theater was closed and the last minute they had me make it an hour long so they could loop it on our community TV every hour for three days.
