    Had a good lunch with a great bunch today here in Bozeman.  Attendees were Bill Whetstone, Maryann and Don Nesbit and Pat and Jim Godward.  No photos although one member had a camera with a humongous lens.  Seems we were all too close for the camera to focus or something like that and no one use...
