thanks to everyone who came to our (mine and jenny's) 25th anniversary 80s dance party last saturday night, and thanks for all the cards & well wishes we've received over the last few days. ALOT of the homer's crowd were at the shindig including jim and louise mathis (without them there would be no homer's).
