Re: More Hamilton "Stuff"

Susan, it was great seeing you in York. Now that the pleasantries are out of the way, I want your clock! I've cleared a space on my desk 8-) We only had to drive a gazillion miles to see each other, even though we live in the same state. :P Great stuff. Love the "Darth" clock! Thanks! I guess I rea...
