I forgot to tell you when we stopped by yesterday for ice cream that my 90-year-old Mom can not go by your place without getting her cone!


She is a committed Moosebirds fan – she tells us when we go up to the cabin in Buyck she has no idea where we are but she sure knows when we get close to your place! Thanks!!
