    Wow Bruce, good to hear from you!
    Dick, that first line, my eyesight is not as good as it used to be – does it say “Everything here is made from Scotch?”
    Thanks for the laughs too.

    • Hah, I wish Tony. Have been on the wagon when it comes to scotch and for that matter even wine. Hoping in a week or two that will change. Thanks Tony.
