  1. Nice collection of photos. You misspelled HAGSTROM under the photo caption, by the way 🙂 I would like to order a print of that photo, IF YOU COULD CONTACT ME ABOUT THAT, I WOULD APPRECIATE IT.

  2. I got it corrected.

    No prob. send me your e-mail and I’ll send you some Hagstrom photos after I return from vacation.

  3. Thanks Dan. Zero2Sixtyb4u@hotmail.com is my email. Enjoy sunny Florida. I am in “sweltering Atlanta” myself, lol 😀
