Unbelievable! Mr. Jack Norris just dropped off the book at my house in person! What a great gentleman he is. He even made some crib notes in the book for me.

We are neighbors, as it turns out.

Next time I come out there you are taking me over to his house. I love to hear stories from guys like that. It was obvious in the vid that he had some he wanted to tell.

Lucky dog!

Yeah, blew my mind! I had sent off a check the other day, and since he was doing something over at CSUN which is two blocks away he just decided to drop by the house. A really nice fellow and I think I am going to be able to get him to give a talk at my club. [sm=thumbup.gif]
