  1. So many related through a communicate and every keep a manufacture and market of tools in this used latest model also available. its new item also the business partner formed the leather man.

  2. I’m wondering how this packing list is working out for you. It looks like you pared it down pretty well before you left. That’s probably good, especially since you have to make the big schlep to Nguti soon, Is there anything you wish you had left at home?

    Please be sure to let us know what you need for you permanent station. Even if I send it now, it can’t get to you before you relocate, so I might as well mail a box soon so you know you have another package on the way.

    I can’t wait to see your new place. You must be excited. We love you!
