The young lady has seen the world go from horse and buggy to space flight, from where a trip of a hundred miles could take days to now an hour or two, from high tech being telegrams and player pianos to smart phones and Ipods. Happy Brithday and many more.

Please tell Ms. Cooper I caught her a delicious bass.

If you want, I will send the pic to your phone, but you will have to PM me your number.
