  1. Wonderful, Brett! Congratulations. You are one of the most active of Northfielders and lover of all things Northfield. You well deserve this (and to be roasted at the DJJD banquet:-) Getting tickets for that!
    P.S. I have renewed motivation to finish the Archer House painting and show it at a June RMF.
