Thanks, those who have been there know what it's like those yet to get to this milestone will soon know, Thanks for all the encouragement directly and indirectly for I was encouraged by all who submitted to this forum.
Dear Lauren
Most of the White people in my family tend to be the Black sheep you will however see them when I post a video. and alas my adopted dad Brian, Bruce's dad lives so far it was impractical to invite him.
Woooo what a thrill I will add some more pics as the become available. :D :D
