Just a suggestion...

I'm pretty sure I just resent the one that Chaplian sent me. laugh

I like how I sent it to NY from the Chicago area, and then you sent it back to the Chicago area.

WAIT!
I think I gave it to Mr. CrownBen!
I remember meeting with him at the Clinic's parking lot and we jabbered for a little while before my doctor's appointment...

As you were...

Carry on...

Yes you did, and yes we did. Then I took it on a siteseeing tour in Milwaukee.

I thought the format of the traveling keychain was just fine. It was neat to see what little thing everybody added to it- and the various bottlecaps. People I explained it too thought it was cool too.

That box did work quite well. I re-used it when I sent it off to... whoever. Maybe it's still in my PMs.
