    For being you…………….

  3. Good luck with LAC Gerry. Thanks again for entertaining us with your movies.

  4. Gerry I know how you felt when you saw DC as a whole. It’s fabulous…probably akin to me stepping onto the Royal Mile in Edinburgh and saying the same thing– ‘Wow!’

    I’m so happy you witnessed the Inauguration. Even as cold as it was, I’m sure it was a profound moment. Lucky you.

  5. Mr. Butler, I was happy to see you were able to be a part of this historic moment in history. I know what transpired in DC will inspire millions of people worldwide. This is what democracy is all about. Good luck with LAC……………..and stay warm.

    I’m a great admirer of you.

    Warmest regards,
