Hello Everyone,

Other KMS members are taking care of the Lawn Show so I have today off.

Here is an e-mail I got today, which the sender said I could share and I
will since he is an Arizona resident. I get a few like e-mails a month,
likely due to what I wrote in 2003, linked below.


Would be nice if they took the Crater away from the Barringer family and
made it a National Park.

Nininger also felt this way, shown here:
