Ned Young has an open house every year around thanksgiving and Christmas. I have been lucky enough to go the past two years. I even got to shake his hand, and thank him personally for what he does. I'm afraid I got a bit silly last year telling him I wouldn't wash the hand he shook. and so on. He Called me Mr. Silly and Gave me a big hug. Then I said I couldn't wash the sweater I was wearing now. He signed my 2007 Calendar" To Mr. Silly" This year he actually remember who I was. "You're that silly guy." We chatted a bit. My sister bought a 2008 calendar and had him sign it for me for my birthday present. You can see below what he wrote.
