I am honored to have been a part of this itinerary! It was such a fun surprise to have you and your friend stop by. You are definitely an excellent detective, and I love it that you had the courage to walk up to the "workers" in my front yard and ask if I was home.

The beer and tools were much appreciated. Hope to see you again sometime!
