hi,

4 familiar faces, you probably mean Dennis (Big Mind).
if i win - please donate the cushion to the folks in Carrshield.

ps: i spent some time there about 40 years ago, back then there were only 5 residents (if memory is to be trusted), only one of them is still active in the OBC.

if you or anyone else ever decide to spent time at Eihei-ji, you might want to practice climbing stairs.

Congratulations!!

I took it to Throssel Hole once, but they threw me out for it still being DARK maroon! (colourfast material lol)
