CONGRATS New Red Hats!!!   ^:)^

And a special congratulations goes to Jerry for helping us revive Appleseed in El Paso. He's definitely stepped up big time and will make a fine Red Hat!!

Congrats guys!  Sorry I couldn't be there to be a part of this :( but I know it's well deserved for both of you!!!!

Poor Jerry, he doesn't know if he's a Texican or New Mexican. I say we annex El Paso into NM or build a fence!  ++) ...O.L.

Oh come now, unlike our neighbors to the south, Texas and NM can be great neighbors.  El Paso may be a far flung Texas outpost, but we certainly need the help of our wonderful NM brethren.

That is until Jerry manages to whip together a few El Paso native orange hats  ~~:)

Howdy All,

Thanks for all the congratulations. It's taken alot of effort to get here and I know the journey is only beginning!

Here's to Jimi for all the good chow and munchies, and the camaraderie he brings to every shoot.

Thanks to every one who has worked me so far. I'm looking forward to much more in the future!!!!

Congrats y'all!!

Both of y'all are a fine addition to the program.

Maybe Texas/NM ought to merge and create a whole new country, with freedom and liberty for all.

And it was nice meeting Jimi at the last Midland Texas shoot a few weekends back. And Jimi, I'm definitely gonna have to get out to your neck of the woods and take you up on your offer of hospitality. I'd really like to see a ghost town.
