Phittie is the guy I called cute, or was it adorable? Maybe beefcake?

Dang it, I'm too old to remember.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. I learned a great deal from these great, enthusiastic teachers!! It is nice to be made comfortable enough to ask questions without the fear of ridicule. Really a great bunch of people all around today. Thanks again to Wayne and his wife for allowing us there and being such sweat hearts to boot! Can't wait for tomorrow!
