I had such a wonderful surprise this summer when I went to a new market in Prescott Valley, AZ. I parked by a truck with a bumper sticker advertising the reunion of the Salt Lake City. I was so excited, but had the presence of mind to leave my name and address under the windshield wiper, and Cyrus T. Michael
of Mayer, AZ. left a note for me.
