Happy Tuesday. Sorry I've been MIA of late. I was on vacation visiting Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Glacier National Parks for 10 days and then came home to no power or Fios.

Are notes - Andrew Harrison - #2, Aaron Harrison #4, Jermaine Lawrence #15, BeeJay Anya #20, Tyler Ennnis #22, Dominic Woodson #29, Knenedy Meeks #40, Rysheed Jordan #47.
