Being in the Mayor's office, they want you to be out there and although I'm not a liaison. I was, I had a kind of a more function of criminal justice but because I liked the community, so I would spend time out there. It was never, never was a burden. And today, today I'm "retired" for a while and I - my husband was kind of getting upset at me because my 50th wedding anniversary is right around the corner and I was running around doing Tuna Canyon. And, you know, I hadn't finished all the invitations and he says people are going to think their after thoughts and he was getting mad at me. Anyway, everything's under control. We're going to make it to 50.
