Ok, boys. Mr. Madsen will now tell you how to order and when his cutoff date is. Be generous. Support our own. Make us proud.
And the craftsman assures us that he can get more blocks. So place your orders!
Right arm, brother. Don't forget your less fortunate: those who can't afford it due to missionary work or straightened circumstances. Order early and order often!

I will have to sit this one out. But you did a stellar job on the prototype, Brian. You've got some serious moxie to take this on. I'm very impressed.
