    The opening clip for the Surry video

    Right now I have a jigsaw puzzle of clips that are in the video. I can't release most of them until after the 4th (and it will take a little time then). I still have many more to make since we haven't even gotten to the 4 yet.

    I did finish the opening scene though and am putting it up now. Curtis noticed something that needs to be changed and I have in the master project. Hopefully if you see it, you'll overlook it for now.

    The asterisk next to the volume bar opens full screen. On many computers it looks better that way.

    I can hardly wait to see "The rest of the story..."

    Thank you, Peter.

    Prime time teaser Peter - can't wait to see some of the reserved footage.

    January 4th is coming up on us fast now - less than a week away.

    Pretty bold statement already, there, Peter.

    Best wishes to you and Skidmark, Grapeshot, Curtis, and all the other Richmond area regulars.

    Happy New Year!

    I saw them USN, but thanks!
    There are a couple more too.

    One of these days they'll come up with spell and grammar check for titling programs. Actually thinking is such a chore

    Good job on the video.
    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    So who else is coming to Surry on Jan 4th? Show your support and enjoy a meal at the Surreyhouse Restaurant afterward - will be a lot to talk about.

    PM me (don't post here) of your intention.

    If I may, Peter, the last graphic goes by pretty quickly, IMO. Of course, it could just be me.

    I may lengthen it in the final cut M. The graphic before it is the critique on the music and has to be there to keep it in the fair use category. It doesn't have to be that long though.

    I tend to make the opening clips too long and on this one I deliberately kept it short.

    Putting these together is a constant change and see affair. Even when I finish I get a lot of "I wish I had", moments.

    I started to have a flashback to the 80s and 90s with their great theme songs for movies. That one fits it perfect. Now if I can just stop nodding my head jamming to it.

    Sequel!!!!! Jan 4th needs to get here.

    Just two more go-to-beds, today and tomorrow and then we are there - it seems like only yesterday that the leaves were changing all along the James.

    We'll be checking everything twice and trying to get some down time too.

    Yep, two more days and most of tomorrow prepping. Hopefully my fever broke for good this morning but I'll be there no matter what.

    Take care of yourself, Peter. It's dropped at least 10 degrees since the rain started again in earnest here about 10.

    I think I'm over the worst of it now. Fever seems to still be down. I still can't see well or walk but getting the damn fever out of the way is great.
    Didn't realize how handy a top notch immune system was until I lost it.

    I think I caught this at pay n pig in Williamsburg when we filmed at Surry last week.
