Time to study for my Extra Ticket

Hello everyone. I thought I would just write a few lines and let everyone know that I'm starting to study for my Extra. I've got a lot of work cut out for me but lucky for me my wife Robin (AJ4IJ) just upgraded to Extra and she is going to help me study.
Anyway, not much has been going on, we've been enjoying our new station setup. Robin has been actively participating in the lady's round table on 145.470MHz. We've been consistently checking in on the Rat Pack net on the same frequency, the Rocky Top Swap Shop on the 145.230 repeater, and conversing with several HAMs: KU4ME, KF4SSI, N4JTQ, KI4YPO, KJ4CRU. KG4LGL, N4CQW, N4PXL, and many more than I can think of at the moment.
I would like to take a moment to thank KJ4CRU again for the QSL cards we received from him yesterday. We were all as excited as a bunch of kids on Christmas morning. I would also like to thank N4JTQ and KI4YPO for the QSL card they sent to Ashby (KJ4EGJ). She really enjoyed that too. She's got one more QSL card than me and 2 more than her momma.
Well, it's getting late and I'm listening to a very funny QSO at the moment. So, I'll wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day and tell everyone 73.

just ran across this and thank you. Great site and it was a pleasure sending the cards. I appreciate your return QSL cards as well. They were a delight, and most unique, homemade in fact. Thanks for the little touch of East Tennessee in there.
