Laurie, Brucemems,

I love the 'Closed' idea. He would too.

I think arty, fun, and funky are all very appropriate directions. I
haven't seen the Closed collection recently so I can't think of a
particular one.

Bruce got to a lot of places after they were closed. Didn't matter. Their loss.

Anything important to you here Jenny?
