    A fun mission today for the nine PGR who participated in wishing Mr. Bartolini a Happy Birthday. We didn’t have the expected LEO escort, but no matter, traffic was very light on the route. When we pulled up to his house he was seated at a table outside with balloons and other family and friends around. He told us some stories from his time in the service, which he said was “the best 20 years of my life”. He did top secret work on nuclear guided missile development.

    We sang happy birthday and did a final drive by on our way out. Great to meet you, Alfredo!
