Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Nice Job and so fast. It took us 3 years to get ours going and we still have things that need to be changed and reworked.
Judging by the reactions of your singing group I assume you didnt consult them before painting.

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

Haha! When questioned, I asked them "who's $$$ was spent on the bus?" No more comments have come. It is fun at concerts though, there is always stage banter going on about it...lol.

Re: I drank the Kool-Aid

I guess for all intents and purposes, this is how it will stay. Still doing a few very minor things to it, but nothing worth mentioning.
