Thank you very much. Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much, and thank you for inviting us here. And we have the most enjoyable evening and enjoyed being here. I realize that the original plan was that I would, in a sense, sing for my supper. And in fact, I was prepared not really to sing, but to do what you expected. And Nancy and I had another. Sad journey that we had to make before coming here tonight.

And as I say, we appreciate being here, but I hope you'll understand if I say that I just don't feel that coming as we did from Andrews Air Force Base and the ceremony there that I could then stand up here. And besides, I shouldn't try to match Mark anyway. And nor could I if I wanted to, but. If you'll forgive us, I'll keep my script and I hope you'll give us a rain check and it'll still be appropriate next year and invite us back. Thank you.
