Missed. Absolutely. And you hit it right there. You know with the abundance of partnerships. I mean, look at look at the top look at you know, who own justify it was a partnership even with gun. It was a partnership there. And it's really become, you know, the the partnerships have really become a thing that I think have become the norm in are becoming kind of the the dominant player, even it's not even you know, you're. Seeing obviously among even the top end operations like a Windstar like China who you would think financial you're like, well, they don't need to partner with anybody. But they're, but it makes much financial sense for everybody involved. And and I remember talking with Mike Mike reportedly about this this year 'cause he he had kind of been resistant to kind of going down the avenue of of partnership, he, but he's the more he explored it, and the more that I could do it with people who I trust like it just made better sense, especially he's like at the sales like is it of you know, if we're all on the same force instead of three and fight in one of having to pay one million. We could combine forces and get the worse for five hundred thousand you know, how much better does that make for everybody else in the long run as far as verse reward factor? But you're definitely seeing the partnerships of the top four shit are becoming more and more of a dominant. If God bless him. He's the godfather of. This and his, you know, he's ten such tremendous influence, you know, you look at a clip store, or as you said, you know, or woman in the work that they've done with him. He's like, you know, it should it kinda cuts impact is is beyond any words that we could probably come up to pay come up with the paid tribute to him visiting with the leisure wins Hughes who is the new director communications with the NTR.
