I wanted since, um The turn of a C 19 1900. No, no, it would be 2000 year to turn of the other century, Okay? Um, well, but we're not the reason I'm getting at it. Hopefully it's halfway modern because you live in Wellington is that Larimer County up there? It's Lerma County. I live between Wellington and Fort Collins.
