That's right, and and the cool thing is we talk about. Bobby? Reid. Who has been with this twenty five years probably like that they have came up and embrace. The carrying that torch and become become leaders and role models really is. What it, is lead by example so so you. Got to keep, passing the torch down when guys like that it's always interesting to watch how the younger folks how they how they react with those people like. With the, LeRoy around you, can really learn a lot about somebody's, character and about their work ethic with how they treat, someone like that and the guys are Trump respect and dignity seem to always go a lot further, than, the, ones, that sorta just just look at them as an afterthought I mean, there's a lot to be learned from that generation.
