Thank you, Bud, and thank both of you for the reports. As you can see we had really solid financial performance in the quarter and also very strong performance from a credit quality standpoint where there were a lot of questions early on in the pandemic about loan deferrals. And this will put that question to bed for us. We won't have to talk about loan deferrals again.
So, we'll be happy to answer any questions you might have starting right now. Thank you.
