You da man, Wedge. Others have said it, and I echo it; thanks.
Talamania was a blast, and we, all, missed you. You were talked about (all good, bro, I promise
). I know others will feel the same when I say that we cannot wait to have you back with us.
Life here is pretty good. I've been unemployed going on ten months, now, but I have a few irons in the fire. My wife has picked up the slack, for now, and is working two jobs. The kids have gotten older, with my daughter turning 13, and seemingly hitting all the angst and tribulations that come along with that milestone.
Summer is just starting to kick in and the kids will, soon, be home for the summer. The not-really-bred-for-caregiver-role part of me shudders at that thought.
May 21st came and went, thus putting another doomsday proclaimer's proclamations into the GPS vocabulary - "Recalculating."
Stay safe, keep in touch and know that we all miss you and truly appreciate you doing that which others will not.
