Huckleberries Online

TGIF Wild Card 7.29.11

Wow! It's been like, a few weeks, since DFO took some time off! He must be exhausted :-)

I'll try to fly this thing solo, but you might want to take note of the emergency exits and barf bags. Due to budget cuts I am no longer able to offer you a snack, pillow, or blanket, but I do hope you enjoyed your complimentary patdown when you signed on.

On a more serious note, my family is trying to adjust to a world without my beloved father-in-law in it and it is proving to be a very bumpy ride. Thanks for your many kind words and condolences.

And just this thought, never miss the chance to say the words "I love you" to those you care about. It doesn't matter how many times you've said them, or that you're sure your loved ones know you care. Just say it, if you mean it, and say it often. You never know when it will be the last time.
