I've been commuting between Tallahassee and Tampa for work since September. It's been a long time away from the wife and kids. In that time we've basically missed our anniversary, my birthday, my wife's birthday, all three kids birthdays, mother's day, valentines, and a few other big ddays for our family. In addition, my mother died. All in all, it's a great job, but it's been a tough nine months.
But now, the house is sold, and the family is moved into a beach condo for the next two months and then we are buying something here. so now we are all together!
I just wanted to throw a big thanks to everyone out their for really helping me through it all. anytime I could log in you guys were their. It really made it a lot easier, especially when it was getting kind of tough. And that goes for everyone from Mattt (yes Mattt) to Odie (by the way - you can change the sig now...). And a very special thanks to, of all people Jolly, who gave me a call at the perfect time - so perfect he will never know. also - to JeffH, who caused me to buy the second greatest guitar I'll ever own. I can go on, but just give all of y'all selves a big pat on the back - and if you are ever in Tampa - PM me, I at least owe you a beer.
And thanks to Seymour for the Soundoff (even when we get a little surly). It's the place that makes this more than a geek forum. It makes it a home away from from home.
PS - Now the missus is back I may have a little less time here!
