Dear friends, I have been so busy at the office, near 24/7, that I was late finding time to get my 6 month PSA done, and if I'd not been reminded I'd have forgot to call for the results, which, as you can see below, continue at zero.
My frantic business life --- I even worked a number of hours on Christmas day ---- may keep me from posting, but most nights, last thing, I come here before turning out the light to catch-up and follow you all. And I rejoice with the good news and I keep David (who is off for surgery tomorrow) in my prayers, as I do all of you.
I look forward to the day when the recession has died down (or, would that be perked up?) and I have more time to spend here. Until then I apologize for not being a better contributor.
As Sonny, and many others, point out, we are brothers and I care about you all.
