Same here Barry and to my other friends on the board.
I've also been buried in business and a few personal issues lately -- and remiss in posting here.
As the holidays approach, I have a bit to stress about, such as 22 relatives coming for Thanksgiving, including seven staying with us during the week prior and after. ALL MY WIFE'S FAMILY!! They eat me out of house and home!
(I'm gonna put on my Brooklyn hat and steal some dough from their wallets and pocketbooks.) LOL.
But as far as stress goes, at least I'm not stressing about PCa at the moment -- my next PSA test is in February, so that's a good thing.
Enjoy the holiday.
You've earned it.
And, as always, Thank God for Bluebird, who holds this place together for all of us!
