Well, well, well

Imagine my surprise. I leave with Bou and Beloved Wife to finish the grocery shopping. You know, pushin' that heavy cart around the store, looking for some yummies to feed my family. Get back, slave over a hot stove creating a culinary delight. Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches, fries, salad, fresh strawberrys (it's season!) on a wonder sponge cake with - Reddi-Wip (of course). After we girls get everyone fed I sit down to see what's goin' on and what do I see? Yep - those rascals left me a little surprise on my blog. Thanks! That's one less post I have to do!!!

Anyway - as I'm sure you can tell, we are having a great time.

Eric called this evening. What a wonderful suprise. Actually I had planned on us calling him this afternoon so he just beat us to the punch. We miss him terribly - along with T1G, Ogre and the rest of the crew - but we will carry on!

Tomorrow is the Main Event. SarahK & Frank J will be here in the morning, LeeAnn and hubby will be here around noon. Yep - this is fantastic.

I wish you could see what I see as I'm sitting here on the couch writing this. Beloved wife and Johnny_Oh are sitting in the living room talking about music. Around the kitchen table sits, Bou, Teresa, Harvey and _Jon. Conversation, laughter......it's like we've all "KNOWN" each other for years. It's really, truly a family reunion. There hasn't been one moment of uncertainty. From the minute someone walks in the door it's like another piece falls into place.

Oh, and the house we've got down the street....it's just wonderful. The only problem is that it's got a lock on the thermostate, and it's set at 70 degrees. We can't turn the heat up - so it's gonna be a bit chilly down there. But that's really just for sleeping.

But meanwhile the house is full of laughter and conversation. It's wonderful. We wish you were here!

So, I'm getting the feeling that you guys are having a good time?!

Enjoy yourselves, and you may hear from me sometime Sunday. Maybe very early Sunday. Very, very, very early. *evil grin*

Please punch FrankJ in the face for me. Mheh.

Also, if you would be kind enough to tell Harvey that he named his muse all wrong. Bosco tasted nothing like chocolate. Chicken would be the closest thing. Indeed.

I... I... I... I HATE YOU ALL!!!! [bursting into tears]

Seriously - reading about what a great time y'all are having is really bittersweet. I love that the reunion is going so beautifully, and I hate that I couldn't make it. *I WILL MAKE THE NEXT ONE.* I don't care if I have to hire a chimpanzee to run my company in my absence! Some would say that would be an improvement in my company's operations, but what do my clients know?

Have a great time, folks... see ya next time around!

Jeff, I'm with you! [crying in my latte] Sigh!
How I wish I was there too meeting and being with all of you. But we are in the middle of schools open house season. Which means that I've been busy running around the city, scheduling and doing interviews and working on applications to various schools for my son.

I WOULD MUCH RATHER BE HANGING OUT BY THE POOL!!! Tammi, I would take a 61 degrees any day to what it is currently the tempeture in my bedroom. I'm sure everyone slept fine and they're having such a wonderful, as evidenced by their comments on your blog.

And I'm with Jeff... come hell or high water, I'll make a point of attending the next reunion even if I have to beem myself there via a holographic webcam. Till then I will be there in

May you all have a safe trip back to your respective homes.

About that thermostat...double baggie some ice and set it on the locked thermostat. Perhaps thumbtack it to the wall and fill in the hole with toothpaste before you leave.

Good to know college was good for somethings.

---BTW, you never heard this from me.

I'm only a few hundred miles north, and the sun is shining nicely here, so I'm sure you're having even better weather down there! Maybe I'll call my sister (she lives in Jax) and tell her to stop by in my place...
