You're gonna have to humor me here just a bit. You see, my friend is moving away. And just so you know, I'm not doin' much of a happy dance about this.

We've been friends for a while now, thanks to those Bad Example comment parties and the good ole telephone. When life brought me north, and I discovered THE Valley we had the opportunity to hang out a bit. Hell, the poor guy's even been on a couple of road trips with me. Yeah, that Marine Mentality has really saved his sanity, I'm sure.

Damn. I got kinda used to havin' the big galoot around.

So now he's movin' west. And it's a good thing for him, I know. He's lookin' at a great opportunity and one hell of an adventure, I've no doubt. BUT....I will miss him.

And I needed to say that. Out loud. I needed to wish him all the luck in this world. And I needed to say that out loud too.

Goodbye My Friend. THE Valley will not be the same without you.

And just so you know, we'll leave the light on............

Did not have that long to get to know him but will keep the seat next to Contagion's vacant until his next return. Safe trip and see you back soon. Maybe Vegas in December?.....

I promise I'll take care of him as much as he'll let me. Or I'll sick my mom on him, she'll be right across town!

would it help if I hopped up there wearing a pink bunny suit?

If you think about it, over the last couple of years, even when he was here, he wasn't. Always off on some whirlwind adventure and road trip.

Personally I blame his leaving for me having to give up beer. Since I was preparing to increase my intake to make up for his absence in Northern Illinois again, I figure this is the angry beer gods way of showing displeasure at the fact that I was going to damage my health even more to cover for his slacker arse. :)

Hell, he ain't goin' nowhere. Have you been over there and seen all the stuff he's gotta pack yet? He ain't leaving for another month...easy.

Hee hee. Sorry, Joe.

I'm sorry you're sad...he's a great guy. Saying goodbye sucks.
