      Thanks Gary. Oh oh, that is dangerous telling me that my drunk writing was your favorite! 🙂
      Thanks for reading and following along. It is a crazy adventure out here. Nothing every runs in a straight line, but it always works out somehow. It drives you crazy sometimes, but then it turns out when you reflect on it that night or the next day, it was probably a better time not working out quite right…
      Thanks so much for the compliments Gary!
