... to all my friends who offered words of encouragement, positive thoughts, and even fundraising offers. I thank you all from the bottom of my wrinkly old heart, and I'm soooo touched by your kindness and heartfelt wishes. Okay, enough of that mushy shit for now. I'll be back in the morning to entertain you with my quirky prose and slick wit. Goodnight all, and it's good to be back.
Dad here- he thought he clicked "Publish", but didn't. Must be out of practice. Anyway, despite the "mushy shit" part, he does appreciate all your comments, and he looks forward to getting back into his groove. I'll make sure he's up early enough to come up with something new.
