My city asked that 600 cases not be counted... for reasons. The governor scoffed.

It was UCSD, buncha lousy freshmen think they're immortal.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Big day tomorrow with my first born being transplanted from London to Manchester. I'm driving him and staying there overnight so it should be a lot of fun.

Not really sad at all, more satified that the plan I had 19 years ago has finally checked out. It's been tweaked a little, but hardly noticeable overall.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

"Plan"? Likely story.

You, of all people, know that likely to be true.

All he has to do now is ace his degree (and subsequent learning), get an excellent job, secure his future and then buy his dad a Maserati. Then the plan will be complete.

Wish him well and good fortune from me! (but jazz it up with some hip phrases the kids use today)

Because there is a bunch of pelvic-related slang today!

I'm sure there's a ball-and-socket euphemism out there somewhere.

smokes, I hope he thrives there, and I fully expect that he will.  But won't you miss having him at home?

Yeah, long-distance tech support can suck.

He already has a reverance for you so your sentiment is all that's needed.

smokes, I hope he thrives there, and I fully expect that he will.  But won't you miss having him at home?

It's a mixed feeling really. I have a tight relationship and, in many ways, I depend on him so it is feels like a real loss. On the other hand, there is the realisation that he is now no longer a child and that our relationship is more akin to the type I have with my good friends. That feels like a gain so I guess it's okay on balance.

Yeah, long-distance tech support can suck.

Thankfully, he has to come home every 7 or 8 weeks for his orthodontist so I'll probably have a list ready every time he does.

;D ;D ;D ;D

Drove through Leicester yesterday and thought about you mate.

If I continue to miss the M6 I'm guessing it won't be my last passing through.
