Ah, my FJ friends. I thank you for taking time to drop me a note and send your wishes.
This was a mixed birthday. Since I was traveling this week I got an unplanned bonus of being home in Michigan for my birthday. But having watched the horrific events yesterday in Connecticut it put some things much more important into focus. Really made the day sad and tore a huge hole in my heart.
Thank you all, each and every one of you for the thoughts. It means a great deal to me.
