    have been greatly exaggerated. :rolleyes:

    I have been sporadically trolling the forums but havn't had the time or ambition to be active in the threads. I also havn't had anything really constructive to contribute that hasn't been dealt with well by others.

    I was asked what's happened to me so here's the condensed version.

    It's been a rough month or so.
    I've been busy helping my parents because Mom had a severe stroke during a "routine" procedure. Her recovery so far is astounding everyone. I'll also be going to Canada in October to help winterize and close up their summer cottage.

    Work has been crazy because on top of switching our design software to Illustrator our office somehow ended up infected with one of the Zbot viruses (In no way related to the switch) and I'm as close to an IT department as we have. /sigh

    Nancy is retiring at the end of the month and I've been sneaking around trying to put together a party for her.

    Here's what I haven't bothered posting lately:

    Wow
    Ack
    Palin rocks
    He did WHAT??
    Thanks for sharing.
    Just do it, it'll be fine.
    nipples!!!
    Kwak beer
    Ice chest
    Sorry about that.
    Gratz!


    Slow Dance is still in the water and I'll be on her for a badly needed weekend away from everything tomorrow and Sunday. I'm leaving her in until I return from Vegas (Oh yeah. Vegas from 10/24 to 10/31.) so it'll be early November before she gets hauled for the winter.

    Things are settling down somewhat and I'll start participating more soon.
