A few thoughts: I made it to Florida. Went through California and said my hellos and goodbyes to mom and siblings -- it left me an emotional wreck. Have myself a 2 bedroom apartment, 2 blocks from the beach, so I'm healing. Work begins on Monday and I can't wait to get started. The divorce was final on flag day (am I missing some irony here?). Boys come to visit in August.

ZG, time to finalize the Florida Alefest!!

I missed my contact to Cyburbia -- best wishes to all.

It's good to have you back. Heal, heal and heal. Where are the boys staying? Are they with their mother? If you guys get an Laefest together, let me know. I'm itching to get out of this one horse (Seg) town.

Great to have you back RJ!
We'll be sure to pop open a good bottle of Pinot Gregio tonight to celebrate your return to the fold.

Good luck and I hope you enjoyed the trip. Two blocks from the beach - that's got to beat Idaho. :)

RJ - Glad you've resurfaced. Cyburbia is glad to know they've got a couch to crash on by the beach. :D

Seriously - we're glad you're ok, and getting settled.

Glad your back.
Two blocks from the beach - sweetness :-} :-D

BTW - boy do I know how that is, growing up almost the same distance from the beach.

I have a feeling that every time you walk down to the beach, you will get a smile on your face, and remeber that when the time is right, the fish your looking for have beached them selves!

Welcome back, now lets get this party started.

RJ, glad to hear you've arrived and are settling in. Boy, am I jealous, I've lived here my whole life and never lived that close to the beach!

Would you be ready for a lae-fest sometime next month? Tallahassee? or further east/south?

Man....spitting distance to the beach has got to be nice!!! :-D


Go for a swim, and also go buy a kayak or some kind of boat for playing on the water.

Good Luck with the new job start

Welcome to Hurricane Land. ZG and I are off to see Trail Nazi in Jax today for baby's first birthday party while TN is visiting. Looking forward to seeing you hopefully this summer.

Good to see that one of life's long road trips is over. Now it is time to nest, and by nest yes, I mean party. Rent the DVD Old School and see if it gives you any ideas. Party on Jake(AKA Blue)...:)

Glad your trip was good. Families always cause emotional train wrecks but it is good to have those conections in our lives.

I just pray the hurricanes don't get you but being that close to the beach I bet friends come to visit.

Enjoy your new start, know that we are here for you in a cyber way!

Well I've probably missed some stuff now that I've been quite busy with my studies, but still... Welcome back RJ, and I hope you have a good new start. :)

I apologise for not being very timely but welcome back RJ. I guess you'll be reading this in the office during your first day in the new job ;-) - slack early and slack often - wouldn't want a pattern of diligence to become established.

Welcome to Florida. Hope you like the job. Wish I could see everyone at Laefest but I have to go back to Yankee land soon.

Hope you're back soon. We need someone to lead the eastern front of the Southern invasion of Pennsylvania.:-D [/ot]

Welcome to Florida! Just remember there are 3 essentials you must have:
1. an umbrella
2. sunscreen
3. a beach radio

Otherwise, relax and fuhgeddaboudit!
