....always going forward (cause we can't find reverse!)

The following events happened in this order: Sold the house. Relocated the wife and kids to her folks in Wichita for a little while. Found a house in Burleson close to work. Got a job opportunity in St. Louis. Played Texas Hold'em. Flew to St. Louis for the job interview. Accepted the posisiton. Had my second imagined heart-attack in 18 months. Got a call from my lawyer. He's dissolving Wild Damn Texan.

I have three cats spread across the metroplex, three racks and a dozen unix boxes now without a home, and shortly, no remote access to any of my servers. I got a 3.6755% raise in my current position, and I've decided to rebuild the wee-mac now that I know better how to do things the 'mac way' and not try to force it to be Windows. The ER doctor wrote me a prescription for sleeping pills after my EKG came back normal, and I thank God for the blessings he has bestowed upon me every single day.

Tony and David have been a big help, and despite all my expostulations, I am thankful for them both. They alone help to alleviate this stressful time.

I'm driving to Wichita tomorrow evening and staying for the weekend. It will be great to see my wife and kids, and to spend some quality evening time with the wife. I'm sure I'll be the calmest creature on earth after that.

There are girls just ripe for some kissin'
and I mean to kiss me a few!
Oh, those girls, don't know what they're missin'
I've got a lot of living' to do!

And there's wine, all ready for tast-in'
And there's cadillacs - all shin-y and new!
Got to move, 'cause time is a wastin'
There's such a lot of livin' to do!

There's music to play, places to go!
People to see - everything for you and me!
Life's a ball, if only you know it!
And it's all just waiting for you!

You're alive, so go on and show it!
There's such a lot of livin' to do!

There sure the hell is a lot going on!
