Thanks Jim and Melanie

Two of the nicest people anywhere are leaving to move back to Florida. Jim and Melanie are packing things up and stashing them into the container (already on a trailer too) that's parked in their front yard.

The inside of their house is beginning to look like they don't live there any more. Even the hand-made bar is gone.

Yesterday, at the 'appointed time and place', we celebrated our last happy hour on the patio, pool-side at Jim and Melanie's.

If it's not the end of an era, it's certainly been a good run of several years. We're just thankful we were able to be part of it for three and a half of those.

Thanks, guys.

Cheers,

Thank you for the kind remarks. We have really enjoyed hosting the Friday Happy Hours. There will be a hole left in my heart not seeing you all at least every week. It has been a wonderful 7 years 3 months here. We will miss all of you a lot.

I know how you feel, I felt that way when D & D left.
