Pardon the dust…It gets in your eyes

Once again I stand before this Honorable group a humbled, honored wretch and with once again having my spirits lifted.

As all of you know (with many thanks to Nicki :) ) I am moving both myself and my mother back to South Dakota.  The reasons are simple; a simple life, simply more opportunities and most important of all, I am getting out of this hellhole once and for all.   For all of you that helped and those that couldn’t (there are many times I wished I could have) a little Irish prayer goes a long way.  The great people that make up the ‘Rott all have special place in Heaven and I truly believe that.  Hopefully one day I’ll be able return the kindness shown me here threefold.

The catalyst for this is that my mother is getting harder and harder to take care of and her last wish is to die where she was born.  I think we all in the end that’s what we want for ourselves…unless you’re from Jersey.  Now if I just can get the trailer packed, get across country without having the Blazer go tits up and get the household set up without having a nervous fucking breakdown I should be fine.

Again, thank you all from the core of my heart and soul.

    I can’t thank people enough.

    Take care of your family. They are more important that you will ever know.

    I, for one, am going to miss your ass coming to my house at all hours of the morning and waking me up on the weekends. And parking on my lawn. ;)

    Seriously, these folks here have been amazing in their help, and I was so glad to help coordinate this little effort!

    Thanks to all who sent good thoughts, prayers, cards, money, etc.! You guys are the best.

    And Crunchie… about that nut shot!
