It was a sprint to the finish at work today, but I finished all that I could and now I'm off for almost two weeks out west visiting Janice's family. I'll be sure to write every day, but may not be able to get to a computer to send the e-mail on the road, so my correspondence with you may come in fits and starts over the next two weeks. But don't worry--I'll be thinking about you, so don't forget about me!
Talk to you soon,
