I'm getting ready to send out an email telling people to come visit my first brave attempt at putting up a web site. I have a long way to go, but as far as I know, I don't really have a deadline. We'll be having some visitors here next week, and then we'll be preparing for a four week road trip back East.
John's venture as a DOD consultant won't begin until sometime after we return from our trip. I'm glad about that. I'll never forget when we were dating and he didn't return from one of his trips until two nights before we were to get married. I was a wreck. That was probably the first time I thought I might want to bash him over the head. It seems he didn't tell anyone he was getting married. As he said then, "It wasn't any of their business." OK.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Benjamin for all his help and advice in getting me to believe I could actually do the blog and web site. He also let me know which parts I could do free, and what I actually had no choice but to pay for. That's invaluable all by itself. Thanks, Kid. It's also important to send thanks to Sherrie and John - Sherrie for answering a multitude of questions about her own site, and being available into the wee hours of the morning; and her husband John for never saying (at least loud enough for me to hear) "Is it her again?"
