I just wanted to swing by the I’m just sayin… offices to wish Mom and Dad a VERY HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m not 100% sure what one this is… I’m guessing either 46, 47 or 48. I know it was long enough ago that Dad had dark hair and a waist that was smaller than mustache I was telling you about the other day that Uncle George had. Over the years they have raised a functional mute, a trusting daughter (bless her heart) and a son they can be proud of (I’m not saying I’m that son… but I’m sure as hell not the functional mute!). Anyway, I hope they have a GREAT day!
The latest news on my buddy from work is that they took him off the machines and he was responsive. Keep praying for him!
