Thanks once again to all my good friends out there. Bansai, that is some memory you have there. I am glad I could bring some jocularity into your lives, although I've been known to give a rant or two in the past.
One addition to the festivities; my wife gave me her present later that day. It was the 2013 Hallmark Star Trek Christmas ornament, the USS Kelvin. Life is good!
PS -- I believe opallady's birthday is coming up soon.
