Man, I have not been keeping faithful enough records. Also, I have secretly been hoping parts of the west coast fall into the ocean so that New Mexico will be near enough to the Pacific for Kevin to get a job there. Not the part where you live.

Oh man, 8 enrichment meetings! That is dedicated friendship.
And I'm glad that you rediscovered AD since halloween.
And I'm glad that our friendship is written down and officially recorded. I'll always remember the day we met.

I thought I was the only one using the "pick me" strategy!
