A short shout out to the folks at Johnston Meier Insurance Agencies Group who have been so supportive as Wendy struggles to balance her work with her dedicated care of me and my medical needs. The Christmas party last night was a noisy, delicious and incredibly friendly affair. A special thank you to all of Wendy’s colleagues who came by to say hi. Especially those who read and appreciate this blog. It is always a little surprising and a lot meaningful to hear that readers are getting something more than entertainment out of my writing. The encouragement is deeply appreciated.
