Life is good. You help prove that point.

You're a hard man to live without, Gerard. I can't wait until you're back.

Posted by Harvey at August 1, 2004 11:29 AM

You're a smart man, sir.

Go and soak it all in, brother. Refill your tank, recharge your battery and renew your spirit.

And don't worry about us; I think we'll all be right here, waiting, for when you return.

Thank you for what you do here, Gerard. And many thanks to your gracious family for sharing you with us.

Every word is appreciated, every thought conveyed, a treasure.

Yeah, we'll be here. Count on it.

I know what you mean. Because of my site, I'm WAY behind on my soaps.

Don't let us drive you crazy.

Hurry back. I need material.

Posted by Jeff G at August 3, 2004 1:38 PM

Have a great vacation, and you'd bloody well better restart this site when you're done!

Posted by Donald Sensing at August 4, 2004 1:35 PM

We miss your imaginative take on life. Don't stay away too long.

Posted by Tom at August 4, 2004 9:06 PM

Looking good. Nice airplane. Reminds me of Nam.

Posted by Aaron at August 5, 2004 10:04 AM

here's where you can get help, Bos...

Posted by tkozal at August 6, 2004 8:18 AM

But I just got here . . .

Dang. Miss you already.

Posted by Uncle Mikey at August 6, 2004 9:31 AM

You're one of the best, man. Let us know when you return!

(Yeah, checking in late.)

Good luck with your tourrettes. Your twitching and barking was driving us crazy anyway. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your toupee.
