Hello Again

Looks like I'm moderating again for a bit.  Any issues, shoot me a message.

As long as you don't shoot the messenger.

I'd probably accidently ban myself again trying.  happy Pi day BTW.

You can't call me dirty words anymore (Liberal supporter), I support Jagmeet Singh now. :)

Hello all.  I am checking in even though I may seem invisible.  (always wanted that super power)  Any way, last Tuesday the 18th I became a grandfather.  (that's second one in 14 months)   A  happy event indeed.   Less so was the apartment fire they had  about 1 AM Xmas eve.  My wife was there at the time.  Ended up camping out in a Ramada Inn at 3AM.  I had to make the 3 hour drive to get them up and they're staying here for a few weeks.  So, stressed and distracted as I am, I will uphold my highest standard of moderating.  That pretty much means trying not to accidently ban myself again.

The grandchild is perfect, and I'm making sure I take the time to enjoy him.

Hope everyone is in good health oldgoat! Enjoy your family and the holidays!

Funny little thing.  As a fireman was giving oxygen to my then 6 day old grandson in the apartment lobby, he asked my daughter about her high school. Turns out they were in drama class together for 4 years.  She remembers him as always wanting to be a fireman.  The whole thing was actually pretty bad.  Two fire crews and paramedics.  They were in London I was in Oshawa.  Rough few days.

May have made a bit light of it in my first post, but I'm still pretty shaken.

Hi Oldgoat,

Congratulations on the new grandson. Sounds like a rough situation your daughter ended up in. I hope that one of the firemen being a former classmate of hers was of some comfort during what was no doubt a very stressful time.
