Posting a few things because it's been a while.

I'm sorry that I missed TripJax's trip to the Queen City of the South. This was the second recent trip and the first that I've also been in town for. Next time he'll remember to bring his laptop.

My wife, Mrs K., will be finishing up her Doctorate degree in Audiology (AUD for those who know what that is) in about 2 weeks. I am so proud of her. It's looking like she will finish with straight A's. She has worked super hard on this for well over a year,even doubling up in the last month, just to make sure that her dad would live to see it. She is my hero and inspiration.

Speaking of Mr. C. He is hanging in there pretty well. He is stronger and more alert since getting off his chemo. He will start another course of a different drug in a couple of weeks, so we are hoping it won't sap him like the last round.

Mr. and Mrs. C and their children are headed to the beach later this week. That should be a special time.

Poker sucks.

Last week was hell week at work. We rolled out a new workshop on database performance tuning. I got to write and edit large parts of the manual and labs. I also got to be the first to present it to a paying customer in the whole world. It didn't help that the course was not ready and had to be fixed as I was going into day 1. It went off pretty well. I now have 4 or 5 more scheduled in the next 2 months. I should know the stuff pretty well by then. It's good to be on the back side of all that work.

Our dog Wrigley has a hurt leg and needs to stay calm for the next 10 days. I'm glad it is not more serious. She is the kind of dog that will not be much of a problem keeping down. She's pretty lazy. Cute as hell, but lazy.

I'm going for a sleep study tomorrow night. I think it is time to go practice now. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
