To lighten the mood somewhat:

I am NOT being extended...and I am NOT being replaced...

I continue my streak of deployments and NO replacement..

My boss in the states sent me a picture of my going away plaque...it has the grim reaper on it.

Secondly, my best friend had his 5 year old son get sick. Didn't know what was wrong. He finally got real dizzy and said his "heart hurt". Took to Emergency room in Longview Texas. Ran some tests, and the next thing he knows, they're on a G5 flight to Dallas. Leukemia. Early, and treatable, but still---can you ever be sure?

I tell you...it's hard to be away from my family now, I just want to grab them and hold them close...

Think of them, if you can...and thanks, sorry I know I rarely "go there"...

I will resume normal programming shortly...

(My main defense mechanism for my line of work is "smiling"....just the way I'm wired I guess)
Wow Fed. Definitely praying for those families. Hang in there buddy.

In most cases all you need is to wait until you find one you like, and click on it, and follow the directions.

Thanks
Sorry... don't have any advice for you. Haven't had to pay for a babysitter... YET! Welcome to the club! You are member # 512!

Should be a non-issue. Disney had already offered other positions in the company that would not be public facing and she refused. Her loss. Anyway... welcome to the club! You are member # 513!
