So I thought I'd create an entire thread dedicated to how much I've missed you all. I never was much of a poster before. More of a sit back and listen to those wiser than I type. Mostly I'd save most posts for sharking. Still, being able to get back here and having the chance to read up on what's been happening (which I haven't quite done yet) feels a lot like dropping back in to my favorite watering hole. As for my absence, I've been spending a lot of time getting everything in order since I left the Army and am getting ready to welcome my first son into the world (a little smoke for a safe and easy birth would be much appreciated there, if the mood strikes you), but now I get to buy a new khuk to cut the cord with. The plan is to get a small one that, when he's old enough, can be his first khuk as well. All that and trying to start a new job while getting a business started (if anyone wants to help quality control...it's a microbrewery) has kept me pretty beat when I have down time. On a note that gives everyone something to talk about, what are your suggestions for that first khuk that will one day be little Wyatt's?
