Notes from the Chief

Crikey it’s been a while since I typed a column with a story.  I done got laid up with some sort of sickness that wiped me out.  I don’t get sick but once a year, but this took several years and piled them all into one.  

To explain how I felt … exhausted.  As I am typing this, I realize I found the perfect way to explain how I felt in my own words.  Imagine that you are watching your dog, and he starts hacking and you know he is going to throw up. Up comes the vomit, hopefully outside or on the vinyl flooring.  

Now that happens and it’s pretty gross, but to put into context how bad I felt, just imagine the dog licking the puke back up.  

Have a nice week!
