    Where be all the members?

    I don't come along very much these days as I am otherwise involved.
    Just wondering where are all the usual bods that used to inhabit the place?

    I guess the covid thing has people running around doing other stuff?

    I wish everyone well at this time and please stay safe.

    I got slammed with business doubling, society interactions halving, and losing great employees recently. Wish most of them the best of luck.

    Lost 5 in 2 weeks for various reasons, none covid, right as we see huge growth in sales, expansions, remodels.

    Lots of fun but glad to be working.

    Good to see you

    Stay safe.

    We're still here. The SG drop happened way before COVID. I blame cellphones.

    Got slammed with a lot of things. Marriage, Navy, divorce, university, work, and finally I've gotten hired in a career (I hope) working with the VA. 9-5 style job, so fingers crossed I can, you know, actually come back around and hang out with you all again.

    VA.. Sounds great, benefits and all. Divorce must've been a pain. Either that or I am too sentimental.

    Looking forward to the VA job very much. Going through the background stuff now before the first duty day. Going to be handling the pay issues for the docs, nurses, and admin staff in VA hospitals - I rather like this as it lets them have more time to worry about other veterans and less time having to worry about their own bills and such.

    Divorce was what it was. We're both better off for it; can't ask for a better outcome from a crappy situation than that, right?
