Welcome Home My Friend!
I need to go to bed. It will be up early for the long drive to get you. (Not TOO long really...) Good neighbor leftist and I will be arguing politics the whole trip up. Grizzly Papa has charge of the girlies for the day at home. They are a little under the weather, but I'm sure will garner the strength to get some balloons tied to the lamppost and get the cake we baked today slathered with some sort of decoration. We are so happy that you are home with us again.
Update - He is home safe! Thanks for the good wishes. I will forward them to him.
