Gathering of the Tribes

G of the T: Too many people to list... I'm in there somewhere (kinda like where's Waldo!) Ok, before I get going with this blog let me briefly revisit my last. After receiving numerous comments on my last blog (thanks folks!) I thought I might clarify a couple things: ~ First I wanted to thank Andy Veen for covering some of the Wed. evening classes for me while I was/am gone. I do appreciate it and I hope the experience helps you on your journey as well. You always do a good job.

Oops, forgot... ...I'm broke (yet spent $50 on my bar tab last night), yadda, yadda, yadda..." Needless to say I am a bit peeved by this time for blowing my entire morning and some of the afternoon on what feels like absolutely nothing! S
