    Wow what you can miss in a year

    Hi all,

    I amazed what can occur in a year's time. I feel as though I missed the bourbon boat!!!

    I opened a restaurant, things are actually going well, (the economy is not helping).

    Just got the liquor license. Julian, Preston....need some help getting some good bourbon/rye in here!!!! 402-214-1956 call me!!!

    Bettye Jo, Chris and I really missed seeing you and everybody this year. Our love and best wishes to you and your family.

    P.S. I'm going to try to make time to be back, we have sorely missed all of you.

    Mark, welcome back!

    I can't say I missed you, but at least I remember you, which is better than I often do with my car keys.

    IIRC, you posted either a menu or a link to your restaurant's website when you took your leave. An eclectic menu, I seem to recall.

    I'm glad you're hanging tough. I know the restaurant biz is tough, even in the best of times.
