My brother, Red Baron, was in town yesterday for his annual check flight. So when he called me up offering dinner, who was I to say no? Given the mood I’ve been in, had anyone else asked, I would’ve politely declined. But I don’t get to see the Baron very often…except on trips to Beaumont. And those are always spent trying to play catchup with everyone so it leaves little time for more lengthy, individual conversations.
I went and picked the Baron up from his hotel and then we met my other brother, Duckie, at a nearby restaurant. Red Baron was joking that he should come up more often because it was pretty obvious that Duckie and I had catching up to do as well. It’s funny, but really kind of sad. I mean, Duckie does live within 30 minutes of me (if the flow of traffic cooperates), but we don’t see a lot of each other. We have good intentions at times, but life gets in the way I guess.
Anyway, it was great to spend a few hours with the both of them. I love my family! Even though we aren’t always the best at staying in touch, I feel really fortunate to have the family that I do.
I see that the testing app server bounce is complete, so back to work I go…
