rdfrantz Posted May 21, 2006 Share Posted May 21, 2006 I'd like to open up our traditional Check-In thread with some special wishes. I wish many thanks Greg from San Diego (Gregori) for the T-shirts and the Stickers. They were just great! It took a tremendous amount of work to create the design, get the printing done, make the arrangements with you, and to get them in our hands. I'm so grateful that he willingly undertook all that to bring us some special joy and remembrance. I want to thank Laney for tackling the arduous process of producing Name Tags. I'm blown away at how she prepared some incredibly special imagery for us, topping herself once again. I wish she'd know how much she and that work and care is appreciated by us all. Because these folks are not always plugged into our board, I do pass these wishes on personally, but I'd like to include them here. To Randy Austin, owner of The Chuckwagon Lodge, it is with mixed feelings that I wish he'd retire and reap some rewards for his great love and service to us. He's adopted our group and does goes so far out of his way to make us comfortable, and to feel welcomed. I'd hate to miss his presence and and constant care for us, but if there was every anyone deserving of a rest it's our brother Randy. To Jamie, Randy's son, I wish at least as full a life as his dad, and as much appreciation from us. I feel so much gratitude for opening his home and heart to us, and including us in his housewarming celebration. His many hours of hard work are indeed deserving of our thanks. The lovely Christine once again prepared an awesome buffet for us. She's truly "up all night" giving her special care to us. I wish her rest, and to know that it's far from a surface "Thank you" that we want her to feel. And to you Torrey Attendees, I want you to know how grateful I feel, how fulfilled you make me with your sharing among one another of your enthusiasm, honesty, loyalty, compassion, and care for one another, and the so valued decency of of your Friendship. I wish you time upon time the many returns like those of visiting, and truly participating in Torrey and making it the astounding event it is. Best wishes to you all. Link to comment
