View Full Version : It's Been Awhile

08-22-2007, 03:36 PM
It's been almost a year since I've been on here, and there have been about 150,000 posts since then. Life has been very busy, and it just got to the point that I couldn't keep up with all the new posts, so I just quit checking in. I'm sure there has been a lot going on while I was gone, and I hope all of you are doing well.

While I was away, we found out that we were expecting our second child. He was born on July 17th, and weighed a very healthy 10 lbs., 3 oz. He's doing great, but my wife has had a few problems related to the unplanned C-section (due to the baby's size); hopefully those are getting better. Because my wife had a "high-risk" pregnancy, we haven't even had the boat out of the garage all summer. I've missed it, but we've been so busy getting ready for the baby's arrival, and now getting him settled in at home, that it hasn't been a priority for us.

I was thrilled to see the prayer request thread. What a tremendous blessing it is to have others praying for your needs and concerns.

I certainly won't be on here as much as I used to be, but I'll try to check in a bit more often than I have lately.

Daryl, you take care of the wife, your 1st child and new baby before worrying about being on here. We are praying for you and the family and there will be a time when being on here and using the boat according to required standards will come and the fun and memories will start to accumulate!

Capt. Kidd is back and he is procreating like the good pirate that he is!:D

Nice to hear from you. Update: I have quit drinking, smoking and have more time to ski than ever before. Actually I still drink, smoke and have really not been skiing much either.:o

Some things never change. Congrats!

Hey cap, Good to see you. Thanks for the update. I often think about the ones that we loose to the “real life”.. So keep the family squared away and don’t forget to introduce that new one to the world of skiing..
We would also be ok with pictures..

Congrats on your new addition and welcome back!

I haven't been able to play as much lately with all the TT members with my new job taking up a big piece of my day.... but I can honestly say I don't know a finer group of people that I don't know!

Hey There Capt! Way to go pal! :toast:

Congrats my friend!
things havent changed much around here. Ric still looks in people's garages, Staristar still drinks on friday and posts signs sometimes, Eastie still uses 303 like its going out of style, Rod still types like a drunken cub bear with boxing gloves on, and Hoosier Bob still thinks Fred Ward is the fastest thing on two wheels.

Good looking lil' guy there. I like the tag. Was that affixed when the stork dropped him off?
