    Well, with respect to you and yours, I will say lots of positive thoughts for you and the man.

    I can empathize wholeheartedly. I wish for a good out come and safe travels. We'll miss you sorely as I was so looking forward to finally meeting you. First things first though.

    Be well!

    Cece and I send our good vibes in you and your Pop's direction. From this moment on (until I hear differently) when I am tipping back a few, one will be for you and yours.

    They didn't have a smiley doing a shot... that'll have to do. Gonna miss the photoshoot, but that just means we gotta come out to Cali!

    We'll see you soon... one way or another.

    That really sucks Jo! The family comes first though. Hope all goes well and have a safe trip. Moab will always be there next year!

    WHAT THEY SAID...

    You're gonna be 3-M (Missed Most Mightily) on the trails & on the stoop my friend...this is bummin' me out.
    I think the "catch phrase" on the stoop this year is gonna have to be:

    "Doesn't it feel like someone's missing?" Followed by a round of libations hoisted to You & Tone...

    But I know family trumps fun.
    Hope your father has a swift recovery, & you have a safe trip.

    Best, dub

    Jo, sorry to hear the sad news right on the heels of Anita's Dad. I wish your Dad a speedy recovery. I hope I make it to be 85 someday. Be careful of the deep cavity searches at the airport security checkpoints; they hurt. I've got plenty of inventory to raise many glasses of cheer. All my best to you and your Dad.

    Jo, so sorry to hear about your dad, but he sounds like a tough son-of-a-gun so I'm sure that he'll be recovering quickly.

    Moab and The Stoop won't be quite the same without you, but you'll be there in our hearts and minds.

    Safe travels and positive vibes to you and your dad.
