Hello all and sundry,
It has been a long, long time. Longer than I like to think about. The last time I spoke to most of you (well, those who were around back then anyhow) was in 2002...nine years ago, at age 38. Now, at a much mellowed age 47, I've somehow managed to pull myself back into competition shape, and am making one more run at the NPC Regionals next year, and if I qualify, the Nationals (both in the Master's class, of course) at the end of the year.
In any case, it's good to be part of the community again -- I'm looking forward to learning a few tricks from you young whippersnappers : - )
