Oh wow!!! I just discovered this thread, and read the whole thing in one sitting!! The thread is very appropriately named, this journey was most certainly epic!

Can't wait to see how this all turns out!

WOW JD, you'll pulling people out of the woodwork waiting for the next installation.

I'm more than touched hearing the effect the name tag had for you. And all this time I thought they were just name tags. :shock:

Pre-printed name tags say "you belong", and that someone was expecting you. :) I think that's why so many of us really liked them.

(I have mine in an antique cranberry-&-clear glass dish next to my computer, holding court with my volunteer badges, 2 of my BRC ticket stubs, 2 EA wristbands, a treasured Work for the Man pin, some stickers, and a heart-shaped LED blinkie.)

I'm sorry to make you all wait longer but I am really not feeling well and have too many doctor appointments tomorrow. We find out what my new MRI says. It'll be a day or two until I'm back. I promise not to be gone too long. Part Eight is coming up.

Oh my goodness she is pretty as a sparkly pennie. Did you see her at the meet and greet? A particular ray of sunshine she was. I hope she's alright and that the MRI shows that it's all fixable.

Yummy! I'll do the honors of passing this around. I'll also add some wine, red now that chilly weather has set in, so we can toast our lovely and brave Jax and wish her well. However, someone is going to have to pry the bottle out of my hand after I've served everyone else. I might get a bit tipsy while I sip away waiting for our heroine's return.

I will help serve, too!!

Jax, I bow down to you and your saintly patience! You are way brave!! I would've had that sawed-off outta my back window
the first day, sayin "We're takin a walk son......"
And I deal with alot of yahoos on a daily basis, I'm the calm one on my team.
Kudos for Jax!! And next year, if you need a hand just holler, I would try everything I can to help out!!
