I've been a "regular" here since 2000 (wow...over 4 years??? ), and it is truly amazing to me how much of a family this is. As most of the other long-timers here know, I've been through a lot over the past 2 years of my life, and it all came to a complete ending today. I won't rehash the entire situation, but in short here 'tis: Wife left, I fought to save marriage for 18 months, failed (not due to a lack of effort or intent on my part, but to a lack of desire on her's - I know, let it go), divorce final in Feburary, she got house (my idea) As of today at noon, I left my former home, and will never again park in that green driveway. I have a wonderful, beautiful new place (I bought a townhouse, very happy with it), and should be joyously settling into my new life. I'm not. But, I will be. The reason I'm posting this is that I got on here tonight, depressed, terminally lonely, literally crying. Within 5 minutes, I was laughing out loud (Benjamin Strange, thanks, I ever make it out there, you do not buy beer). I know it seems silly to some, but this place has been such a sanctuary for me at times, and I just want to thank each of you. Thanks.
