The Thang:

You will have to forgive me, I have a lot to get out in this. So, fare warning.

Well………the anticipation had been looming for a few weeks. I keep getting the same question. How are you feeling?
My answer for the last week has been some where between, What the hell am I getting my self Into- let’s do this.
This week leaving my job at Spectrum/Time warner 9 years. Was easy. Tooooo easy. In fact not a tear was dropped, not a stray emotion. Got a free steak lunch form my sup, and that was that. I will miss the team I worked with. The group of guys I poured Into. The folks I’ve worked with for the last good bit…over all and all, to easy..

Last night into this morning. My emotions ran into sadness and joy all mixed into one. Leaving this AO and the HIM that I have grown to love, respect, follow, lead, laugh and cry with.  Watch men go form their first workout to leading there First Q, to the mumble chatter all along the way. Respect!

What does F3 mean to me?
If it wasn’t for this group of HIM around here… not just Warthog but Bombsquad, The Village, Blackbeard. I would not be where I am today, you all gave my Y purpose, you all showed me where I could go. How hard I could push myself, to take criticism, and become a better leader, follower and man. I could not get this all out after the name o Roma, due to all the emotion, of maybe never seeing you all again. Or at least for a year. Form the bottoms of my heart, to the deepest part of my soul, All of you have made an impact on me. AYE!

I didn’t get really any sleep last night and the Anxiousness has  really set in. So, not really falling asleep till 1am, 3 am? Not sure….. but I woke up at 0600 or so…. got dressed and made my way to the AO.
needed to warm up, caught backdraft and had a chance to say goodbye to him, as most of you know that bromance will live on forever. YOUR MY BOY BLUE!
noticed that my new “ basic” watch was off by 4 mins. Just one more thing I have to fix,
