This page was pretty hard to write. I have to admit that it choked me up a bit. My dad has had some health problems lately and my daughter has moved out of state, so the idea of parent/child separation hits close to home.

In other (happier) news, Al and I are both on Google+, and you should be too. I like it a lot better than Facebook and I actually use it regularly, unlike my Twitter feed. They haven’t implemented entity pages yet, so we don’t have one for The Specialists, but you can find Al and I at the links below. “Circle” us and we’ll endeavor to entertain you.
