thanks you guys. oh and micheal, I was talking to nan about having the poet thing in korea next year... would be nice to get away from america and get a stamp on the good ole passport, would it not? *grin* ahh that would certainly be a unique experience. but I don't think it'll happen. but I will keep in touch, that much I can promise. I'm planning on visiting my friends in colorado after I get done with korea and hanging out with them for a few weeks, perhaps when I know when and where I'll be, I can give you a line and you can come on up and hang out with me and a few younguns (we won't be that young at that time though *grin*). if not, I'll see about comming in for the next get together that I can make.
