“Oh Pooh, if ever there was a tomorrow when we are not together, remember you are braver than you believe and stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is even if we are apart I will always be with you. I will always be with you.”

I really can’t think of a more fitting analogy.

For years, Bob-net has succeeded at filling voids in my life — mainly the one created by a mindless job that involved countless hours in front of a computer with little to do. I simply don’t have that situation anymore, and while that sounds like a regret, I couldn’t be happier that my life is so full. I have a fulfilling and rewarding job, an entertaining and rapscallying child, a loving and life-affirming wife, and the best group of friends anyone could hope to have.

At this point, I can’t wedge Bob-net in without squeezing something out. And I don’t want to do that.

I’ll remember fondly the games we played and the adventures we had. Thank you, Bob-net. I can only hope my son gets to experience a silly bear like you someday.

Thanks for everything, gang.


I guess it’s Video Week.

We may have done something like this before. If so, I apologize.

If you could live inside of five movies, which would they be?

As Xuxa used to say, “Abdul, you are weiner. New game.” I came up with something much better.

What are five items that appear on your flag?
