There's never going to be a good time to tell you

That beest has advanced cancer It's a horrible shock, we don't really want to talk about it (please respect that), but we at least owe you guys the knowledge of what is happening to us. Chemo starts Thursday. And don't offer to cook meals or clean the house. We know you mean well, but we just need rides for the boys to keep them on our usual completely crazy unmanageable schedule. We understand if you're too far away

And yes, still atheist.

Fill some paintballs with a cocktail of wonder drugs, and hunt that sumbitch down.

sadly, the next big adventure was this weekend coming, so this is not a go, but he did get cleared to paintball with his port, so watch this space
