Welcome Back: Hope your vacation was nice, Razor. As I recall, you are versed in a number of what I might consider "extreme" sports. (Hell, I consider setting down my whiskey glass to toss the frisbee an extreme sport.) Anyhoo, you on vaction always leaves me with images of scuba diving, para-sailing, and other defiances of gravity and nature's order typically performed in tropical climes.
As you can see, my performance in your absence was spotty, to say the least. I've been negotiating something . . . er, large. Bids are in now, and it's out of my hands, but it was distracting for a little while.
