Scottie Update

Guess what Brave Sir Robin did today?

I had a phone conversation with my brother!!

It was slow and halting, and difficult to understand at times, but it was real, and I could tell it was him.

To be honest, there were many days that I thought he was gone. I had said my goodbyes, and I actually went shopping for a new suit for the funeral.

Then, after the hurricane, we had a glimmer of hope, only to be frustrated with the turtle's pace of his progress.

I doubted this day would ever come, but it did.



Welcome back Bro. I love you.

That's amazing, and just a hint of what's to come.

Don't believe for a moment that Love didn't play (and isn't playing) a big part in that.

We'll try to channel more of it your way, seeing as you have the distribution system working so well! ;)
