Today's the day. Nine long, painful months speckled with joy have lead up to tonight. In case you've been under a rock, The Phoenix is opening tonight at 4:00pm with Karl and I behind the bar. (Mostly Karl.)
I don't really know what to say now. I don't think I'm too often at a loss for words (some of my blog posts are a testament to that) but I'm not sure what to say at this point that hasn't been said before. So many people have to be thanked for making this possible for us: David, Red, Ray, Bradley, Vern, Paul, Lalo, Richie, Dwight, and George and probably more than a few others that I'm forgetting. Thank you all.
It's been an amazing ride. And one I'm not sure I'd want to get on again; but we'll see. Thank you for coming along with us; it has meant more to us than you might possibly know.
