Merry Christmas Doug. May you achieve everything on both lists, and then start another list after that!

I came across your blog while clicking the "Next Blog" link starting from my own blog.

I was diagnosed with stage III rectal cancer in July, the week after my 43rd birthday. I'm scheduled for surgery on January 4.

I wonder if the FSU Circus means you're a Nole. If you are, then from a Gator to a Nole, hang in there Doug. Let's both win.

Let me know when and where you want to juggle and or talk...I'm up for both. Also, willing to go diving as well...scuba diving that is, not sure about the sky part.

Hope the numbers continue to go in the right direction. You're always in our thoughts.

Dear Cuz, you can add to both your lists to become reacquainted with your cousin again (ME!!!). Either way, it has made my day to find not only you but also Normie as well. Gosh, we all used to have such fun, 'specially climbing Mom's mimosa tree. Wishes for peace to you and yours from Sarah Jane

PS How was the Cirque de Soleil? I remember when we were VERY little, Aunt Etta took us to see the Lippizaner horses in Ocean City at the Convention Center. Love, Sarah Jane

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Doug. When you get around to the sky diving, give me a call. I want to jump again and Heather has been bugging me for years to take her. It's one of the greatest adrenaline rushes I have ever experienced.

Take care,

Thanks for the good thoughts Doug. Maybe the next time I'm down your way (my family lives near Tampa) we can get together and our kids can talk about Star Wars legos - if they're still into that by then.
Happy New Year to you and your family.
