FauxAmish Thank you for the kind words and I remember xbanker!
The dog in the picture is Argus. He's my son's service dog. He helps me get Matthew to school etc. My retinas started falling apart in 2014 but after numerous surgeries/scares I'm 20/20 in my right eye and may end up 20/20 in my left once it heals from my most recent surgery.
FGi was a huge part of my life back in the day and some of my favorite people of all time came from there. I'm glad to see it still exists in some form and hope to be more active than I've been.
