I had a great night, spend with friends, true friends, those who matter and those who bothered to stick around. Saw some old faces, 25 years old in some cases, some people who were more difficult to speak too, and others who give you continued strength. Above all the 'dregs' were not there, which meant for a good night.
Thanks to Terry for getting me out. Couldn't have asked for someone better to go with. To everyone else, thanks for your warmth and generosity, in making me feel relaxed and happy!
