We hope you can join us in another howl (like last year)

It's hard to believe that it's been almost a year since the ashes blast-off for Hunter. Johnny was such a special friend to arrange all that for him and his family. I remember that night well here at the Zone. Thanks for setting this up Liz and DITHOT.

Looking foward to seeing you both there. I'll be logging in from my vacation destination. All digits crossed that I'll be able to do it. :hope:

Thanks for the reminder. A year... it seems like yesterday...
I was given the 'weird' badge but I think everybody's weird and that's the key to it. We should celebrate our individuality, not be embarrassed or ashamed of it.

Hard to imagine that a whole year has gone by. I'll be here for the howl! :cool:

I won't be around to join in Sunday, but thought I'd share this seredipitous experience.

My sister and I went to see Lyle Lovett and his Large Band in Cohassett, Massachusetts this past Thursday night. It was a fantastic show in a great, intimate setting. Eighteen incredible musicians played and sang their hearts out, and Lyle tossed in some signature dry wit.

It was a true delight, capped off by the choice of music played through the band's sound system as we exited - Spirit in the Sky.

Coincidence? I think not. :applause2:

I'm looking forward to it as well. I remember being stuck to the computer that night last year, I enjoyed every minute of it! It struck me as odd when I read the announcement... Has it been that long? Surely not! But indeed it has been almost a year since our sweet Johnny helped make a reality Hunter's last wish.

I plan to Howl much, much louder this year and toast Hunter with a coke. I might jazz it up and put it in a nice glass, if I see it fit.

Gonzo, the important thing is to have lots of ice. :lol:

Oh my. A whole year already? I'll try to stay up for the howl, but that's a little after my bedtime on a school-night!
