    And here I sit, a thousand miles away.
I feel you pal. This summer my kids have lost their first teeth, learned to ride a bike, how to swim, my daughter swam to the dock - a big deal. My kids are growing and doing a lot of firsts and I'm gone.

My wife is also 7 months pregnant. I feel awful about this.

I tell myself it's all worth it. Well, it had better be. SOme things can't be replicated, some things are just gone forever. I'll never be able to see my son take his first ride without training wheels.

That kills me.

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon...

I hope you get to spend some quality time with your family soon, tng. And congrats on the new one coming!

Thanks old friend.

I will make it up to them soon. I'll be much better than the dad in the Harry Chapin song :)
