RE: August allegories

Made it back from vacation and my mind drifted off to thoughts of the next time we meet.  We must be coming up on your busy season.  I wish could get more into my work, but each year coming back from vacation is harder and harder.

Hope to see you soon.

RE: August allegories

What I want is you…but until that time, lunch will just have to do.

If it’s the same place as before, I could meet around 1:30 for lunch at Bamboo, if you’d like.
