i'm still here as well. check in here every once in a while. here's my cliffs:
got laid off from my irl job in the second round of layoffs in 6 month. they actually asked for volunteers this round. i was very happy to volunteer
earlier this year i had for the first time severe back spasms that took me out for a week+. had to start PT to rehab. finally got over it after a month or so.
after getting over my back, i tore my ACL, 2 parts of my meniscus, and broke a bone playing ultimate frisbee. i have consult with an orthopedic at end of may. surgery is almost a certainty
leaving for london/athens/sailing the Mediterranean later today
going to propose to my gf soon/on this trip
all things considered life is going well. getting old can be hard! reminder for everyone to stretch regularly, work out all parts of your body, especially your back, drink lots of water, hug your loved ones
would like to make it out to vegas this year but we'll see how post knee surgery goes
I've been lazy in checking the thread I guess. We bought a sailboat in Florida and were on it for 3.5 months. Currently back in Boise for the summer for granddaughters birth and wife's ACL surgery. We will head back to the boat in September. Pretty funny all the getting old talk. Most of you aren't much older than I was when all this started. It gets worse, sad to say. Still better than the alternative.
I'm watching Sam Greenwood right now in the triton poker Cyprus final table live feed on YouTube. That's why I thought to check here for activity.
Yearly-ish check in. Seeing folks from nearly two decades ago still checking in here is always cool to see :-)
I wouldn't know what to do if I sat down at an SNG anymore. I've been playing/studying cash for a couple years now and have been moving up stakes -- currently at 100NL, dabbling at 200NL and winning, yay.
Still travel for work every week, kids are grown and out of the house, and I'm in the best shape of my life having been on a fitness craze for a few years.

You really thought I was old enough to ask you otherwise?
Sorry, that was me... in response to an earlier post that Micro made about still having some phone numbers. Funny enough I think I had Blue's phone # at that time too but didn't search in my contacts so had forgotten.
I don't know if it's a setting or that my phone is full, but texts don't last long on my phone before they disappear. But, I still have your number!
Well, I'll be in the bay area at the end of the month. I'm bringing my youngest child up to Santa Cruz - she's xferring to UCSC this year. My oldest child graduated from Cal last Spring and started teaching HS in Oakland this year. Anyway, I should be around for about a week and will accept at least a beer if you're not broke and give one if you are. As the Grateful Dead said (actually Robert Hunter wrote the lyrics):
Reach out your hand, if your cup be empty
If your cup is full, may it be again
