July 6th was our 17th wedding anniversay. Alas, Rhonda and I were half a world apart. We did speak together on the phone and I sent her flowers but you know it’s not the same thing. So, some of our good friends here invited me over for dessert and arranged to have Rhonda’s likeness present. It was very funny and we had a great evening, including a Phase Ten tournament. Thanks guys, it’s good to have friends like you around. However, I would really prefer having Rhonda here. Just one week left before we are reunited - I think we can make it.
