hey Scotto :)

Everyone in my clan is alive and kickin'
We're all a few years older (except for me, of course ... I'm immortal), but none the
worse for wear.
I came close to renting an apartment I saw advertised on the beach a couple months
ago ... man ... would it ever feel odd to live there again ... like some kind of freaky
time warp ...

Everyone is good over here as well, please say to the clan for me.

It's hard to find anything worth renting on the Beach anymore
