Congrats Falc, I'll have to drop you a line when I'm in Colorado next summer, it'd be a good excuse to drive that way and buy you a drink.

Now that's a heartwarming story in time for the holidays.  Glad to hear things are going well!

Thank you all for the warm responses. And Paelos, I can't believe your family is here! Edwards is a little west of Vail but it's where our office is and where I start and finish my shift every day. This valley is so small that I am pretty sure I've met your parents before. I'm also pretty sure one of these days I am gonna be your driver to or from DIA.

It's less likely these days because they only live there half time. They are mostly in St. Simons GA now during the non-summer seasons (they love Summer in Edwards, Dad's a huge golfer and member over at CCR).

Next time we come up there for the summer (we go yearly) I'll ask!

Congratz Falc!  I grew up in Colorado and do so miss the scenery, not so much the thin air.

Happy for you, man.

I imagine living and driving in CO that you've learned the video you linked is not considered bad weather in winter states. If it ain't ice or a complete whiteout (zero visibility), it's nice weather.

I work regularly with an Italian vendor for our media dispenser, he's a politically active commie hippy and it's fun when he visits to get a couple beers in him and hear his ranting about Italian politics.

Well that was a nice uplifting read for a Monday morning. Good on you and I'm glad things are working out.

Great news!  Glad everything is going great for you.  Was really nice to meet up with you some years back in Rome, and I'm happy everything has worked out so well.  It's always tricky moving somewhere and trying to settle yourself, but you are very personable so it doesn't surprise me you've done so well.

I've had a similar feeling since I joined the foreign service.  It's a job I love and can see myself doing till I retire or die, and its an amazing feeling to realize you've reached something like that in your life.  Hopefully the current admin doesn't destroy it before that happens, but I remain optimistic!   awesome, for real

Great to hear man. Sometimes this place ain't so bad.
