One More Big Adventure

I've got one more thing to do before I cash in my chips.

Oh, I know I've probably got thousands of trash cans to haul to the curb and billions of leaves to rake in my future. And, God willing, many more hours at work and church and having a wonderful time with my wife, friends, and family.
