I am not sure if I told you about one of my first friends here in Australia. I was taking a stroll down on Manly Beach as I was getting familiar with the area and noticed the little guy on my shirt. He stayed there for a while, chilling comfortably.
It has been six months, and a lot can happen in six months.
Wherever you are Claude, I hope all is well.
I hope you got out of that financial difficulty you mentioned. I hope your wife allowed you back in the house and you stayed off the alcohol. I hope you had a great summer and visited the places you promised to with your kids. You seemed to have your head screwed on and I am confident you are heading in the right direction.
It is funny that sometimes you meet someone and the honesty just pours out, like you have known them for ten years. Claude is the bugification of honesty, and I admire that.
Keep your head up Claude, there is light at the end of the tunnel and you will reach it, I know it.
