• John,

    I finally make it on Duckrabbit and…my blog is incorrectly attributed to Jim Merithew. But Jim’s awesome, so I’m sort of OK with that! Thanks for the kind words about the blog.



    • Oh bugger! A hasty dash out this morning with small boy and I did not do as thorough a job posting as I should have.

      Mea culpa. And ahh the irony!

      Please accept my apologies Roger.

      • John, no worries! Thanks for checking in. You and your small boy and me and my 17 year-old daughter who’s getting ready for prom tomorrow! They grow so incredibly fast.

        Again, thanks and cheers.

        • The way William is at 4….I can’t imagine 17…..gasp!

  • Hey Roger, apologies on behalf of the duck. That was our own visual myth and bad editing, but thanks for being cool.

  • Thanks David for being quick and cool too!
