Due to the impending Hurricane Ian, the GRM offices will be closed September 28 through at least this coming Monday.

I had a few potential headlines. That one seemed catchiest.

I'm expecting all the moderators will be busy filling sand bags and the inmates will be running loose.

Y'all are probably getting worse rain up there than I am down here.  I'm just glad the crap the builder left behind in the lot next door is all under water right now.  Now to just worry about the Porta potty they left behind as well...

Oh yeah, David is wicked funny. Main downside of working from home now is that I miss the belly laughs I could count on at lunch with JG and David.

So by offices I guess you really mean phone lines/email, and also that hurricane selfies outside of the old HQ building are discouraged? cheeky

Yeah pretty much all of my stuff is ripped off from someone else at work when I think they're not going to be in a thread.

Quoted for truth. Though I have used your "or maybe just Wind" every time I've talked about being excited for last night's Earth, Wind & Fire concert (which was amazing, btw). Larceny is how funny people express their approval.

I was already reminded of a joke which was often told with Robin Williams as the subject:

A comedy club has a light hidden under the edge of the stage so that only the performer can see it. There are only two reasons it may be turned on. Reason 1: [insert notorious joke thief here] is in the club, so don't use your best material. Reason 2: A talent scout is in the club, so use your best material laugh

I see you have taken the master's course in spacial relations. 

Well done. 

I was lucky to get a Bentley in my shop last weekend, everything else will have to fend for themselves if we get any major wind. 

We will probably be closed Friday other than for emergency calls unless things change. They are talking 45-50 mph sustained and 70 mph gusts here. There is no good reason to be out on the roads in that.

Actually Steve Jobs, by way of Williams, by way of Faulker, Kurtz, and Stravinsky, which makes that "quote" all that much more ironic.
