You should hear the things his friends call him. Collidog is just one sample. So, he's driving off to Montana with three of his most sensible friends to see two other dude-friends. I won't see him for a whole eleven days. It's something close to a tragedy for me and something close to Christmas for him. He's the balance, the steadiness, the calm thinker of the house when Brett's at work. I told him that he might check the insane asylum if I'm not home when he gets back.
