and so goodbye

Fin was farewelled yesterday with one of our traditional Friday afternoon teas ~ mucho delicious edibles + champagne for the collection of happy winos I work with. Friday afternoons are pretty much a bust as far as real work goes, as we can find something to celebrate pretty much any Friday we choose: people starting, people leaving, birthdays. We knew Scotty (our new-ish manager) had gotten into the spirit of things when he announced one Friday morning that he'd bought a cake so we could have an afternoon tea to celebrate it being the Friday before a long weekend. Niiiice.

Cramer came back to visit as we'd teed up with him to use one of his amazing photos (framed) as a present. Nice to see him as always. The wonderful news is that he'll be working with us about 10 hours a week for a few months as a consultant. That is going to make a huge difference.
