Also, I wandered over to marrilee's camp, where a half dozen people were seated at a picnic table. There was also an empty seat at the head of the table, so I joined them. I looked them over and cleared my throat to get their attention. I said this:
"I'm probably wondering why you've all gathered me here today.
Times are tough for all of us ...
and you're afraid I have to let you go."
