Apologies To All
Just a quick apology to everyone if I seem a bit off. I just recently learned that my mother has cancer yet again for the third time so I am a bit distracted.

Mason, no apologies needed. We all get stressed at times and when a family member is in need it makes life even that much more stressed. You've been dealing with so many issues lately (haven't you had a series of truck issues lately and I know you were sick not long ago - a week in a hotel room waiting for death?)

Sending strength to you and your mom. My grandmother has fought cancer three times and the last time was in '95. She's been cancer free since them. She's 88 and I bet if she got cancer she'd whoop its butt again.
