Oh, my

muddybootI don’t think I can fully express my gratitude for the reception thrown in my honor this evening by the Oak Ridge Partnership. Thank you for all the kind and generous words and the chance to see old colleagues and friends. New ones, too. I am stunned by the outpouring of praise for my work since I announced my retirement several weeks ago. Wow. I don’t know if I’m deserving, but it feels really good to have your career validated on multiple fronts.

Thank you and thank you again.

And, yes, I am now the proud holder of The Muddy Boot Award. That’s something I didn’t see coming.
