Firstly, thanks to Pops for providing me the opportunity to contribute. I’m not sure how often I will be able, but hopefully those times will be useful to his efforts — and perhaps even to some of you.
Secondly, I congratulate my Dad for his labor of love that is WWNH. He has dedicated the majority of his retired life to what each of you see here. Before I was accidentally prescient enough to recommend blogging to him, he spent the better part of 10 years writing different versions of what he thought might become a published book, and perhaps another of his great achievements.
In fact, a few years back, Sean Hannity from FOX News Channel came to SMU in Dallas for a speaking event. I hatched a plan where I would slip Dad’s latest outline in a manila envelope to Sean during autographs. Maybe he could help in some way. I did. DOA.
We’ve often chuckled over the past couple of years about how better it’s been that he never achieved the “finality” of a book. You see, this blog, each of you, and the inherent interactivity afforded by blogging on WWNH have provided him a much greater reward than the fame or fortune (neither of which he needs nor desires) that a book ever could.
I have also seen the difference that WWNH has made in many of your collective highnesses’ lives. That’s where the real rewards lay, not only for you, but also in the lives of Guy and his most beloved, Principessa Gracie.
Lastly, if you are or have been an active participant in the WWNH dialogue, you’ve probably made Guy’s day at some point, or many times over. If you are more of a lurker, I encourage you to get off the sidelines. The rewards of the collective knowledge and experiences of this community are unbelievable, but even more so for all when YOU contribute.
I’ve decided to.
