And for the other 12 people in my division who were laid off today. Wilbert checks my blog regularly, and always has something nice to say. He's a true Southern gentleman, and I know he will go on to bigger and better things, but I will miss working with him.
"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end" (Roman philosopher Seneca).
To Wilbert (and Joe and Craig, and everyone else) - Cheers! Life has a funny way of working things out for us, whether we know it at the time or not. I know you will all go on to something better, and I wish you all the best!
To everyone else, sorry - it really wasn't a fun day today. Will try to be more cheerful tomorrow.
