Whiskerino is about community, about brotherhood in a way. I think we all know and understand that.

Last night, I had the wonderful opportunity to see Waterdeep play an acoustic show for their hardcore fans in Nashville. I knew the photo that I wanted for the final shot for Whiskerino: my friend John, who got me the ticket; me; and Don Chaffer of Waterdeep. John told Don about it, and he agreed to do it immediately. I think you'll agree that three bearded guys hugging each other at midnight after sharing a great and emotional night of music is a good reflection on Whiskerino.

Speaking of community, I have registered Whiskeroonis.net. I'm going to build that to aggregate Flickr, Vimeo, Twitter, blogs, etc. into one way for us to keep up with each other. We'll leverage the Google Docs spreadsheet that @michaeljstraub has put together. That, and I've followed every Whiskerooni on the Twitter now.

I love you all and wouldn't have missed the final Whiskerino for anything. @mackle, thank you for bringing together the awesome.

You're a phenomenal human being. I want to settle in and say more later, but I just needed to put that down right now as I'm thinking it.

Though I'm still confounded that I missed two breakfasts and the evening-time hangout with you, I'm resolved to make amends around the next shuttle launch. By my count, they'll take a week to really make it happen anyways, so we'll have time to hang.
We reorganized my house and I think the space is more comfortable. So plan on crashing here again anytime you want.

Your Macy's portrait-style pictures are still among my favorites. Always enjoyed your contributions in this 'rino and 07 (my first). Whiskeroonis sounds awesome and I can't wait to see it.

Cheers.

Geoff, I really like being able to say I know a dude at NASA, even if it's not 100% accurate don't let me know, I want to keep this one thing.

Sincerely, come to visit again soon.
