    I do not like leaving small comments…Because I have all the time in the world. I’m not comparing other folks who may have jobs, well maybe I am but I think about you a lot JAY. This blog you do, busted nut, is awesome. I shared it with my roommate from Penn State who also had cancer and she thought it was awesome. You are awesome and your fiancé is awesome I want to meet!
