Thank you, and I hope things are going well for the both of you also. Debbie & I are sending our oldest to college this fall. Chris is heading off to Texas A&M, where he'll major in economics, and then move into Int'l affairs or public policy, with the intent of going on to law school (at least that's the plan so far). At this point he's saying he'd like to work in the State Dept as a diplomat of some sort. It'll be interesting to see where all of this actually takes him. I know I never dreamed of ever being on point for advanced prosthetics & orthotics research for the DoD, but I enjoy almost every day of it. Our second and youngest starts high school this fall. It's strange to think that they were 9 and 5 when I came to TATRC. The days sometimes drag, but the years seem to always fly.
If the chance ever came up, I'd enjoy having lunch with you one day to reconnect and see what you're involved in these days. I've gotten to know Greg Mogel through Facebook, and have had some good chats with CC at various conferences. I'm sorry we didn't establish these sorts of ties when we were all here inthe same place, but definitely better late than never!
I'm trying to move the prosthetics portfolio into social media, helping to form and expand a "Community of Practice", but there are unique challenges with that, given the nature of awarded research, IP, etc., not to mention how easy the DoD makes it to do almost anything new. Watching and engaging through MedTech-IQ is very helpful. I can be reached most easily through my personal email at email@example.com
Please say hello to Karen and Sade for me, and travel safe.
Jeff, thanks ... it's nice to engage with some familiar folks again ... I've bounced some comments on this beta site back to CC ... hope you're enjoying the summertime (I assume you're spending time in FL?).
