Good Bye California :(  
Well I never thought I'd have to say this but as of August 22nd 2008 I will be saying goodbye to my home of 32+ years of San Diego CA and relocate to Irving Texas.

Why am I moving to Texas? Well as some of you know for my day Job I work for Chase Home Finance (JP Morgan Chase Manhatten Bank) I have been with that Job for over 6 years now. I had been working in the Quality Control area. I recently applied for a Management position and I got it. I am going to be the new Office Trainer (SME = Subject Matter Expert) So now I am in the process of up rooting my life and putting everything I own in boxes. (except Charlie hehe)

I honestly don't know how long I am going to be in Texas but it seems like this may be a long term thing. I hope to some day return to CA but I don't honestly know what the future will hold for me.

My only regret is that I wish I would have had time to get to know all of you better, I'm just not very good at being social (thanks to my family) having said that I'm sure I probably wouldn't be missed too much but I will miss you all non the less. Hopefully I will be able to find a furry community in the Dallas / Irving area and be able to restart my life over again, hopefully correct some of the mistakes I've made in life. I still plan to still attend FC and also now span out to MFF and AC. Unfortunally Califur will not be a con we would be attending any more because its just not a con that we can attend to justify the expense of going to. I can still be reached via FA and my email.

If for some reason this move turns on to "good bye" rather than "see you later" I hope your path will take you where you want to go and I wish you all the best. For me I leave behind everything and every one I've ever known to start my life over again. Hopefully I have learned from my mistakes. Good bye So-Cal furries and San Diego furries (or is that the same I can't tell anymore *sigh*) For those of you who truly cared to be a friend thank you. I love you all none the less. I know I wasn't the easiest person to get close to and for that I am truly sorry.

With a heavy heart, respectfully yours

Hey dude, congrats on the new position, I am sure things will work out in the long run. As much as I would not like to see you go, I am optimistic about the future. More pay, cheaper rent... Hey, I like them circumstances. And besides we still can see each other at cons. I'll probably have to try MFF or AC some year.

We gotta do something together before you leave, party maybe?

And one last thing... Thank you for everything you have done for me, you've gotten me out of a rather bleak time and you have no idea how appreciative I am for that.

Keep in touch.

*hug* Thanks Mike that means a lot to me. There are people who I am going to miss seeing you're one of them. I glad for the time we had to get to know each other. I will keep in contact and ill look forward to seeing you at cons. I should still be able to go to FC I already have a cinfirmed dealers table there for 2009 so I will be there in still on the fence anout MFF this year tho I really want to go cuz the theme "North to Alaska" is right up my alley. hehe.

Anyhow I will keep in touch and I wish you all the best.

Kindest regards,

Balto

Moving to Irving
Balto,

We in Irving welcome you with open arms. And, as board member of the DFW (Dallas Fort Worth) Humane Society, I'm thrilled to have another animal lover in our midst. (www.dfwhumane.com) Good luck with the move and pack your air conditioner!

Well holy shit! Congrats dude! I haven't been around at all for a while (tks gas prices, etc) but I'm sure I'll still get to see you at cons.

I may have to see if I can get down that way before you leave, though I don't know if it's doable right now :(
