A Hero's Welcome

I don't know what I was expecting for my first day back to work but it sure was fun. Of course I had a huge load of work waiting for me since I've been gone for a week but it was fun to get a lot of congratulations. They even had a celebration party at lunch time and Hi-Z bought everyone lunch at Pat and Oscars. I thought that was a much better choice than the champagne some people were suggesting. I ordered the ribs and chicken. Our new president pointed out to everyone what a huge achievement this was because while we all know it was an important milestone in a major deal, I don't think too many people realize how many people have tried to do what we did and failed. Big name companies have spent many millions of dollars on this. In any case it was a fun day and I've received a pat on the back, now I've got to make a whole lot more modules just like the famous module #96.

Happy Valentines Day Lisa, I miss you.
