Default To All of my CA Friends

Dear friends,

You may have noticed my absence of late. I owe to all of you to let you in on what has been going on in my life.

I have been drastically changing my life since mid-December. First, I began to eat better and exercise everyday. To date I have lost almost 60 pounds. In that same vein, I have quit using tobacco products. This hobbie's costs have now outweighed the benefits for me. As such, I am on an extended leave from CA.

I wanted to let you know how much your friendship and camaraderie have meant to me over the past 6 years. From Club Stogie, to my chat pals, to the Asylum, you all have deeply impacted my life, and for that I wish to thank you.

Wishing you all happiness, health, and blessings.

- MJ

Wish you all the luck with your endeavor for better health. I'm not sure I could give up cigars as it's a serious medium for relaxation to me. However, if you find it beneficial to cease cigar use, you'll receive not one critical word from me. Poke in every now and then and take care.

After seeing all of your responses I know this holds true. While I may be infrequent, I will still be sure to stop in and say hello to everyone.

Thanks again for being the friends I knew you all were!
