Last BobbyQ season in Seattle

Firs things first, I apologize for not finishing up last season but there were these things called GREs, actuarial exams & grad school applications.  All the studying left me with little motivation to write anything more than absolutely necessary.  I hope to have more stamina this year.

Now on to the meaty stuff.  This may be the last BobbyQ season in Seattle.  As many of you know, Shannon and I are making the big move to Ann Arbor, MI in August.  I know what you’re thinking… first the Sonics skip town and now BobbyQ?   Sorry,  we just couldn’t resist 11% unemployment and minus nine degree winters.  Not to mention all the great stuff that the state of Michigan boasts in their “Pure Michigan” add campaign:

What they failed to mention in that video is shortly after the “annual blaze of glory” comes the epic winter of despair – I’m getting cold feet thinking about how cold my feet will be.

Please if you can this summer, drop by for at least one BBQ.  Don’t think you can make it for any of the Seattle dates?  Perhaps you ccould take a trip out to Michigan and finish the season of in a blaze of glory… Bobby Q style.
