I have written and maintained SOS for four years and a month now, and I have enjoyed it immensely.
However, there comes a time when, like an athlete or an actor, you have to decide if you want to go out on top, or if you want to go on longer than you should and appear foolish for hanging on too long.
So the time has come to pass the torch to Ken O'Brien, who has done an excellent job over the last week covering for me.
During that time, I've been able to get over being sick, watching my daughter run in another road race, play baseball and hockey with my son, go golfing (the first time in three years), and scrape and paint a section of my house.
Granted, the last activity almost made me stay, but life for me is about my family, and always putting them first.
So thank you to everyone!
I know some will be disappointed, others joyous.
I'm putting me first, and Ken will take this to the next level, so don't expect any less
