Nick on way home for R&R

I spoke with Nick early this morning. He is on his way home for R&R. He will likely arrive within the next five days.

Jon & Family coming to visit

Jonathan, Stephanie, Pheobe and Crash (dog) will be coming to Dallas to visit for a week. They plan to be here around 20 Feb. It will be good to have them home for a visit and great that they will be able to visit Nick while he is here on R&R as well.
