First off: my apologies to Derek for the last-minute submission. I’ve been visiting the in-laws for the last couple of weeks, so before I left I gave a very rough vid to my sister for processing and commentary, then fled out of state. Turns out she needed surgery the day after I left and is still recovering… terribly inconsiderate of her, but I try to push through these trials with the unparalleled grace and panache that has become my trademark. I grabbed her husband when I got back, and we cranked this out just as ever-loving quick as we could (actually, he cranked it out because I know absolutely nothing about editing video—thanks, Shade-tree Mike, for supporting the Olympic dream, and Missus Shade-tree Mike, hope you get to feeling better!

Just happy to be here…
