Good post, Greg.

My middle name should have been "can you get this for me."

Also, people with 8' ceilings: Do not install ceiling fans in the middle of the room. Please place them over tables only.

Thank you.

Ron, you crack me up! From what you said, you're going out on a LONG limb!

(At 5' 11" I am actually feeling short amongst all of you!)

Allison, I assure you any pun was unintentional. In other words, I really have to work at the funny.

My daughter, Alison, is only 4'2". Of course, she's only 7. My 12 year old is 5'8" and rising. I'd love for her to top out at 5'11" or even 6ft.

Maybe I'm just pissed I'm 5'9"?

I got your back, Robb--I was just going to post something about how I never seem to have a problem getting into deadlifting position.

Well, it was a pretty good almost-water-through-the-nose moment for me...but my brain seems to seek such things out.

Nice name for your younger daughter. And there's hope for your older daughter! I was 5'8" at age 12 too! I towered over all the kids and a few teachers too! I wanted to get to 6' but, alas, it was not to be...
