"Welcome back my friends, to the show that (this week) ends", to paraphrase ELP.
This must be what it's like to be an astronaut; getting into the shuttle bus that's going to take him to the rocket in which he's going to be launched into a week long adventure that will have a major effect on the rest of his life. If he remembers all of the training and pushes all the right buttons he gets to live another day and go on with his life. If he freaks out and forgets the rules and screws something up, life as he knows it comes to a crashing halt.
Hmph... No pressure.
But, that which doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?
Thanks very much to all of you who have expressed your good luck wishes. I very much appreciate your kind and supportive thoughts. I'm hoping for positive results for each and every one of us. Especially my blogger buddies out there, and those of you with whom I've studied over the past two months. It would be deeply satisfying to see all of us pass. Of course, it would have been even more satisfying to see us pass last July! (;-)>
Some of us (all of us?) think we haven't memorized enough rules or written enough exams and can't play the game well enough to win. To each of us with those thoughts, I would ask us to remember the people with whom we studied in July. We each remember someone who, for whatever reason, we thought didn't stand a snowball's chance in hell of passing. Well look at them now, out there practicing law.
The odds are with us. We will beat this thing.
There's a good chance I won't post again until this thing's done, so let me say again ...
Best of Luck to Everyone!
