My wonderful wife Jeri deserves a big round of applause. She is as responsible as anyone for making sure the book gets done. She takes what I write, edits it (always difficult since I'm always two weeks behind schedule, so she has to put in 18-hour days to get the editing done), puts it in book form, deals with the printer (including finding a new printer this year), handles the orders, and basically does all of the huge amount of grunt work necessary to keep things running around here. And she does all of this during the holiday season. . .usually while one or both of us has a head cold or the flu or something.
So, three cheers for Jeri Sickels, my wife, my partner in business, my partner in life, my friend. None of this would be happening without her.
