An Open Letter to the Company

     Well Company, today is moving day. By the time the sun sets on Friday, September 5 we will be ensconced in our new Worldwide Headquarters, in name if not in practice. However, it's times like these when one tends to look back at what is behind, instead of what lies ahead. As such, I want to talk about you for a while.
     I want to thank each and every one of you for being along with us all this time. I don't think that I can put into words how much it means to me that you sit down every day, hop on your Compaq Presario 633 or your TI-83 Plus or whatever you are using, and at least pretend to cruise my blog. But in all seriousness, you are looking around, I know it, I can tell. My unpaid interns keep track of it. And I appreciate it. Without you there would be no Big Dave and Company. You are my reason for being. You are my inspiration. You are my muse. And I have apparently turned into an Air Supply song. But I digress.
     I do write everything for you. It is my goal each time I post to bring a smile to your face, no matter how small it is. And if I can't get you to smile I want to at least make you think. And I hope I do. Because you make my think too. My quest to bring you something new and entertaining every day brings out the best in my creativity and limited writing ability. And it forces me to find new and exciting ideas and stories to bring you. It makes me more worldly, because I have to sift newspapers and websites from all around the globe to let you know what's going on. So it's a symbiotic relationship. You help me become a better person and I am hopefully helping you become one too.
     But if there was some booze around, I would totally be toasting you right now. Because Big Dave and Company is really all about you, and nothing about me. So thank you for everything. I don't think that I can put into words how much you've meant to me. Please keep reading, and I will keep writing. And we can keep up this mutually beneficial relationship. Please give us a little slack here as we adjust to our new surroundings in our Worldwide Headquarters, for we may miss a day or two here or there. But we will be back and we will keep going strong. And we will miss everyone from the old Worldwide Headquarters. But we will always be here for you. And I hope that you will be here for us.

Big D. Where are the new headquarters? Jimmy James mentioned you moved, but did not mention where.
