Hey Victor - howdy, howdy. I think Joe wuz making reference to how many posts I've tossed at the family here. Thank goodness, I ain't leading, tho!

Sure wish you were gonna make CCR '06, Bud. We'd take a run over to the Park Vista and shake Polly up a leetle!!! Stay tuned, I still might do that myself!!

Take care, Vic.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Naw. That won't happen again until 10K . . . or when I buy my new Wing. Which ever comes first.

BTW, Joe. Thanks for the congrats. Butt, I gotta tell ya, I been practicing on posting for a VERY long time. I don't know when they started counting (I guess along with my joined-up date maybe), butt I been around these hallowed cyberhalls since '99 when it wuz the e-groups webpages run by Bruce Wagner. Much has evolved from that, since the primary use then wuz to just message back and forth - none of the tangent thangs we're using/seeing on these forums. It wuz fun to be in on the ground floor and be a part of this wonderful on-line community - the growing pains don't seem so salient in retrospect, butt we did have 'em - now and then!!

And to end this leetle bit of nostalgia roaming, it's hard for me to imagine the state of our family 5 years hence - butt I'm gonna do my best to rub elbows and keyboards with y'all for the duration.

Hi, Pete - that's a good one. I'd forgotten all about 'unsubscribing' and how much fun we used to have with that leetle 'exercise'!! And wuzn't it Victor who had a funny 'corporate' take on how to 'unperscribe' or ..... ??

Ian - we'all know you wear a white hat around these parts; don't think I've ever seen ya without it!!!! Tell ya what - you gotta date right here in 5 years, discussing all the chatting we'll do 'til then. Or better yet, make it at CCR 2011 (or sooner!!). That'll give ya plenty of time to train a nanny so you can bring along the 'family'!!

Best regards, Ian.
