Oh sure, the number will change next to my name but for right now 1000 it is! Don't normally post this section but what the heck, after 1000 posts a guy should branch out a little. Some will know me some will not. Some will appreciate my sometimes wayward humor, some will again, not. Regardless, it has been a fun-filled journey to 1000. Been in a few scuffles along the way but not many if you are the type to look at percentages. I have many new friends because of this site, most of whom I have yet to meet in person. Yet, I feel as I have known them for years. Plus there are many whom I would trust with my most valuable posessions. BOC has meant many things to me. Mostly I find that it is a place you can always turn for good advice, a warm hello, a great tip, friendship and camaraderie. Thanks to all of those who make this great site a reality. There are a few big names on here that get a lot of attention and we do very much respect and appreciate all of them but I want to say that for me it is more a sum of the WHOLE membership that makes this place so wonderful. Each and every one contributes their unique personality to this site and I have found that to be a good thing 99.99% of the time. (Thats after you factor out JW and DH):smile2::smile2::smile2Hey, couldn't resist fellers). (Oh yeah, Big George too). I see that some (well only one....TeaysValleyGuy.... has surpassed 10,000 posts) Holy Cow,what a machine! Many others have multiple thousand posts. I am a noob with only 1 multiple of 1000 but it was a fun ride to this point. Thank you to those that have patiently listened to my drivel. I try to be witty and charming but alas sometimes it fails me. :confused2: BOC is GOOD, and YOU BOCCERS are what makes it great! Signing off for now to reflect on my 1000 pearls of wisdom.:big_smile_2: See...... I am still cracking myself up.
