    Mike,
    I know we dont know each other that well but I remember years ago sending you pictures of my office as you wanted some ideas and we have swapped posts and PM's a few times. Somehow I missed you at the Michigan show last year too. Your success story is commendable and I too offer Congratulations............

    Hey Bro...wanna tip?

    When you write a book of two finger typing, copy and paste it in an email to yourself, so you always have it.
    Damn the zappers! A quick edit and it's right back, like it never went anywhere.

    I knew of you way back on the old Forum. You probably knew me as "guest".

    PS...I don't drink either....not since I was a minor have I messed with it.

    Congrats Mike, I would say lets go have drink and celebrate but I dont drink lol Just kidding it take a strong person to do what you have done for 5 yrs i am very proud of you. I saw my dad quit after 35 yrs of drinking a fifth of whiskey a day so I know it takes a strong person to it. Congrats again and keep it up bro

    Congrats

    and a salute to Miranda for standing by you through that.

    and a Thank you for all that you have done on here, and related to here. From you letting me old Terry's voice after he passed away by playing a recorded message you had of him into my voicemail. I apprecite that so much he was the first taxidermist I corresponded with on here, that meant a lot to me. To getting us fired up for charity and getting your haircut. Your usually quite attactive taxi groupies that would stop by and hold up signs usually about that goober with the fish eyes. ;) (I miss that by the way ;D) , I was not on here regular for over a year and I am sure I missed plenty. To the granddaddy of all helps the kidney. Screw giving the shirt off your back, you'll give literal parts of yourself.

    Again congrats on the time sober and here is to many many more.
