Let me jump in here before you really go-go. Just wanted to thank you for all your beautiful, thoughtful insightful and humorous posts over the years. I am quite sure you are in the top ten of all quantitative posts(numbers) and for sure THE top of all qualitative posts, in my humble opinion!! You have without doubt helped many of us along the way. I saw you as one of the most common sensical (is that a word?, ..wordmeister) on this forum. You steered stray debate to a common ground and brought back many from the edge or their.... "rants" with your humor.

We are forever grateful. Keep on keeping on and I applaud your decision. But I also will miss your posts and dearly hope you will drop on in from time to time.
Keep the Faith, and Peace to you also, my brother!

Also the best part of you (you had me at Hello...) is that we can still access your stories, photos and poems on your blog, and I know you will continue to be "In the Shop"!!!

I was here the day you first arrived, believe I welcomed you quickly. You have always been a great asset to HW PC, and always will.

Sorry about your cat. My daughter lost one of her Siamese cats recently, it was 20 years old.

Waiting for my CT a week from Friday for the strong pain I keep having on my left side, right below my ribcage. My PCP is very concerned that it may be colon cancer. Hoping not. Wish you well on yours.

Not sure what became of my signature? Didn't realize it disappeared.

Ya done good.

Fitting for your farewell to be your already-written Movember tribute poem posted here in the 2017 Movember thread.
