Thanks so much JP, I truly feel the same way every day. It will be 8 years pretty soon and that is amazing to think, lots has happened. I was wondering, did you know Bruce before Bud2? I remember sitting in the cart talking to Bruce (after I kicked Buzzbeejr's butt in fishing) and that's when Bailey came walking up. It was so neat to meet people as they filtered in and (out of character for me) I didn't mention to a lot of people I was Beemaster. I just introduced myself as John, not thinking I should have been a little more of a welcome wagon :roll:
I've always said, we are all members, just some of us have a few more buttons to push than others, and it's true. But the people at Bud2 I surely want to see again at Bud3 and maybe a few of those who couldn't make it will get the chance this time too - ummmm new people at Bud3, it's exciting to see the even grow!
Speaking of which, that beard is getting to take on a life of its own, you going for the ZZ Top look or does it beat a hood and veil most of the time :-D
