Mike, sorry, I would have responded to this sooner, but when I saw it the other day, I wasn't in a position to respond the way I saw fit (it would have had to have been a very short post) and I was away from the internet until tonight.
First, I love the song and you had me rolling on the floor! Did you put the words to it? Serious talent there fella
Mike, you have been the most amazing person to get this whole thing going and to keep it going in a forward and upward direction. I know I'm not the only one that can log on and it's more than just visiting with friends, it's like coming home. HF is more than just a bunch of random friends to me, we're a family.
Granted, every family has at least one member that everyone would like to strangle at some point or another, but it wouldn't be a real family if everyone got along all the time
I can only say this for myself, but there has been more than one time in my life that HF helped me keep my sanity and several times, it has helped me change my outlook on life. I've learned more in the years I've been here than I ever thought possible and that's all thanks to you for starting and keeping the ball rolling as smoothly as you did (in spite of those of us who were determined to throw a speed-bump in the path occasionally).
For all of that, I'll be forever grateful and I really hope to see you around sometimes on here, shooting the s*** with us. You'll be sorely missed, Mike.
