Who'da thunk it possible? This is post number 10,000 for me.

When I first joined TMF, I came here for two boards, both disability related.

Then I started reading some more about investing and managing finances. Since then I've learned a lot, but more importantly, I've met a lot of Fools both online and in person. And I've made a lot of friends here.

Along the way, I've also lost a couple of friends, so the journey hasn't always been a happy one. But, I'd do it all over again without hesitation.

I've never considered myself a very popular guy, even though once people get to know me, they generally end up liking me, but so far 137 people have picked me as one of their favorite Fools. I'm not even sure I knew that many people in real life before I came here, LOL. I know other people have lots more Loveies than that, but that's exciting for me.

My two favorite boards have always been the BBQ and HWTSC boards. I've got several others that I have fun posting on with the joking, seriousness and information shared, but I feel like I've established two different families from these two particular boards.

I almost left when TMF went to pay-for since I was only posting on the two disability boards at the time, but for whatever reason DG@TMF decided that he wanted me to stay and he comped me a year. I didn't want to waste his gift so I went looking for other boards to join and found y'all and HWTSC.

Thank you so very much David! That would have to be one of the best gifts I've ever received! I'll cherish this gift for a long time to come since I know I'll be lifelong friends with a lot of the people I've met here.

Y'all might see a coupla new names show up in this thread, but it's because I want to share this post with others I know as well, but could only choose one board to post to. It was a little hard choosing between this board and HWTSC, but since this is a little more relaxed on postings, and we try to most times stay somewhat serious on HWTSC, I chose this board. But, HWTSC is just as important to me as y'all are!

Anywhoo, thank you everyone for your friendship and support. I truly appreciate every bit of it!!
