Oooops, I missed Howie's 11th anniversary yesterday. Shame on me!

Howie, we love your quirky sense of humor. You bring lots of smiles to this board. Let's have a great party! It's been a while.

Please let us know where you would like to go to celebrate. DorMill will be our guide, and I will gas up the QS jet, and Jack will have his cyber Yugo with the full body flame paint job and the swarm-of-bees muffler standing by to pick up those folks who are brave enough to ride with him.

So Howie, where will it be?

They needn't be brave. Foolish will do.

"Oooops, I missed Howie's 11th anniversary yesterday."

And miss, I missed your missing.


Where?
Well - since we are running a tad behind, praps we'd better stay
close - say Ashville,NC. Winery is a good one. Mountains are cool.
And dulicmers are plentiful.

Course, you have to put the hammer down at times.

Kayak-on-your-belly? That looks like fun and fits in well with the QS rubber dinghy.

"Kayak-on-your-belly? "

More like "bob and weave" for my belly.


And the winery is in the Biltmore Estates.

Hey, thanks for having an anniversary Howie! I'm up in Maine now and it gave me an excuse to have another lobstah roll! Of course I rode my bike the 25 miles to theClam Shack in Kennebunkport and back I don't feel guilty. Debbie and I stopped by the Biltmore Estate on our way to the Reunion of Fools Who Had Never Met back in 2004. I figured that, if I followed the Gardner's investing advice, I'd be able to afford a small place like that by now. For some reason all I could afford was a bicycle to ride around it! Oh well. Congratulations Howie!

Wow! The Biltmore Estate is FABULOUS!!! The gardens are so beautiful, especially in mid-summer. And the winery – what can I say? Whatever I have to say is a little slurred, after all that wine tasting. Howie, thanks for bringing us here.

Now, we are gathered in the Great Hall of the Biltmore Estate, let’s have the medal ceremony. Howie, please allow me to place this medal around your neck. It is made of precious platinum, encrusted with diamonds, and has the number eleven spelled out in emeralds and rubies. Wear it well, my friend. You’ve given us many laughs over these 11 years, but this is a serious moment of sincere appreciation.

Hugs.

Verna

Howie,

Wow, am I late to the party. It's all over except for a few bodies still hanging around too drunk to leave the Winery.
Howie, your sense of humor is one of the best things this old board has going for it. May you and your wit stay around for many years.

Congrats on your great achicevement.

Shelley

thank you all.

But excuse me - the custodians tell me I need to help dust the nic naks.

Quitting smoking requires having people you care about and that you
can talk to about the complexities of habits and forming new
ones.
Y'all are so important.
Never forget that y'all have helped me stay a non-smoker these years.
