    ^^^ My favorite quote from my favorite book by my favorite author.

    I made it back to Tennessee this afternoon. What a wonderful rally! Thanks to all that made this event a reality. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

    I was impressed by the spontaneous moment of silence for Lloyd Saturday night. You people are great.

    Ya know, I feel fairly new to this group. But I gotta tell ya, I've never felt more myself or more accepted than I do with all of you.

    I'm not usually one to get all verbose and yes, I'm a couple cocktails deep, but I'm proud to know all of you.

    Thank you for your friendship and acceptance. Cheers.

    Especially since, probably right around the time that pic was taken, that slanket was soaking up stray ATF.

    See what I mean? Eveything is okay around you FFs.

    thanks to all of you who donated to Lloyds send off...it will be much appreciated by the family. If any of you would like to contribute any more I would suggest going to Lloyds funeral page which is below. I really...really appreciate all your sympathy and your shoulders during the last couple days of the rally after our little buddy's death...I'll never forget it

    I think the rally was the roller-coaster of highest highs and lowest lows.:cry

    Unfortunately I was only able to make it up for the last day of the rally but needless to say, I had a blast. I'm a long time lurker on the forum and my 'real' job keeps me from participating in a lot of events but hopefully that will change and I can be more involved as our new business grows.

    I was able to sign on as a last minute sponsor and our first shipment arrived just in time to make it up for Saturdays raffle. With the last minute thrash, I forgot my camera at home so if anybody has any photos from the raffle on Saturday night showing any of the bags we gave away, I'd love to get a copy to use on our new website. Please contact me and I'm sure I can find something to trade in exchange for the use of any photos! Thanks to everyone for the warm reception and great time!

    Why you taking pictures of my junk:huh

    I took very few pics this time around. After I snapped the lens off the D90, I've been mostly banned from that camera. I don't think the missus even took it out of the case the whole time.
