Well Ryan I didn't realize Brad had my camera and took a couple of me... I was sitting at the Puter and was to numb( in shock ) to notice.. I think the First is where I asked Bill W, " WTF do you want ( With attitude )" The second is after Bill talked me into getting onto BC...




Yep its that flippin hot in FL.... 95-97F and 90-95% Humidity is nuts... All we could do was drip all over the place...

After Bill talked me into the house( we needed to cool off anyhow ) I went in and surfed BC for a few... Took me a little while to catch it...

I read the thread about the PIFing..... And had no idea... I kept reading... I looked at Brad and told him I think I have been PIF'd... WTF.... No way I got PIF'd .... Then I said " Brad did you know about this ?"..... I got silence for a few from Brad... LOL

Then I checked my Pay Pal and I was Mad and Numb all at the same time.... I had no idea what to say or how to act... Then Bill B called me... I told him to post for me as I just didn't have my thoughts together... Still haven't quite collected them all...

I am one of those people that would rather help others when and where I can.... But having someone give me something is hard for me to swallow... Its hard for me to accept large gifts like this.. For me this is a large pill to swallow..

I am greatful to all of you here on the forum... I am humbled more than my words can express... In all of the time I have been here I have been happy to help out where I could... Contributing to the PIF'* was something I always did when I could... But to be the recipient of a PIF gives me a whole new perspective on the giving nature of the members on this forum...

I am surprised that I have made such an impact on this forum and Members here that all of you would view me in such a way that you felt that I should be a recipient of a PIF... I never knew how much so till today...

Thanks Everyone

Yeah Buddy... I didn't realize you snapped a couple of me with my own camera... I didn't even notice until I went looking for the Head pics

Once again, this club has floored me and astounded me. It wasn't until PMing Don, just now, that it hit me, again.

The generousity and caring of the members of this club can not be explained. It defies all reason, logic, and common sense (especially in this day and age) that a bunch of ordinary folks from all walks of life and all parts of the globe, that for the most part have never met each other except for some words entered on a keyboard and viewed on a computer screen, willingly open up there hearts and contribute to help another.....just because they want to.

And you have a recipient that doesn't even think there is anything special about him that would make others want to help. He thinks that he is just doing what anyone else would/should do, and that is excactly what makes him an integral part of the club, and more importantly part of this unique and very special family we call BC.

I mean, really, an internet place just shouldn't be this way, and yet, somehow, it is....Absolutley amazing. What a great place we have all found and are priviledged to be a part of. Of course, it all of us that make it that way. Thanks to everyone.

I had a unique insight this time around.

I've seen some people that would struggle to buy spark plugs donate to this. The very fact that they did sends a very strong message about this Forum, and Don'* contribution to the members.

I'm very impressed. More impressed with the 5'* and 10'* in some cases than the larger contributions.

I'm very proud to be a member of such a great Forum.

I agree with everything everyone has said. I met Don out @ NEBF this year. He'* a great guy. What amazes me most about him is that we all know how big Bonnie trunks are and yet I had never met anyone who used their trunk the way Don does. It was amazing to me. 90% of the people there that would mention something they needed, it was Don always saying "I think I have one in my trunk. It'* open go look". That takes a unique person and a person that truely deserves an opportunity like this to be helped.

Congrats!
