Hi and bye

I just thought I would let everybody know that I am taking an extended and unknown length break from BF.
The forums have gotten very repetitive lately and a certain user or 2 have matched or exceeded my tolerance threshold. Right now I am just working, working and trying to follow Rodney Atkin's adage/song.

Thanks and good luck.

Never say "bye", TG... Just say "see ya later!" And we will, I hope-when all is better.

Hope you come back TG.... it's summer anyway. You should be out riding when you're not working. BF always picks up in the Fall. Good luck and hope to see you back at some point.

I was going to start a "where the **** is TG" thread, but I'm lazy. Glad to hear you weren't run over by a bulldozer or something.

Take care of yourself.

I'll miss joking around with you, Tex, but completely understand where you're coming from. Stay safe out there and thanks for the help and encouragement that you (and everyone else) gave me in developing the program. Without all of you, the program wouldn't have been the success it turned out to be.

Keep stalking!
