My 5000th post!

Well, this is a milestone for me, my 5000th post!

In those 4999 posts I hope that in some small way I've given back even a fraction of what I've gained from you fine folks here in the C&V forum.

Thanks, it's been a great ride, and here's to another 5000 posts I hope!

Now you can take up safe cracking. You can't have any fingerprints left after that many posts. Congratulations.

Congrats!

Save a moment or two to ride this summer though.

Summer lasts about twenty minutes here in Minnesota, and you would want to be spending all of your time online.

Nice work. AT the rate I go it will take me another few years. I post a lot but then I fall off the face of the Earth every few months.

Really ?

I think I hit 2000 posts in my first month... shortly after joining I was in a work accident and was laid up for many months (the recovery is ongoing) so this has been a nice place to hang out when I could not get out.
