Happy belated birthday greetings. For those who haven't met him, he looks much better than his profile picture.

Ok, you're Ohio Louis and that was St. Louis Louis. Sorry.\\

He was showing a fantastic Kirk with Terraplane stays, however!

How's your health?

Ah yes, the infamous St. Louis Louis.

Health is okay, thanks. I'm hoping to get back into shape over the winter.

Same from me; I've been away from the Internet for a few days. I've also had the opportunity to meet Louis and he is a congenial and genuinely nice guy, and his avatar does capture his gentle nature.

A few months ago though, he changed the picture to the sinister and nasty-looking "Soup Nazi" character from Seinfield with the iconic tagline, "No soup for you." I was on Bikeforums reading a post from him and my wife passed by. She then chided me and asked what kind of information I was posting. She said "Look at that guy (Louis' new avatar); he could be a drug dealer!"

This avatar reminds me of Mr. Natural - benevolent and mellow.
