Thanks, part two
Tue, 7 Dec 1999 05:51:22 -0600
Knew it. I knew I would forget a few.
I would like to say thank you to Greg Benesh who is the one to call
on when it is rocket science.
Thank you Connie Pettit, for sharing the nerves and excitement and
anticipation preceding Wood Badge training and for listening to my
ranting When I got the wrong paperwork. BTW these are the first two
people from the list that I met live and in color and who share ashes
from an actual campfire that was very special to all who were there.
Thank you to my evil twin, Crazy Dr. Bob who I know is lurking out
there somewhere. The Scoutmasters are not so boring when you are around.
Thank you Jonah Triebwasser, May you stay always as young as you
look in that picture. And congratulations on the award. Unions are the
only thing that protects a worker from management. One of the few things
I miss from the USA.
Thanks to Calvin Gray, Auntie Beans, Jan Mussler, Dave Loomis, Cliff
Golden, Terry Slade and all the giraffes in the London Zoo!
No, No, NO, thanks to anyone else I may have not thanked. Thanks for
what? Well, for what I mentioned and much more that I didn't and
especially thank you all for keeping me thinking.
Sometimes I have begun to reply to a post and the act of composition
will open a path that I didn't see at first and upon following it I will
decide not to send, but to take this new vista and greedily keep it for
myself, polishing it and using it for MY boys first, before sharing . I
would not come up with half the stuff I do without the seeds that drift
in from the list.
You have saved my meetings, solved my problems and even on occasion,
made me look wise! With the wisdom of the list and the plain old common
sense of y'all, I can at least look like I know what I am doing.
Again and most important thank all y'all for the stimulation, for
the questions, for the opinions. Thanks for keeping me thinking.
Whoops, one more...Steven G. Tyler, Esq.

I get paid to surf. No brag--just fact. Try it yourself.
