no not that one....thank God!!! My 2 year anniversary here at Club Stogie!
I just looked at the date and realized that I joined this wonderful family on August 2nd two years ago. Last year I was so very excited about my anniversary, I actually posted my story a day early! HERE
Well so much has changed since then. Most importantly, I became a Dad and realized that I can't spend as much time on CS as I'd like to or smoke as much either. That's ok, Alana is more precious than any cigar or forum!
In the past year, I actually was able to take three BOTLs of my virtual herfing buddies list and shared some cigars with Kenny, (txdyna65) Skip, (opus) and Tom (icehog3) at the MMHIII in Florida. Even though I was able to remove 3 from that list, there are probably 50 more names I've added to that list that I consider friends and hope I get the chance to herf with them at some point as well.
The list of BOTLs I had the pleasure of herfing with also increased! I'm at the point now where I've herfed with so many people, I'm afraid to list them for fear of leaving someone out! You know who you all are and I've had great times with all of you.
My love of CS is just as strong as it was, just my priorities have changed. (for good reason) I've seen a lot of great BOTLs fall off the radar. Some have returned (SHOE) and there are so many new names/faces, its getting hard to keep up. Most members have all been positive additions to the jungle and I feel this place will only get better as it evolves.
Thanks for having me and taking the time to read this! Can't wait to see what this year will bring....with the family I've got here, I can only imagine it will get better.
