Thanks for Being You

I noticed today that I have hit 1000 "thanks" from fellow forum members.

To me, this is a bit of a big deal because it means that through all that the past months have brought, somehow, some way, I gave some information to someone that they found useful, I gave a smile to someone that they were in need of.

So, for giving me the information and smiles that I have needed, I want to say thank you - for all the many thanks.



Quote:
Thanks for giving me joys and smiles
Thanks for sharing my trouble's pile

Thanks for wipeing the tears of my eye
Thanks for showing me the glad view of sky

Thanks for lending me your shoulders to lean
Thanks for giving my words a proper mean

Thanks for telling me the value of life
Thanks for showing me the rules to survive

Thanks for lending me the sympathetic ears
Thanks for showing how much you care

From all this what I mean in the end
Is thanks for being my special friend.

Totally agree. In my short time on the EF, you have been quite helpful and your two cents are very much appreciated...

Re: Thanks for Being You

Well done. 1008 EDIT: 1010 thanks in 1311 posts is quite some ratio!

Re: Thanks for Being You

Sooooooooooooo disappointed
I was actually racing against you to get to number 1000 but you beat me.
Difference is I was not collecting "thanks" but the other one

Congrats........

Re: Thanks for Being You

You are a positive presence here.

Hey, I know a way you get another 1300 odd thanks - just bake a load of those cream cheese brownies, send them to me, and I will go back and thank every one of your posts while I eat them with a glass or two of cold milk.....

Of course, then I'll need to go on a ride with Salsa to burn through my abundant glycogen stores.

Funny enough, that's what (I feel like) my hair looks like today.

You been spying on me?

If you leave your webcam on it can hardly be called "spying". Leering, perhaps...
