Dear Hillbilly Dave...

Here I thought this was a new "old" thread that had flown under my raidar, then I was so happy to see this was a NEW Hillbillyism, and a celabration, too! WOOHOOOO!!!

There is something about you, your style, that goes deeper than the gift of a good writer which you sure are. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your thoughts and words of wisdom, and now I am proud to be able to celebrate a milestone with you!

Congratulations on 3 years, and thank you for giving us a view through your eyes of where we can be, what we can become. You've sure helped me to think of how I want to view this journey, and how best to walk it.

Enjoy the party, you deserve it!

While this is near the top, I will take the opportunity to thank each of you for your kind words.

While I wasn't here from the beginning, when I joined Freedom it was still in if not infancy, then at least adolescence. I have watched this forum grow into an entity into itself that should make its founders swell with pride. It has become a living organism that has helped thousands of quitters.

I am proud to be a small part of this group and I look forward to many more experiences over the coming years. I congratulate all of you for your accomplishments and I challenge you to keep up the good work.

Thanks again.

Oh my I almost missed the triple GOLDEN party! Like others on this thread, I was fooled that this was an old classic Hillbilly thread (you are ALL over this board Dave!) and not this spankin new triple GOLD celebration! And I am not one to miss a party! Image

I am so pleased and proud that I have had the opportunity to share all of my journey with you Dave. You have a distinct writing style that soothes and comforts us quitters behind you and, for that, you are truly a treasure to this forum. For those who haven't seen you around much lately, I am linking a couple of my absolute favorite navel gazin' posts:
Congratulations on your three years of FREEDOM, your 29 years of marriage, and your 53 years of life!
