I want to take the opportunity to thank each and every Member, Admin, Moderator, Support guy, Developer and the Head Frog for making my time spent here worthwhile in many, many ways. Some of you have been here forever, others have come and gone. Each one of you make up the family atmosphere here and I hope WC always remains the "user friendly" site that it is. Over five million members says something must be being done right.

 When I stumbled in here, I didn't know squat about skinning....and not much more about modern computers....I still don't but I can fake it pretty good.  What I do know is that a finer bunch of people doesn't exist on the planet. It's a pleasure being a contributing member here and an honor to consider many of you my friends. With it's odd blend of camaraderie, controversy, community, compassion and comedy*,  and some really great art and talent being shared with us all, WC is a unique place. (Some may say "odd")

Thanks again for tolerating me and here's to the next five. 

And a special secret handshake to my good friend RedneckDude for putting up with me the most.

* OK, so it's a slightly dysfunctional family.

Five years?    Five years!!     Damn, it seems like 15. 

How in the world did you get so much more karma than me in 5 years?   

 

 

Five years puts you at 2007/8.  I just got here in 2009, according to my profile. How did you .... nevermind. 

 

Glad you hung around, Wiz. 5 years and one wallpaper later all you really have in the way of art is the ability to draw attention...lol.

 

You've been a great tester, if a bit testy at times. 

 

You've been a great friend to me, and to a lot of WCites. Hope you make it for 5 more.

With it's odd blend

Strangely..... accurate inspiring words, from the Wizard of Odd: Here's to another 5 years (at least).

What's an anniversary without a card?

 

Only 5 years... amazing. You're a great Community resource, Wiz... and I'm happy to be counted among your friends.

What can I say......when you grow up with hippies these things happen. Tie-dyed t-shirts, bell bottoms that sweep the sidewalks as you ditty-bop down the road, protesting in Times Square as the girls burn their bras and guys burn draft cards while hauling ass for Canada to avoid Uncle Sam's "We Want You" turning into Gotcha! Conscientious Objectors (not me. It turned into a lottery and both times my name was way too high on the list). Not going to get into that because some might object to my views and I do respect that.

Rambling button off.

@ RND. I got my karma the old fashioned way, I paid for it.  And btw, some of the attention I draw isn't very good either.

@ Doc, thanks for the card, you showed my good side in it.

@ Philly. Thanks John. I wouldn't be the same without WC and its members.

@ Jafo. some days it's a lot like that. 

@ Uvah. I'll pass on the beer ( I quit drinking in 1991) but pizza is my favorite round meal.

@ DaveBax. Thanks, I intend to give it my best shot.

@ willistuder. Thanks, I suppose one won't hurt, as long as the wife drinks it.

@ doortech1. Thanks and I hope you are too.

@ DPCloud. Thanks.......you must have seen some of my woodworking.  

@ Zubaz. Thanks Aaron, I'm happy to be here and know that my efforts are appreciated.

@ frankell. Thank you, and keep on rockin' our docks off!

Wiz no offence but I just thought it was a cute comic and that you might get a kick out if it, I really don’t want to know anything about you having wood.

DP, he's too old for that kind of wood. His middle name is ED.

Be afraid Wiz, your wood may end up in DP's next texture upload.

Thanks for hanging around for the last five. You are always willing to help and that is sooooooooooo great!

Just looked at my profile and I will have 10 years this September and you beat me on the drinking by a couple of years as I quit in 2001!
