    Default A positive thread about some of the coolest people on earth...

    I thought about posting this in the Texas Linkers' thread and then decided that everyone needs to hear this story. It's about some of the Linkers here, and it's so special that I wanted more than just the regular viewers of the TLW thread to see it. I'm not even looking for comments...just wanted to share a positive thought with everyone.

    I know this may get closed or moved (and I understand), but I figured if we could have threads about what to do with 3,000 jugs of pudding and all the drama that has ensued lately then I'd take my chance posting a positive thread for a change.

    As many know, Texas Linkers' Weekend was held here in Houston this past weekend. As has become our annual tradition, it officially begins Friday evening at a restaurant/bar. What Eddie and I did not know is that the group had a couple of surprises up their sleeves. They threw us a baby shower! Remember, some of these people we've only been around 3 times in our LIFE, yet we are much more like an extended family. We were showered with diapers, clothing, "My Mom Rocks" bibs, baby Franky-striped Chuck Taylors, Buckeye gear...I could go on and on. The most precious gift, however, was from the entire group and I've posted the picture (and our reaction) here. What a cool and thoughtful gift and introduction to our child of all these wonderful people that he'll stories about throughout his life. These are some of the greatest people one could ever meet, and Eddie and I are so honored and blessed to call them all friends.

    To my TLW family (SEA, TP and SNIC, Filthy and Di, Sisca, Lode and Tabby, LLFHS, Mikey Metalhead, HH and TST, fastdodge, sixstring, and Pert)...we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We are truly blessed that you are a part of our lives. Thank you for helping to take care of me (reminding me to eat, check my blood sugar, making me rest, rubbing my feet and shoulders, and making the pizza I've been craving since December ). You made us feel very special and we love each one of you!

    Pics are there.

    KT - I know exactly what you mean when you say you've only met some of these friends 3 times in your life yet you feel a bond unlike any others. My freshman year of college I made some of the best friends of my life that I've now had for over 20 years. The fucked up part is that to a person (a mix of guys and girls) we all felt a connection and bond within the first few weeks of knowing each other that we'd never had before. More so than kids we'd grown up with since kindergarten. It was wild stuff.

    The amazing friendships you've formed with each other comes through the threads loud and clear and it's a very cool thing to watch because I can relate to it. Glad to see it was another success this year.

    Well it is me you know......that's the first problem.

    Thanks for the kudos in this thread by the way. However, the thing you don't understand is how incredible we all think you and Ed are. I mean why would we make several trips in the past year to hang with all of you? Why would I take HH THERE for his birthday weekend? Why would HH take me THERE to propose? Why would Di and I stress about getting the blanket on time and hate the whole time that we could not share it with you?

    Maybe because you and Eddie are some extra special friends who we met around this time last year (hard to believe isn't it) and now you are people we can't live without. You both took us in and accepted us and our lives have been enriched because of it. KT you all are the kind of people you are lucky enough to meet once in a lifetime and if we are lucky enough we will be friends for many, many years to come.

    I really could go on and on about you but people might get sick of my raving.

    Know this, you are both deserving of so much because you give so much to other people. You've heard the term "You reap what you sow" Well, this is what you sow my dear. You have people who would move heaven and earth for you. Bet that feels pretty darn good now doesn't it?

    TST<------------now go check your blood sugar and put your feet up--------- ----did you have your snacks today?----------

    Well there are some in the TLW thread that are showing up and they are certainly on her myspace. I am going to check HH's computer later and see if they show up on that. I was feeling like the Lone Ranger here.....

    KT, give us mods a little credit please, Why on earth would we close this thread.
    Personally I think we NEED more positive threads like this.


    I think it is very cool that they threw you guys a shower, great pics. Nice group of people who attend the TLWBQ. Its shows that they truly care about you guys.

    You guys are going to be great parents.
    ((Just My Two Cents))
    And thats about what its worth.

    YES...I gave it to him the minute I heard your message. Things were a little crazy here around the house when you called but we both appreciated it very much!

    Oh, I knew you'd probably OK it, OLO (you luff me...heehee). No, honestly, it could've gone in the TLW thread and so I figured it might be moved. Thanks for keeping it here b/c I, too, thought this forum could use a positive vibe.

    Yes, they are a terrific group of people and several mentioned really wanting you here too!!! You were missed and we even took a Whataburger ketchup pic for you. RE: ketchup...by the time I collected a box full, they'd all gone bad and turned to vinegar. Then there was the issue of them exploding during an air-shipment and it'd look like a really nasty homicide! LOL You're just gonna have to come here for the ketchup!
