~Great post!!! ~OMG, again?!? I see you, already. *sigh*.... I'm laughing and crying at the same time, that's not good. ~Oh no, my dear sweet grumpy pirate! I *love* your grumpy posts -- every single word! I really appreciate you sharing your very recent experience at AK, and I was not offended in the least. I don't want you to leave or ever change. I would be miserable if Rumors became overrun with a bunch of happy go lucky pixie dusters! I've got the pixie dust on lock or so I'm told, lol, but I'll be that! This is Rumors, and you are one of the few old timers nice enough to stick around. I have learned so much from reading your posts, and you bring a such unique perspective along with some of the most charismatic, eloquent writing that I have *ever* seen. I can't wait for your return!!!
