Was just looking at Junior’s thinking about mail ordering a cheesecake, two years already SMH.

My friend - good thoughts, better memories.

Miss ya buddy-
I cannot empathize with a slackard, a shirker, and a coward. I would probably kick your ass as well, if one of the other members didn't beat me to it.

I would have never thought it possible to miss someone I never met.

Well said. This is where I am with it.

That's it, that's what I wanted to say.

I got a lot of good advice from Andy over the years. I wish he was still around to bounce things off of.
"The real problem was being able to stick it out, to sit in an office under the orders of a wee man in a dark gray suit and look out of the window and recall the bush country, the waving palms, the smell of sweat and cordite, the grunts of the men hauling jeeps over the river crossings, the copper-tasting fears just before the attack, and the wild, cruel joy of being alive afterward. To remember, and then go back to the ledgers and the commuter train, that was impossible. He knew he would eat his heart out if it ever came to that."

SOTB you may be gone, but you are very much still here- amongst those who will never forget, who knew of you and how you lived, and chose to continue on..

This thread, this place- to me anyway- has reached hallowed status.
Not only because of you, but the twenty-three other Souls here with you- all of you are now no longer unacquainted nor separate from the other, but are together in a gathering of brothers only you and your kin will ever know. It is beyond my understanding, but not quite beyond my ability to appreciate such bonds.

I am humbled and offer my respectful remembrance.
No matter.

I had occasion to spend an evening drinking beer with Tom Bullins this week and got some old time SOTB stories.
