    Unfortunately, there comes a time when one must say their goodbyes to this forum. Yes, despite the fun, fellowship and camaraderie, other priorities take their toll and thus an active member must, unfortunately, bid their farewells.

    Of course, I'm not doing that- I'm too addicted to this place and will be here (Lord willing) for a good long time. But I wonder if those who do leave this SS fellowship ever realize what they've left? Do they know that they've turn their back on what is perhaps the most tight-knit, open-hearted, loving and caring assemblages of persons from across the planet that could possibly be gathered together? And what amazes me the most is that this is done without a, 'religious leader'. Yes, there are many folks here who are faithful to their faiths (I'm a Christian personally) and the list of faiths here is diverse, but we have no head... only a collective heart- which I believe is a blessing given from Above as a common grace to build this fellowship.

    So no, I'm not leaving. And if you have any sense at all, neither are you.

    You moved to Omaha yet WildBill? I'm just up the road in Fargo ND. Come visit! June is nice. Miserable up here right now.

    Anyway everyone deserves at some point in their lives to find a place to be where people are open, warm, welcoming, give great feedback on thoughts and ideas.

    I know I've not been around the last month, between the holidays and being sick with a cold that just will not go away. Shrug.

    Anyway, I've missed you guys. This is paradise guys, who would leave?

    Man, you had me going for a second WildBill! Shouldn't do that to a guy at this time of the morning!
    I couldn't imagine ever want in to part ways with such a great group of people. In fact, I don't remember what I used to do before I joined!

    Scared me too, can't imagine why anyone would willingly leave the forum. Even if I somehow lost interest in slingshots (not likely) it's not like that's the only thing on the forum

    I was already thinking about who might be the one leaving..
    There is no way I could paraphrase your thoughts, Bill. You hit that nail square on the head!

    In my humble opinion this forum is immortal.
