    Ok Bob, This is war!

    Bob,

    I was going to thank-you too for all your efforts put in this site and magazine, but that changed when Evie said she LOVES YOU?

    That is power abuse to the highest degree, and I for one will not stand for this!!!

    I will round up all the males in this group that secretly coveth Neal's wife and march to your office brandishing picket signs scrolled in rustic kitchen grade pine, protesting such an affront to us poor buggers that don't stand a chance.

    It's not because you come up with brilliant ideas like a wooden quilt, that brings together the international, no less, members of this group and will benefit a good cause to boot that we will let such gallivants be ignored.

    We all know that you have a career that is under way, and because of your talent and dedication it can only go upward and forward. Ergo: you only can break the poor dear's heart.

    You need to let her down gently, and tell her you are married as, alas, she is. I guess the only decent thing to do is be her friend, as you are ours.

    In that spirit only can I declare truce and admit that I highly respect the work you are doing for us, and hope that your boss sees this when evaluation time comes around , otherwise I hope it's your wife that sees it (Man! I'm mean. He he)

    But seriously, Congrats on a job well done.
    Respectfully,
    Marcel

    PS. Evie, all the above just means: "me too"
    Your friend,
    Marcel

      Well I too am a member of the Bob fan club.

      You show great insight in the work you do on and off the forum. I don't know of a truer friend I have found online. Thanks for keeping my internet world sane enough to keep me level yet outlandish enough to enjoy.

      You are a great ambassador for Fox Chapel, showing leadership and compassion here on the forum. Kudos my friend

        Aw, shucks...I've gotta be me <grin>

        Bad grammer (and misspellings) aside, you are all like a family to me! I start to get anxious if I don't see posting from you (or even see you online)...and always breath a sigh of relief when I see a posting!

        I've learned SO much from all of you--information that helps my writing and editing--that makes my job easier and more enjoyable.

        Not many people can say that they love their job today, and even fewer people my age are planning to retire from the place they are working right now--but I love my job and do plan to retire from Fox Chapel! Your friendships are, and always will be, one of the best perks!!

        So I guess, I should be the one thanking all of you! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

          Me too! Me Too!
          I gotta tell you, Bob, that whenever I think of Fox Chapel, it is your face that I put on it. To me, you are FC. So, don't hurt your cutting/carving arm patting yourself on the back, but do know that there are a lot of us out here that love you (I guess maybe not the guys, but that's OK too)
          And please, don't think of retiring too soon. We need 'ya!

            I will have to agree with all the rest, Bob, you do amazing things.

            I will be at the open house and hope to meet you there.

              I agree with the rest. You have made some very appropriate changes since you became administrator of this site which makes it a more enjoyable place for all concerned.
              Don't worry about the retirement thing. You will be busier then than you have ever been and will hopefully still be here looking after things.
              Many think retirement is where we slow down and things get a little Ho..Hum..
              But those of us that are retired know that it becomes a very busy time in our lives and we wonder how we ever had time to hold down our pre-retirement obligations.
              Keep up the good work.

                If we're not online for a few days, Bob it's probably because we're all trying to keep up cutting the new patterns from the latest fantastic magazine from SSW. Fitting everything in becomes a difficult task at times. Like they as 'if you want a job done give it to a busy person' as I think this also applies to many enthusisatic hobbyists. And yes, I too, appreciate all the time you put in to get this forum running. Thanks heaps.
                Cheers. Teresa .

                  Yeah, I like ya too Bob, and you already know that I think you and Shannon have turned this magazine around since coming aboard. I dont need to say too much, your head already is swelling up pretty good! Does your wife know how much in love with you evie is? I bet shes be jealous!!!

                    Jeez Bob, how high is your pedestal? I know that keeping this bunch on the straight and narrow is a full-time job (actually half-time since you also police the carving crew) and I gotta agree that you are good at it. You have caused us to have high expectations and now you have to maintain the image.

                        I'm relatively new here, but I definitely share everyone else's sentiments. Except maybe Evie's. I can't say I love you, but you definitely are a great asset to the magazine and this board.

                            Seein Evie's post reminded me of a written note I love:

                              Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                              • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                              Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
