Is this like volunteering to keep the "book" at a little league game?

Anybody think to mention to Mac about the official initiation before he accepted? Well, first off at the annual CPYOA convention in Honalulu, Mac will have to buy the first round for the rest of us. Then we start the roasting...ah, the roasting. After that, well you'll just have to wait to find out.
Welcome, Mac! And thank you!

Of course not, B23, he would have never agreed to evil pact he signed.  I remember when you signed on, and you ran into the surf screaming NOOOOOOOOO!  Still cracks me up.

Smart move, Tim. I still have nightmares about it. I haven't been able to go to the beach since...considering moving to Kansas so I don't have to even see the ocean. Gives me the shakes just to think about it.

I appreciate the warm welcome!
I hope I made the right decision, LOL

And I just had my wife read the contract that I signed...... Little did I know what I got myself into....... I think she video taped the shock in my face.....

Mac:
   You'll find that when you read that contract in 6 months, words will have appeared that you didn't see the first time you read it. Of course you made the right decision. Have you gotten to the part about buying Bob23 a lifetimes supply of Guiness? Didn't think you saw that yet.

Macguyer, I apologize for making the font in the contracts 3pt chinese text.
It was the only way to squeeze it all into the 13,137 pages, which turned out to be the largest file size my computer will hold.

Off sailing now...nice day and a fresh breeze should be a blast.
