I have been trying for a couple days to sit down and write something snappy about LSP and what it means to me without any luck.All the stuff that has been going on here has made it even harder. This will be hard , so bear with me, please.
I have never been involved with anything remotely similar to this place and all involved. I was raised a Navy brat and as a lot of you know, this can be fairly awkward to a kid growing up. I did get use to moving and establishing friends, if only for a shot time. Then I was in the service and well you know what that was like especially during Viet Nam. Fast forward to a few years ago. Joined a couple forums after starting back into modeling and found a new world. But there wasn't the group I was looking for. Stumbled upon a new site called LSP. Hey, this is different. No drama, lots of help. Anyway after some time, got to know people and start friendships and it kept growing. Latter on I found that I could actually contribute a little back, more friends, better bonds. Met new people all the time. Learned who's buttons I could push and found I could make people laugh. I was hooked. Had fun building and learned lots of basic and complicated things. Found that the people I new who had heartaches and problems actually affected me. Some of my friends passed away, close friends. talked a few friends out of doing things that were detrimental to their health and well being. Made more friends. I found my place in this thing called LSP. I was accepted without thought or question. People like Maru, LSP Paul, Ernie,Martin Jack, Jerry ,Derek ,Larry, just dozens more. Souls like Dale, who told me just the other dale, that I may not know all the good I've done to others here, has been a big influence in the way I look at people. When I've been ill, the dozens of you that messaged me and Bev. have shown what love is. What real friendship is, what a Family is. The times I have given a kit or something else, I've done so with no thought of myself. The times I've been given stuff, it blows me away. I think the highlight this year is Joe giving me his prize from Maru for the flight in England ! Are you shitting me ? I give without thinking so why am I so surprised when the shoe is on the other foot ? I don't know. All I know is I am loved and appreciated here in my home and I try to give it back every day. The funny stuff here is just hilarious . Especially this stuff about the "like" button. I love it ! I learned long ago that people wouldn't bug you if they didn't like you, so it is flattering to me.I can't go a day, no, I can't go an hour without looking in. 16,000 post, thats a tribute to what I think about this place and how much I need it. Likes, well again my way of saying HI, or showing my appreciating you all. My stamp of approval I guess.
OK i've dragged this on long enough. I'll close with "I LIKE all of you, new and old" .........Harv :wub:

I'll just comment that I "liked" your post, Harv. Nothing more fitting, I think ;)

May you keep gracing this forum for another 100 000 posts and a few billions likes :)

Harv

My Friend

Right back at you and I feel the same about you, all my friends on LSP and well what can I say about the Forum ... it brought us all together, a home, friendships and help when needed.

Your a big part in making our forum our home.

I thank you for what you have brought, your contributions and your humor.

Of course, none of us can be responsible when you wear out the I Like It Tab.

Your friend

Peter

Thanks, Harv. You are truly one of a kind. And exactly the same in person. I remember when Paul and I went to nab you from the airport, and we were jacking around with stupid comments like"will he be helped off the plane in a wheelchair", or "he might give off primordial dust when the wind blows", etc. But you're a true friend: you gave back more than we could and shut us both down. I know several of us have made it a mission to make sure you actually get o Old Blighty and get on that Dragon Rapide... And we will.

I agree with your group of names.

I'll add a few off the top of my head: Nicolas, Hubert, Dean, Tim, Peter, Ray, Mark, Tony, Don, Carl, and plenty more: great folks who'd give the shirt off their back if needed.

Harv,

I really have to second your comments, especially the one about checking in so often. I find myself checking here first thing in the morning, and many times each day. Not Facebook, or Twitter, or anywhere else....just here.

When you come over for the flight, let me know, I'll be there.

 

You are more than welcome to stay with us - although we're in Wales, not England.

 

Think South Dakota, but with sheep. And it's own language.
