Right on! I’ve only been on LJs for a few months, but from what I’ve seen, you deserve all of that and more. I hope that you enjoy that piece of holly half as much as I enjoy knowing that somebody was nice enough to send it to you.
If you guys and gals aren’t careful, you’re going to restore my faith in humanity.

-- Cheers and God Bless

Obviously, somebody was a good boy last year. Unfortunately, you’ve set some pretty high standards for yourself for next year.

That’s some really nice stuff (I’m partial to the holly). It’s good to have friends.

Sweet! Nobody deserves it more. (That Sheffield box cutter looks exactly like the Bessey model I use daily at the sign shop).

May 2010 be your best year ever.

David, this is a wonderful post that really shows the true spirit that is behind LJs. I could not think of a more deserving person. You all are winners in my book.
