WOW~~~ I was just playing with my profile page and realized as of yesterday, I have been a member of this board a year (even tho I had lurked for about 6 months prior before I got up the nerve to join). I must say, I'm truly glad that I crawled out of my shell and joined in! I have made some great cyber friends here and learned so much about others, the band, the internet and message boards. I joined when times weren't going so great in my life and it seemed that everything was coming apart at the seams with so many lossses and things spiraling out of control in my life! Getting on the board was my little piece of therapy at times. Talking to others about one of my biggest passions was a "feel good" experience when other things weren't going so well. Meeting some of you at concerts last year made joining even more worthwhile! And the friendships I have forged, in person or just by corresponding with some of you thru PMs or Facebook will always be appreciated.

Thanks to all of you that have made this such a pleasant and huge part of my everyday routine!

No Doubt!!! I've not been on nearly that long - but I love popping on - people here crack me up! And we all need to laugh!

It may be a cliché, but time certainly flies by when you're having fun!

Congrats Willie, it was lovely to read your little account about when you joined. I think we can all relate to that on some level. On a personal note, I always look forward to reading your posts. You have such a vibrant, warm presence here, and more than once I've found myself laughing out loud at something you've said. I'm pretty sure this guy's glad you're here, too...

Yes, Willie, I'm glad you found us, too! This is a very special place in the mad, mad internet world! :soda:

Congrats Willie!

Wow, it's been a year already! Amazing!

I'm so glad you found us as you add a great deal to the board. I'm also very glad I've gotten to share some Eagles experiences with you and developed a friendship beyond them!

Willie, Troub said it best - I look forward to your posts too! It was a pleasure to meet you last year at the Chicago show. My one year anniversary is coming up in a couple of months and I know how you feel.

I know this is one of your faves, so here ya go!

Congrats from me too Willie!!! I feel the same as the others here. Reading your posts always bring a smile to my face, make me laugh, or give me some new info that i never knew before. I always enjoy reading your replies and eyeing the wonderful pics that you post. Congrats again and may there be many more to celebrate.

I believe Ticky has just added another word to our Eaglese dictionary: Borderversary. I love it!!:thumbsup:

Wow guys--Thanks for all the compliments and pictures! You all lie really well. :hilarious: Seriously--I started this thread, once I realized it had been a year, to thank all of you for making it a very fun and exciting part of my life (does that sound lame?).

I especially love all the pics you all posted (and PM--you are so right--that is one of my all time favorite-it's right up there with this one)

BTW---Borderversary just cracks me up!!! Only you could come up with that Ticky. Now we will all be celebrating those. Get that one in our glossary!

Ive always been a dreamer

Congrats, Willie on your 1-year Borderversary. Here's to many more ... :cheers:

MF and I and others have used the phrase 'Glenniversary' to indicate how many years we have been in love with Glenn :heart:

05-23-2009, 07:42 PM
I'll use Doniversary :)

05-24-2009, 12:42 AM
A very belated but also a very Happy Borderversary to you, Willie! :cheers: Here's to many more years of Bordertime!

And a little eye candy for ya' ;)

I must agree with everything everyone's said so far! Willie you're absolutely awesome and I'm so glad that even though I didn't get to actually MEET you, I got to share the Chicago experience with you. :) You're an amazing person and have brought something very special to this board and we're THRILLED to have you! Congrats!!

Hey Willie,
Better late than never....Happy Borderversary! When I joined on, I noticed right away how friendly your postings were, and I always appreciated that! Especially in the beginning, you made me feel more than welcome...and even now, you're always quick to note something new to comment and compliment on--thanks! BTW, I have noticed (as I'm sure everyone else has) some very HSG photos of Timmy in this thread---some I have never seen before, such as the beautiful on that Lou has posted. Very nice!
