The first time I ever posted on the Spiceislander Talkshop I was 38 years old.  Today I am 56.  That's a lot of change in a man's life.  Some of you on here who I have never met in person have been with me through a pretty change filled part of my life.

When I first posted, I had two children.  Now I have three aged 35, 27 and 14.
When I first posted, I had no grandchildren.  Now I have three.
When I first posted, I had little or no gray hair.  Now I have a lot.

I could go on but you get the point.  It is a brave new world where I have maintained a conversation for so long with people I would never have otherwise met.

Seems like yesterday that RD announced that he and his wife had a new baby boy. Next thing, RD was teaching the lad with a model farm set up on the living room floor. Not long ago the young son had won a state competition in robotics and was then to compete in a national competition in California, I think.
Man does time ever fly.
Sure seems like the lad was growing like a weed and doing very well.

Houston... I am touched that you recall those things.  That hits me right in the feels. smile

The boy just crossed six feet tall.  He will be 15 in April. Time flies.
