Hi Y'all,

I know many of you might have thought I got royally pissed at this site, and promptly fell off the earth.  Nothing could be farther from the truth.   :)

Every year at this time, I am overwhelmed with thoughts of all the people I have come to know here, gathering together to celebrate their comonality, and their struggle with this very shitty disease.  This year, I am healthier than I have been in many many years, and am so very busy here at home, I am really in a peaceful place.

I certainly am consious now of the many plans being made by all of you, and the inevitable excitement that accompanies such a gathering.  My heart and mind go with you, and wish you all the best experiences as you explore and discover Boston.  It is a very beautiful city, and the people there are so very welcoming, I know you all will have a smashing time. 

My blessings for all of you, and please hug each other for me, and remember, there are those of us who will never forget you, no matter where on the planet we happen to be.

Love, Tim.

It's just that they need more supervision.

Hi Moffie

What a wonderful way to start my morning.  Thank you for your kind and thoughtful words.

I'm especially glad to read that your health is doing so well.

You'll be on my mind, because of all the fond memories of previous AMGs that will surely come up.

Take care buddy.

I still have fond memories of my van trip with you to and from Quebec City at the Montreal AMG.  I am glad to hear you are doing well and hopeful our paths may cross again.

Hey Tim!

I was just thinking this morning about you and our trip to Vegas!

I also remember Quebec City.

Thanks for the wonderful wishes and I, too, am very happy to hear your health is good and that you are in a good place too.

Hi Moffie

Glad to hear you doin well out there in the mid west still ? In the town that refused to give up ? Was what I think or something like that I had thought you had written one time a while back on AIDSMEDS.COM . I think it was the town that refused to die ? but not knowing the meaning of the word or wanting to use that term I changed it to give up I hope you do not mind > dramatic license to change things to make them better and more entertaining and all.

all my best
