My apologies

I let something get under my skin and I didnít handle it well.
I understand that what happened was years ago but some things are tough to let go. That was a really tough time for me made much more difficult by people I trusted.
My apologies to the group for letting my feelings get the better of me.

There are some really good people here from what Iíve seen. Iíd like to see this site do well again. Even though Iím not here much anymore I still recommend it to people. Iíve even touted Greg as being one of the best mechanics here even if we donít agree on things.

So yes, I might have been childish. But thatís not who I am as a general rule...
Weíre all childish at some point

And Iím certainly not toxic

If I can make at least one person smile, or pee their pants a little, or maybe spit out their drink; then my day is not wasted.

Hi Wildkat,
please remind this geriatric fart what it was that got under your skin because I don't remember if I missed the ruction while absent or if I plain ol' forgot about it.
And for your amusement; a signature quote from another site:-
"Sometimes it ain't worth chewing through the straps to get out of bed in the morning."

Garrett - it was almost a popcorn moment lol

Fred! So good to ďseeĒ you
Saw you were selling the pumpkin and ready to fly on a smaller gourd
Glad to see youíre still riding
If you want to catch up with the saga, start at the bottom of page 4 in the updates thread. Thatís where I came in...
Page 5 is a mixture of friendly exchange and childish remarks (mine too)
Page 6 is a bunch of guys telling me that thereís no room for childish antics here
Which is REALLY ironic. That kinda made me giggle.

Ian - thank you.

Yeah, I know. One of those fire from the eyes moments, when you hear it all...lol
Even if you donít want to hear it, it does some good to hear the unfortunate truth......but you have to know youíre about to see the other side of the coin. ...anymore I just smile and walk away, it pisses them off even more and I donít waste the energy. There are only a few people that can bring me to that level of eruption. Not to say I donít have all the thoughts..at least it was real.
