So, after being here a year...... have a few things

Hey folks, well, i has been litte over a year since i joined the site.

Found the site by searching on google, and am ever so happy to find the site.

Have learned ALOT from this site, that i prolly would have NEVER known. i guess thats why my first ranger stayed stock, except for my chrome tip!! Have learned about myselfs quite a bit also during this year. Have met some amazing people. Expecially the jacksonville crew, that was there for me, when my gmaw passed away. i said it once, and ill say it again, you guys will always have a special place in my heart. To all the members here, new and old, YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!

Its truly amazing, what a vehicle, can do, to bring friends together. and how one love, for the ford ranger, can build such strong friendships.

i would like to thank christian and skot, for keeping this site, going, even throu the thick and the thin.

So, i just had to get that out. YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!
Has been a great year, and many more to come with RF!!!!

Few Shoutouts:

Christian - Great site man, you have worked hard. I hope to see it continue to grow and improve. Your really a great guy and i for one, and glad to have met ya!

FireRanger - Wow, what to say, We were at each others throat durring some issues in the past. but now that we are past it, i think the friendship has strengthened. Your an awesome guy, but my truck is brighter than yours now :-P

Holy cow! It's like one of those speeches at the "Oscar's", lol!

Thank you, and it's funny to see that you guys can enjoy Colin and I "going at it". I like Colin very much, and he's one of the smartest guys around; but we seem to annoy each over with certain views and particularly with our choice of language since it doesn't seem to take much to "trigger us". Probably most of that can be laid at my feet...oh well.

There are so many good people on here, and even some of the people I argue with or give a hard time to about some things, I very much respect in others. I really can't think of ANYONE on here I just "don't like" in general -- it always revolves around something specific. I don't think people who are generally unlikeable hang around here very long...

Again, Thomas, thanks. You are a good-hearted fellow and I am also glad YOU'RE here. Besides whatever you do, you also contribute just by being who you are!

being in love (w/ his g/f of course) has made thomas in a good mood. he is thankful for all his blessings (including r/f and his friends on here)

lol sorry

Yes, falling back in love, and being blessed with her, has opened my eyes back up.

I reupped my salvation. I have become much closer to The Lord, my family and friends. My walk is so much better. Each day, is a blessing to have all that i have. I forget the feeling for a long time..... i have given up many of the things i do, (cursing, ect ect). My faith is much stronger, and what can i say, i love life now! I have been blessed with a loving family, friends, and a beautiful loving girlfriend!

wow - very nice Thomas
I guess this means we will not be seeing you this weekend
that is too bad because after you meet people face to face (even if only for a short time) your relationship becomes much stronger
the internet can be very impersonal and it is often hard to truely understand a person

I knew what mammioo meant about being in love - it does change your whole perspective on life

stay true Thomas and thanks for the props.... Name:  bdsmiley.gif
