    Well it took almost 10 years. A lot of things have happened in that time.

    I have moved from collecting amps to collecting and assembling guitars. It seems as though it was a natural progression, but I may have to switch back to amps in order to keep up. Still looking for the ultimate 2X12...

    I have slowed down a lot, there have been a few changes in my personal life that might have dictated that. Also, I retired a couple years ago which I thought would allow me to relax a bit more. Not the case... Home improvement is the big thing now in order to get ouur house ready to sell in a couple years. Headed to the left coast.

    Things have changed a lot here at MF, and without getting into too many details that would get me banned again (yes, again) suffice it to say that many of them have not been for the better. Many very good friends have left, disappeared, and for whatever reason, don't post anymore. The Techs that used to reside here have mostly left of their own will, and that is the main reason I was attracted here. Not for the Marshall mojo, but for the expertise of the few that helped me when I joined. I learned a lot...

    A lot has changed for the good, many new members have replaced those who have left, we shall see how they shape up over time. Many have suggested to me that I should not dwell in the past but look forward to the opportunities of the future. Sometimes that is very difficult, but that should not prevent anyone from trying. You will never know if you don't try.

    After 20K posts one might think I have figured it all out. I haven't. It may take another 10 years, but I think I will stick it out until I can't post anymore. I know I have certainly slowed down in posting, after I have come to realize that if I don't have to post, I just don't. Kinda like choosing to walk around the dog poop instead of stepping in it.

    A wise man once suggested that men shouldn't be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of his character. Hopefully when the time comes, I will be judged not by the quantity of my posts, but by their quality...

    Congrats on 20k and thanks for all your contributions, Mickey! MF is still the best place to hang out, and I feel the same about sticking it out.

    FYI - I'm sure the T-Shirt comes after 10 years of service and I'm positive the postman nabbed mine before I got to see it, dammit!

    Congrats, Micky. Yeah, I can appreciate what you say about the changes over time, as some have been for the better, and some not so much. Also agree that while I miss some of the old crowd, I do enjoy the new guys around here as well (will be interesting to see if any of them make it to 20K!). Not sure what to really say other than lately it occurs to me, what a long strange trip it's been ...

    I'm a relative newcomer, but I like things here as they are for the most part. All forums have their good guys and not-so-good guys, and favorite old-timers drop out over time. This one seems to have a good mix of assets--mostly good people, interesting content and a nice membership size which keeps things moving at a nice pace.

    Hope to see you continue with us for a while longer, Micky.

    For 20K you should get your own sub-forum. Right? :)

    Micky, you have always helped me out and you have a lot more knowledge than you give yourself credit for. You are a major part of this forum to me since I came here.
    I have been on the verge a couple of times. Lots of people move on there are several forums that have splintered due to lack of what ever . Kind of miss Blues n clues and diasect.

    From a very recent arrival, congratulations on such an epic milestone Mickey.
    The inevitability of witnessing so many changes with time can be saddening - I've found it so in other arenas, in far, far less time than you have invested in these forums.
    I feel sure that your presence and advice has welcomed & helped many. It really is a foolish man who cares not for the experience & expertise of others - at 62yrs of age, I've welcomed it time and again, and will do so until I drop off the twig......importantly, I've found it in abundance within these forums, in what has been just a short time.
    Enough of my ramblings...Congratulations on the 20k, Mickey!!!
    Here's to the next chapter.
