    Default Congratulations Gonzo and Weruj!

    CONGRATULATIONS on your 6000th post as Captain Gonzo, Ron!

    Plus however many you had under Lieutenant Gonzo name, of course!

    and .......

    CONGRATULATIONS for sneaking past NJ to take over the position as top poster, Joshie!

    Unless that honor is actually Ron's when you combine the two usernames. LOL

    and on that note ....

    Every once in awhile I'll ask this but never hear anything ..... does anyone know where the heck Ed is, and if he's ok?

    I could get all gushy here and talk about wisdom, respect, sharing rough times, happy times, in sickness and in health (LOL), and fun times, but I don't think I need to spell it out, especially since I've met Ron and for sure will meet Joshie sooner or later. So instead I'll just say keep up the good work, gentlemen

    I respect firefighters and emergency workers worldwide. Thank you for what you do.

    Gentlemen......congratulations on the milestone and I am definatly looking forward to seeing you guys break 10,000. I know Weruj personally and he is a great guy, and have not met Gonzo before, but he seems like a great FF, and a great person. Definatly someone that I would like to meet.

    So again, congratulations gentlemen...and keep up the good work.

    WAY TO GO, FELLAHS!

    I have learned that both these honourable gentlemen will share their wisdom, humour and encouragement. Who can ask for more in role models?

    You can't! Weruj has been probably the best role model possible to me and for that I am grateful.
