Brothers and Sisters,

I have it on good authority that sometime in the next two weeks, I'll become a father. Shocked Don't worry, it's not a surprise, but it's really really close now.

Between this good news, and the additional work I've taken on to bankroll this exciting project, my time is limited and some amount of it belongs to sleep.

So, until further notice, I have dropped to the bottom of the BoB moderator depth chart.

I won't be doing any proactive moderating--no moving misfiled topics, no stepping in, no fielding questions on or off-board. The only thing I will do is vote on rare things that require majorities of the mod board behind the scenes.

If you PM me about admin stuff, I'll politely refer you to the remaining mods, when I get around to it.

I will still be around as a user. I will still--with the advice and consent of the rest of the Mod team--keep my admin status. I will definitely keep puffing my pipes.

Hell, you probably won't notice I'm missing. But if you do, that's why I'm not around. Cool

Your pal,
Doc

Albert Carter if it's a boy, Virginia Cavendish if it's a girl...

Probably a good thing that the mother is actually the one who has to fill out the name form. Cool

At 0300 "Bugler" may come to mind. I hope not. Congratulations and enjoy the new arrival. You can't imagine how quickly those years slip through your fingers, so take that time and enjoy it. Oh, by the way. If you were handing out cigars, what would they be?

I don't know from good cigars, but something with a proper Connecticut-grown wrapper. The kiddo was grown in CT, so the cigar should be too.

That's great news! Congratulations!
Although, you may need to stop by occasionally to watch over your grown children here on the BoB.
And does this mean PB is in charge?
Lord help us...

Congrats Doc. Don't be a stranger to us, I'm sure you'll realize that the time of relaxation with pipe in hand will now be even more valuable and appreciated. Wishing you and yours the best.
Andy

Very Happy

Hey friends, just a quick bump to say that child, mother, and father are all doing well.

I want also to remind you (or inform you if you didn't see this earlier) that I am on leave as Moderator. I am on now and then, and I yet have Mod powers but do not have time to use them with the thought and discussion they often require.

Please contact another Moderator in the rare instance you have a problem requiring intervention. Blackhorse has joined our ranks as a special Trading Post Mod, and is doing a heckuva good job in that department.
