    When I look back at 2006, these things come to mind:

    - An injured hand

    - A new boat

    - A roadtrip to Cali to pick up the V3500

    - The neverending Tweakernator thread

    - Kim becoming the sole owner of her business

    Thanks to everyone here who chose to include me in their lives. No matter how small a part you may have played, I can't help but feel lucky to be surrounded by good folks like you. I consider it an honor to be a member of the Brotherhood.........:bow: :bow:

    What made 2006 a special year for you, good or bad?
