Paul is at 4999 at this minute and is about to make the step over the 5000 mark. Not bad for an old guy! Keep 'em coming, Paul!

      Actually, Mr. Mayor, you were a bit premature but this post will make 5,000. It has developed over the years. I have always tried to post with something to say and I believe I have accomplished that.

      This past week I was traveling in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. I did not work all day and I had several opportunities to lurk. I could have easily had my 5000th post some time ago but I chose to select the time and place and Mr. Mayor gave it to me.

      I sincerely have enjoyed this site over the years. I have enjoyed my role as moderator although at times it got a little testy, and I have stayed loyal to the site.

      I have enjoyed our roadfood meetings and exchanging emails with many of you which are too numerous to recall, count or discuss. Al, you have been super to work with.

      Al, thank you for posting your premature congrats and you gave me a reason to make a post that I felt worth while.

      Sincerely,

      Paul E. Smith
      Knoxville, TN

                Hey Paul, who is Al calling an "old man"??
                Keep up the posting......you are indeed a gentleman, well traveled and you have taught all of us a lot. You are a great asset to this site!

                  Wow! 5,000. Count 'em, 5,000!
                  I feel like I imagine how the just-average ballplayers must have felt when the Yankees came to town and the Babe walked out onto the field. Indeed, in the presence of greatness.

                  Here's wishing you and yours lots of luck, health and happiness. Although I'm only in my rookie season here, I've come to admire your posts for their good-natured and even-keeled dignity.

                  Hopefully, one day you''ll come East and go on one of the Jersey contingent's hot dog expeditions. Congrats.

                      Because Paul is an administrator, we still don't know what comes after "Filet Mignon" ... we gotta count on Michael Hoffman to blaze that trail.

                        Hello All,
                        Sundancer, it is good to say that there is a person we can admire and respect their words.
                        You are such a person. I am thankful for you. And I do not use those words lightly.
                        Keep growing and sowing.
                        Take Care,
                        Fieldthistle

                            Paul, great job, and from a fine man to boot. I may get to 5000 in about 10 years. I'm proud to have met and broke bread (and BBQ) with you.

                                Paul, you're an asset to the Forum and I enjoy your posts. Maybe one day I'll have the pleasure of meeting you. Until then, I will continue to enjoy your thoughts and roadfood information. Cheers to you and here's to another 5,000.

                                    At just eight posts away, I'm wondering what the moniker is going to be for 5000. Anyone have an inside bit they'd like to share before MH hits the big 5000 and we all find out for certain?

                                    maybe something from a past thread, like: "Filet Mignon with Blue Cheese Sauce"

                                      I think we should let Hoffman pick. If so, then I want "Quail" in the pool.

                                        I would like a bit of credit for Sunny-D's enormous amount of posts. I believe I am responsible for several that said......
                                        "Cool it, Copper." "Zip it, Copper." "Chill out, Copper"


                                        I have a suggestion for Michael's moniker, put it cannot be posted here.

                                        Keep'em coming, SD, Congrats.

                                              Why do people bring back these old threads. This happened back in March. Sundancer now has almost 6000 posts.

                                                  I brought it back, because the comment was made about what moniker does one becomes when one hits 5000. MH was getting close. It was to continue THAT conversation. Not that you have any control over what threads are kept alive.
