If you can think of something to talk about that is not related to knives, discuss it here.

5 Years already?

Post by Steve Warden » Wed May 27, 2020 1:21 pm

May 27, 2015 I registered here at AAPK.
I really didn't post much the first couple of years.
Then jerryd (I think it was Jerry) made a comment about people getting more involved with comments and conversations. That is, after all, what keeps an on-line forum going. I thought, ya know, for a Marine, he's pretty sharp. So I jumped in and started getting more involved.
As a result, I've made quite a few good friends, not only here in the US, but around the world!
And I've learned a lot, too. And not just about knives. The knowledge base here is amazing!!
Thanks to all who keep this place alive and kicking by posting!

And Jerry, a special thanks to you for the push to post more ::marine_salute::
Take care and God bless,

Most days you're just cruising' along and never think about whether you are making any difference on the forum or in the world. Then up pops a guy like Steve who says, "I read and heard your message and it's true". That's a pretty good feeling. Thanks for the pat on the back Steve (it's not at all what I'm here for) and thanks for hanging on to help make AAPK what it is. For a Zoomie, you're not so bad yourself. :mrgreen: ::handshake::
