Just noticed that last month marked my 10th year hanging around here.

When I first showed up my son who set up housekeeping with his GF almost two years ago and bought his first house a year ago in July was still in middle school. I had just started my job here, and in fact was still technically a contractor. My shop was barely more than a closet and half the furniture in my house was just a twinkle in my eye...

Where does the time go??

And...I'm surprised y'all have continued to put up with me for this long!! :mrgreen:

Dang...where did the time go? I apparently just passed 12. So that means my high school freshman daughter was still a toddler who probably wasn't really talking...now she talks about driving and college. I realized a couple weeks ago that this fall was my 25th anniversary on the Internet since I first got online when I went off to college.

When I first scanned the title I read 'Now I'm feeling odd'. All sorts of thoughts crossed my mind :)

I'm about at 12 years too. Man this goes fast. My kids were only 11 and 12 when I first joined.

You guys are old!

I however have not aged a minute in the 12 years 7 months since we started THIS board (and before that the Yahoo Groups for awhile).

4 homes, 2 states, a few employment changes, and my youngest now a whopping 15 YO tells me I might be a bit off.
Darn, I'm old now too. Would it be wrong to admit I still a few unfinished projects from back then to finish still?

I'm coming up on nine years membership but can't resist sharing this. I retired from the army 15 years ago and one of my young soldiers form 20 years ago just retired. Didn't feel old until I saw that face book post.
