...but this one IS cracked.
Well deserved recognition for one of the most helpful people on this forum
I used to think superintendent. But then I decided it must be supercar....and I always thought he luved his "super"speed...but just a hunch.
That means more to me than you can possibly know my friend!Phil @luvmysuper is among the finest Gentlemen I've ever known. And there is no other B&B member more deserving than him to the coveted Merit Award title. Welcome my dear friend to Badger and Blade's most exclusive club!
Nice speech, Phil!Wow.
To say that I am surprised, humbled, and shocked is an extreme understatement.
I keep expecting a message to show up in my inbox saying there has been some kind of mistake.
I am surprised that I have been selected for this prestigious award when I know in my heart that I can do more.
I am humbled to be in the presence of the members who have preceded me, and to whom I could never even hope to equal.
I am shocked that anyone would consider my contributions in the league of the amazing gentlemen who have previously received this award.
I am truly blessed and honored to be welcomed into their group.
Those who have been previously selected into this small group represent the best that Badger and Blade has to offer. Each of the members who have been previously inducted have and in most cases still make such an impact here that picturing myself in their presence is almost farcical.
I love Badger and Blade, and I love the members here. I have such a deep affinity for the membership, who are by far and away the best group of folks one could ever hope to call friends.
When one has the luxury of being amongst such great people, it is easy to look good.
Being counted among the greats who have received this award makes me look at what I have done with a more critical eye.
I am deeply thankful for the award, and I am deeply thankful for the kind words here.
I promise that I will do my best to exemplify the characteristics of each of you who are members here and who, day in and day out, project the gentlemanly comportment that we have come to expect here.
You folks, the membership here, make it easy to want to be your best.
I promise that I will do my utmost to live up to the incredibly high standard that has been set by each and every one of those who have been selected for this award before me, though I know that I could never hope to achieve such a pinnacle of dedication and giving.
Truly - Thank You.
