Howdy from Boonville!

First off, I would like to thank little Tommy for his generous undertaking of this project, and to all the good folks on this form who have contributed both monetarily and in good spirit to this project. I have had the great fortune of meeting many of the members of this forum in person, I can truly say they're the best folks you could ever hope to meet.

A quick update on me: healthwise is been a bit of an interesting year for me. In January I had surgery to repair three hernias. Figuring I had it made in the shade, I was looking forward to a late spring and summer time of riding around and having a good time. I did get to take a few rides around Boonville and the local area. But then a few strange complications popped up post surgery. As many of you are probably aware it's difficult in these times of covid-19 to get the kind of medical care we were previously used to… Fortunately with a bit of persistence I have managed to get in with a good group of healthcare professionals and were getting this worked out. I'm happy to report that after Tuesday's procedure, they were able to determine that the troubles are minor. That's great news! Looks like with a little repair so to speak I'll be back in the saddle again!

This is hard for me to put into words, but I'll do my best. I feel incredibly blessed to be a member of this group, this TW forum, this community of people who are bonded by this curious 200cc Yamaha motorcycle… When I discovered my 97 TW hiding under a blue tarp I had no idea how much joy and friendship came along with this bike. Yamaha fails to mention any of this in the owners manual!

All kidding aside, I know I'm a very lucky guy and I count my blessings every day. My sincere thanks to everyone on this forum for being a BIG part of that.

With a big Boonville "Bahl Dee!", Mike

I just don't think there is any better way to say that!. Glad you are on the mend, Mike!

I missed out on the Booneville ride, but I pass near that way on my way to Albion for kayak fishing tournaments. Can't wait, well guess I'll have to, for another opportunity. Heal and get well soon.

Mike in Boonville sent me a picture of the basket we sent him, it looks real nice and I think he is mightily blessed. He is going to try to post up a picture later.

Enjoy brother!! We all love you here at the forum!! πŸ‘

O yeah, I forgot to mention his beautiful wife Karen offered to make her "Special" home-made Lasagna" if I ever get down that way. So, this is now on my "Git down there fast as you can Priority List" and she better make lots cuz I'm going to chow down like my mentor Fred would do. In other words, 2nd's littletommy?, Yes please! gobble gobble! Still hungry littletommy? O yea, gobble gobble!
You get the picture...haha :ROFLMAO: I learned from the Master (Fred) ;)

So I guess this will be my first official post on the forum, but I really would like to make good on my offer to help anyone else out there dealing with depression. Please feel free to PM me.
Micah, we haven't forgotten you... one more day broke won't kill you, so stand by and stay tuned...

Well my goodness... I'm a bit stunned at the moment Fred. Thank you so so much, you don't know how much this means to me, it really does!! I knew you would read it (hopefully), and I know I might have been a bit unfair doing it like I did, but you know as well as I do... that you have frustrated me to death several times in the past before pushing the limits and I know (haha) you've quite enjoyed getting my goat sometimes and taking it just to the limit but not quite far enough for me to have to do something. I really do hate having to take action on anybody, I love everybody here, I sincerely really do. I have a heart filled with more love for all of you than you can even imagine and I consider you a great contributor to the forum and I have nothing but admiration for you and your skills. I wish I could do what you can do, but those days are long gone for me, but I dream about it every time you post that I could again. Amen brother, I am so touched and please forgive me for doing that, but haha if you didn't respond, I was going to do it lovingly and teasingly one more time if you didn't respond... believe me, all of this will help someone in need somewhere and touch their life somehow and they will never forget that and no matter how small the gesture or help is, it can mean the world to someone just to know that someone cared or even thought about them. God Bless you my friend and I'd still like to visit you someday but please please don't take me on one of those so called "easy" rides!!!

love ya bro,
tommy

This is awesome! Big thank you's to everyone!
This really put a big smile on my face!

I'm going to let Mrs.MHoMadness help me open it.
Got to share the fun! m.
Mike, I'd pay a million bucks if I had too, to put a smile on your face if you needed it (if I had a million which will never happen) but no biggie, I'm so rich inside brother, I seriously can't hardly contain myself sometimes.

Not a bad looking basket, too bad I couldn't find one to match your bike though bro!! We here at the forum are the ones who are really blessed to have been able to send you a little something. Just enjoy it my dear friend. We love ya man!!! (y)

I just wanted to put up a little thank you to our fellow forum member and moderator partner Purple. I've learned a few new things about this gentleman in the last couple days. This gentleman really cares about the welfare of all here on the forum and will really go the distance if needed. He's a real stand up guy and is a huge help to me here. He's stepped up and volunteered and covered my back a few times now when I so desperately needed to step back and get away from it all for a bit. He's multi multi talented and a man with huge potential. You guys would be so impressed if you only knew this man a little better. He really cares about all of you. Purple I salute you, you really really impress me and it takes quite a man to do that and doesn't happen often, believe me. I tip my hat to you Sir.
