Dear Dr. Bill,

I'm back from my wee celebrations over the weekend (minus a few million braincells give-or-take) just to wish you all the best on the way to you 20,000th! And (if this thread is anything to go by) you might just make it in half the time it took to reach this one!

All the best,

Rubrick

Bill, I add my congratulations and best wishes to all those which have got themselves on the board in good time. I have to say that I have an excuse for being so late -- I was away from Mar. 13 to Mar. 19 in Key West for my youngest son's wedding and when I got back found such an accumulation of unread posts that I have just now got around to looking, and found you had hit the mark.

My dear friend, your steadfastness in promoting the best of what this forum has to offer is what has endeared you to us, even though you are a cantankerous old coot.

Seriously though, you may modestly claim that this accomplishment is due to the fact that it's your only pastime; but if so, we are the lucky ones that you picked this particular site.

VIVAT DOCTOR GUGLIELMUS !!! VIVAT!!! VIVAT!!!

Bewdy Doc - fair dinkum mate, that's one helluvan effort you've made there.

Thank you for the fact that you often think of interesting snippets to send me and no doubt many others on our special subjects. I look forward to to viewing many of the next 10,000.

Congratulations on your AWAD milestone, Uncle Bill! It's nice to come back after a longish hiatus and see one of my favorite poster's name in lights. No one deserves it more than you do-- thanks for all that you bring to this board.

Bill. In some esoteric ways I think that your life began when you began to post on the Awad internet. Your honesty, your unpretentious thoughts, and your stories of an examined life well lived, have given me and many others pause to think about what lives we should ourselves live...(well maybe not) But anyway, thank you. You are a fellow that God has given to be a wonderful gift to others. Thank God and may God bless you, and I bet my bottom dollar he will. ...

Your friend and admirer,

Milo.

Just thought that I would drop in to say "Congratulations and Jubilations" - the board would not have been the same without you Dr Bill.

Heya, Bill,

Well done, sir!

Been really busy these days and I almost never peer into this particular cranny, but by pure chance I stumbled on this thread. Your posts are informative, funny, and delightful.

Moving (i have finally moved into my new digs)has keep me away from my computer (and my daughters), and each topic had so many new threads, and unread posts...I almost didn't stop here in I & A, but i too am pleased to offer you congratulations.

Your contributions have made this better place... and i still haven't had a chance to get 'below the fold' and find all the new words you have posted in the past 2 weeks! but i will. Thank you, you dear, dear man.

Well, I've been absent for quite some time from the board (and can't say as I'll be frequenting any more regularly in the near future either) but coming back it's obvious I've missed quite a bit. Dr Bill turning 10,000 for one thing.

Congratulations Bill!!!!

Thanks, Jackie & Rubrick et al who were busy watching the counter!
