    Much to his chagrin, I am taking a moment to recognize the fact that Caslon is about to make his 3000th post on RJ.

    Many of his posts are humorous, funny and lighthearted,
    some are "informative, factoid based" (I always think, where did this come from?) LOL and some are very serious. Clearly someone we can all learn from with his life experience with cancer. For those of us who know David a little more, we know he more than deserves a "pat on the back".

    The point of this is... he puts forth energy and we have all been the recipient of his efforts to entertain us. Congratulate David and wish him many more posts.

    For those of you responding: Where did his name of "Caslon" come from????

    Wait until Caslon at 5,000!

    I think Caslon may be the first RJ member to have a fan club. I think they should be called "Caslon's Cubbies" with ShawnTO as the first president. (I go to NYC for four days and comes back with attitude, oy!).

    Thank you guys!!!!!

    RJ has really been a life line for me while I have been stuck in this house during my treatments.

    I would have gone nuttier than I did if I hadnt had you all to talk to ...and support me ...and encourage me. You guys have been great! An unintentional support group...roped in to tend a sick dude when you thought you were joining a sports site.

    Remember when I was in such depression that all I could do was write those poems. ...and you all complimented me on them. That felt good. The only pleasure I could get back then.

    And there is my Prostate cancer blog...still sitting there ...i refer people to it, now and again.

    I certainly have met a lot of great guys here. And made some very nice friendships.

    And even tho I have been stuck in this house, I have had my horizons expanded here. ...by guys from all over the world ...and by guys talking about stuff I dont know ...and then having to explain it to me! tee hee hee

    3000 postings! My lord! When will the insanity stop! tee hee hee

    Well, I am still stuck in the house ...so on to 4000! (that's not a threat...hahahahahahah)

    Thanks to you all again.

    Well, since I'm Co-President of RealJock with Caslon, I might as well be the President of his fan club (I can just imagine what the perks would be).

    Oh I have found one of my poems...it was from early in my depression when it was only intermittent before it took hold constantly...

    Hello Depression, I see that you are back.
    How the hell have you been?
    In those few days that you've been gone
    I've snuck in a smile and a grin

    What's this, I see? Are you down?
    Oh come now, don't be glum
    You are still doing your job
    my faithful, ever returning chum

    Have I been trying to avoid you?
    Oh perish the very thought!
    I wont never to bid you adieu
    You hurt me to the heart

    Those anti-depressants? ..amino acids?
    Oh those are just bon-bons
    I merely take them at the brain's insistence Not /YOU /to avoid or shun

    But should some day you go away
    And never to return
    I will hold you always in my affection
    right here next to heartburn
    ..................and kidney stones
    ..................and poison ivy

    ....hey I never said I was an Emily Dickinson

    See Cazz??? Told you people would notice your 3000th post. You've always been an anchor of RealJock, and I, for one, respect the hell outta you. These forums are the better for your presence...may we witness the next 3000 posts (and then some!).

    Seriously...when my work next takes me to DC...I'm buying your dinner and/or drinks!

    I agree Sedative... Caslon has often had provocative and thoughtful posts and he and I have exchanged some great email. We strongly agree on many subjects.
    BRAVO Caslon!

    Say what? Did I miss another election? It is bad enough I can't vote in the US election, but to miss the RJ one is the last straw.

    So who gets to be called "Mr. President" in a co-presidency? And I always saw you and Caslon in a Sultan and Grand Vizier type of arrangement (I loved the Ottoman empire in history, so exotic).
