    I now know what it is like to be at a loss for words.

    I've been trying to come up with a post that suitably expresses how grateful I am to everyone who helped me this past week - especially Kelmo - and everything I come up with leaves me feeling as if I should say more.

    So, I'll have to be content with saying "Thank you, Siege, from the bottom of my heart". I know the population is smaller than it was - but the community here is as strong, decent and caring as it ever was. Maybe even more so.

    I am VERY grateful to everyone who has helped me out after certain Evil Anarchists decided that my house had to fall even though I'd paid the account. Not to mention what happened after that!
    The outpouring of support from the good people of Siege - both in terms of friendship and items has been amazing. EA's support... no comment.

    So, thank you all - but especially Kelmo. You sir, are one in a million!
    I'm afraid that I'll miss someone out if I start listing everyone who helped me - but I really do appreciate everything you've all done to help me.

    Siege has always been about the community. Add-ons and villains may come and go, but the heart of this land just keeps getting stronger. Yes, I'm a sentimental old fool, and the PKs can start their mocking whenever they like. It won't change a thing. :violin:

    One last thing... I'm not really sure how the rumour started that I'm dying - I probably typed something too quickly and someone misunderstood - but I'm not. Repeat. NOT. DYING. My health has been really, really bad until recently - so bad that the only work I've been able to do is unpaid voluntary stuff, and sitting at the computer for any length of time has been a serious strain - but my health is gradually improving.

    So, the only place I plan on dying anytime soon is on Siege, and even then, hopefully somewhere near a wandering healer!


    Thanks again, friends. I've missed you. :grouphug:

    *sheepishly raises hand*

    Um that issue may have resulted in my own post in another thread where
    I was ticked off, saying maybe he isn't even alive, Otto even could be ill or dead or dying since we hadn't heard from him in long time, and ya takin his stuff ? All time LOW etc. I posted.

    I was yellin at someone for pilferin ye stuffs knowing ya had been ill long ago, and I went off.

    Soooooooooo any rumor that ye were dyin or possibly met ye rl demise, coulda been my fault in me haste and anger in said post.

    I sowry.
    I was mad at a particular some one, that never thinks about others, beyond his own self, too many a time.

    Anyhow welcome back...now get to dusting off that KSS guild stone. :)

    *hands Otto a dust rag*
    Oh wait ... I forgot ye are a blindman, Blind Otto. Oh well just dust off anything in ye path at Wintermoory home there, sooner or later ye will also hit it, and KSS guild stone will become, dusted off.

    IF ya find ya need anything, lemme know. :)

    *smiles* We are all dieing, my old friend. Some faster than others. It is inevitable.

    Yet, while we have this small window of life. if I bring you any comfort... it will reflect well on me. If not in any afterlife, at least here.

    Many came forward. I deserve no special mention. In fact... Giving in may have been detrimental.

    Be that as it may... I am more than happy you have skills.

    My stuff is what it is. Keeping you viable is priceless. I have no regrets.
