Hey, thanks, CG, I didn't think it'd be out until Friday.

The irony of the photo is that it was taken six feet off the beach in about 18" of water. See those waves out there in the background? I never touched them. But at least they spelled my name correctly and got the facts pretty straight.

Looks like we have another stealth ER Forum member in the Fortune 5 article. But I won't reveal their identity unless they elect to do so.

That's what I kind of figured. Either that, or the photographer was pretty gutsy I don't think you'd get me past 5 ft. of water - saw Jaws once too many times

Nice article Nords!

I've still got a way to go, but growing my hair out again is also near the top of the list.

Nords - it doesn't matter where the photo was taken, the smile is priceless. The epitome of the ER sh** eating grin.
