And you will always remain, a retired Member of the Month!


I didn't get a poem at the end of my reign. :lol: :lol: Maybe I didn't run the race well or bring joy to all or remember to stand tall....

Time For The Member Of The Month of November To Pass The Baton

Image


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our revels now are ended. These our forum posters,
As I foretold you, were all sprites and spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision -
The turkey-capp'd heads, the gorgeous Peanut Kids music,
The solemn reports from Boris in Russia,
And even the ‘DATo - Member Of The Month Thread’ itself,
Yea, and all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial, Green Fairy dream faded,
Leaving not a turkey wing behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little commentaries
Are rounded with a sleep.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In profound gratitude for your participation my November Member of the Month thread I offer the following video (if you haven’t already seen it) as a parting thank you gift.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwAYpLVyeFU

May it prove instructive and useful to you, and may it always remind you to be kind to others for our sympathies walk hand in hand with our rewards, returned to us at unforeseen times, and in unexpected form. Be good to each other. Karma is watching. [;- )

My deepest thanks to you all, it has been fun!

In order of appearance ....

@DATo
You have set the bar very high for the next recipient of the scepter :lol:

I'm sure William will forgive that bit of plagiarism, he might even appreciate the new improved version :wink:
