SOMETHING NICE, FOR A CHANGE

Good morning Blog!

I have no idea if this will get to Dave or Judi because Im not a Moatie anymore (it's been years due to life and stuff) so maybe I could still find them through that, but I don't have any idea where the Moat might be at this point. But!

I want to say a very heartfelt thank you to Dave and Judi and this blog and the Moat. Many years ago I fell into the Moat quite by accident and stayed a good while. And met a fellow Moatie called Joshie. I have never actually met in person this Joshie from the Moat, but last week Josh gave my husband a kidney. His left kidney in fact. And he gave him an awesome kidney and Eric should have a long and healthy life now because of Josh. All because I met Josh on the Moat. While playing with Moaties. On the Dave Barry blog. so.. if this can get passed along by any chance to Judi or Dave.. Thank you! You guys are the reason my husband gets to live to a ripe old age. Bet they never thought they could be directly responsible for saving a life. And yet, here we are :-)

Someday when they both heal, we will be meeting Joshie live and in person. After 20+ years, I will meet a Moatie live and thank him too. Because I still haven't met the man. But the blog attracts some really awesome people.

Thank you for existing! You've given me an awesome thing because you do!

Wolfie

Clarification for you newbies: "MOAT" means Mother Of All Threads. From judi: "It was a long thread that got started on the blog but then eventually they transferred to something else and they continued having lots of gatherings and they made a calendar and all kinds of stuff."
