Default Absolutely the BEST Mailday of My Life!!!!

I had a client bring me a mason jar of homemade moonshine. For whatever reason, I can't upload that file (maybe the Feds are on to me), but just know that it looks and smells delicious.

Then...

You may have seen my Club Nintendo thread. Well, I cashed in some of the points I had (I'm a hoarder of those points), and got this:



For you young-schoolers out there, this shirt may not mean a thing, but for us old-school gamers, this thing is LEGIT!

As if I wasn't excited enough, moonshine, check, Mario shirt, check, I open an envelope addressed to my wife and me, and here is the gist of what's inside:



Yes, that is right, the last year and a half has lead up to the moment that is written on that page!!! I am BEYOND thrilled, you have NO idea. It has been quite the fight, but so glad to be THIS MUCH closer to our goal!

At this point, the only way things could get better is if my wife were pregnant...



















she is We find out the sex of James' little brother or sister on the 12th of April!!!!! We've known this news for a month or so, but I wasn't quite ready to share it.

Way too much good news for one night. I think I might go drink myself silly. Don't worry, James is with his grandparents

Default Congratulations!

Take it from an old guy who did a lot of things years ago and then had 2 kids, stop drinking. You'll have 2 soon and they need you more than you need a drink.

A casual beer or wine is at least better than moonshine and hard liquor. You want to be alert to all possibilities with children around.

Sorry for preaching, really am happy for you.

Dang, you make me sound like an alcoholic

I am a casual drinker, meaning, never to get drunk, and typically when we are out at dinner, if even then. This was my first go at Moonshine, and only because I was curious, not because I needed a "fix."

I do appreciate you looking out for me, and also for the kind words.

Matt, I cannot tell you how happy I am for you. That is soooo awesome, and if you are half as good of a parent as you are a member of this forum I can only imagine how great of a life you will be able to give to James! That is so terrific, I'm thrilled for you guys!!!

And, to top it off you guys are expecting? Wow, I'd be beyond myself. This couldn't be happening to a better dude.

Congrats, congrats, congrats!!!!! I sincerely wish you and the rest of the family only the best of luck throughout the entire lifelong journey you're about to embark on.

And yeah, that T is awesome. Someday I'll get around to trying real moonshine...have you tried it before this? Lemme know how it burns so good...

Mailday of a lifetime right there no doubt!!

Thanks so much for the kind words, brother. I appreciate the support and well wishes more than you know! The Moonshine actually smells and tastes like brown sugar. I should also mention that it made the roof of my mouth numb. That means it's good, right?
