firstfz appreciation day

Here in the background a few things are changing and it's time to for all of us to show our appreciation for Tom Caldwell, firstfz. He has kept the lights on here for many years and only because of his love for this forum.

Thank you Tom.

This is the first place I go each and everyday at lunch time during the week and my downtime each evening.

On the weekends, as soon as the coffee has brewed and the felines are attended to, again this is my first visit.

Thanks again,

Fvck yah. Tom is most definitely the unsung hero of the OA for the last MANY MANY years.

Nicely done Ed. This thread is over due.

Everyday is firstfz appreciated day. A group of guys started a movement..it turned into a family. It also serves as therapy, moto information and life coaching for some.
Tom keeps it going. I love you man !!
