    9/11...This probably needs it's own thread but I'll leave it here for now.Funny, today is a carbon copy of 9/11 16 yrs ago...a clear crisp cool Sept. day. I heard at work a plane had hit the World Trade Center and thought maybe a Cessna clipped it by mistake.I left work at 10 to get a haircut & while there learned this was much more than an accident!!! When the second plane hit I knew we were in trouble...BIG TIME! It's amazing how your sense of life changes in a second! First thoughts were getting my family together but that took some time....That's a day I hope I never have to re-live.....

    I was back in Hawaii and had the news on for the market open (3:30a HST). My wife and I were scheduled fly out that evening from HNL for BOS/Logan. I'll never forget.

    I was on my way to work on Ft. Lewis. Our work got Very serious that day.
    One gentleman scheduled to take over our B company died at his desk in the pentagon. His office mate, who I knew personally, was on leave or he would have been sitting next to the first.
    I wish our government would take the issues which predates and have remained seriously.

    I was getting ready for work watching TV and my wife was pregnant at the time. When the second plane hit lower Manhattan I knew the world would never be the same.

    I still to this day grimace when I think about those poor souls who had to make a terrifying choice of either getting burned alive (remember the planes were full of fuel, having just taken off) or jumping from near the top of one of the towers.

    Just a reminder that this thread is about everything and nothing and anything in between, that's why it's my favorite! If Grant302 didn't start it I'm sure Jerry Seinfeld would have , if he was a member.Feel free to post whatever is on your mind ( within reason of course...this is a family show!).........You only go around once...have fun....;)

    I can't find the "1000 post club " thread if there is one, but one of our members is starting to creep up close to it! No names right now but he may try to sneak in unannounced......I'll try to make sure that doesn't happen...TymeSlayer you with me on this?

    Here it is. I added 1,000 to the title and moved it to the Paddock forum.
