So unless I failed to read deep enough{lol}, Thanks for allowing me a chance to watch and learn from you, and who knows, maybe I'll be able to toss-in a helpful tidbit here and there........Cheers.......Kenny

    Hi Ken, nice to meet you! So glad you recovered from your lurk-itis! You're right, this is a super knowledgeable and friendly group. I'm just a beginner WW-er myself, but there are some very experienced and helpful folks in our Family.

    Everyone loves photos here, so post lots when you can. Often you'll hear "no pic, never happened! "

    If you feel like it there's a BOX SWAP coming up (that's the whole thread) and here's the quick and dirty, and I can guarantee a) a lot of laughs and b) no one's box will be worse than mine.

    Greetings from the Wet Coast of Vancouver Island!

    Welcome to the Family Ken!

    Oh great. Another Michigander. Ah well, that's OK, we're already used to typing slow for the other ones anyway.

    Welcome aboard, Kenny. We've got some great members here from Michigan...glad to add another one to the list. If you're anything like Tom and Larry, you'll fit right in.
