It looks like Mr. Gilman has reached another milestone. But I understand several posts are under review by management for deletion......so he may have to just keep on adding his excellent posts here so he doesn't have to come out of retirement (this is a bad reference to a really bad movie).

:bs:Warning -- Metaphor Alert!::bs:
Undoubtedly, Gary will continue to distill his whisk(e)y wisdom to us with his astute palette of palate sensations, and his anecdotal and anodynal cocktail of historical witticisms and observations.
Thus, whether today or tomorrow, he will Gillmanize a new milestone.:toast:

Wow, you guys are in fine form tonight.

Here's to 5000 more. I learn a lot from what Gary posts and appreciate his participation on this forum.

Don't worry, Gary. The first 5,000 are the hardest. :)

Congrats Gary!

Who da thunk Tim was so eloquent? He makes the rest of us Tennesseeans look like rednecks. :)

That was actually a Gillman post, he should get the credit for it if you ask me!

I can't take credit for that one, that was an example of Tim's fine wordplay and dexterity with English!

Thanks to all for their kind words about my contributions to SB. I received as well many private notes in similar vein.

I am still very much with SB and e.g., intend to be active more on the chat function and by PM. But it will be much less so on the board and the only reason, as I mentioned some time earlier, is I've said so much here, I can't really think of much new to say on bourbon and related subjects. I will enjoy though continuing to read the board and learning more from the people here, as I did from day one.

Thanks again to Jim for the chance to post all those thoughts on bourbon here, it's been great.

I will pop in now and again, probably next after Sampler upcoming to post a "Gazebo" note.

My best to all.

Gary

Does one receive a present for milestones such as these? I did not even know till now that such information was so noted.

Congratulations!

Kindest,

Geb

Sorry Geb, but Chuck cleaned out the present box when he hit 5,000. ;)

Cheers!
