Real friends keep you in line. Real friends know what decision you should make, when your thinking may be flawed. Real friends think of your future, not the next 10 minutes. Real friends WON'T sell you out for money or sex (with your Wife or Girlfriend). Real friends will watch out for you, when you cannot. Real friends cannot be bought, for ALL the money in the world. I have learned an awful lesson over and over in life. Friendship has it's limits, where someone will screw you in a heartbeat, to profit off of it. If I may, I would like to commend one of our Thumpertalk members...Mike68. The Dude is true throughout. I cannot commend him enough for being a decent person, one that I can proudly say is a really great person. He really is. He will tell you flat out what he thinks, with no sugar coating. If you are AFU, he'll tell you so. The Dude is really something else. As I, he served in the military. I, in the Navy, and he in the AirForce. I have never had the caliber of friends I had in the Navy. These guys were closer than brothers. Hell, I was on a submarine w/ these guys. And no, it wasn't 150 guys go down, and 75 couples come back!!! Out here in Civ-Lant (what we called the civilian world), people will turn on you to profit in any way possible. This really does blow. What happened to decency, to loyalty, to integrity, to being a good person? Yeah, I have had too much to drink. I am drinking two Sam Adams simutaneously, right now. I am trying my best to shut out reality as best as I can. I use to be so carefree, a really good kid. Basically a bubblegum, goody-two-shoes kid. Now I am paranoid and suspicious of friendly people. Not any of you guys, but of my "friends" here in NH. Sorry guys for showing a part of me I normally bury. Why does life have to be so difficult? Give me a MX track [bud's Creek], some limitless good friends, 70F with low humidity, and a case of Sam Adams to drink around the campfire while re-telling the days stories...And I'd be in Heaven! (plus make my WR 225#, with killer bottom end torque I don't have to re-jet for 3 years to achieve).
