5,000 posts

A friend recommended this site to me when I bought my Ferrari in 2002. I've been a member of this site for 8 years now and I've had a lot of enjoyment out of it and made a lot of good friends. I celebrated my marriage on this site and I also celebrated my divorce on this site. I became a ship Captain while I was a member of this site and you guys were there to give me a hearty, "Well Done!" There are things in my life that are way better now than they were before and I've also had some setbacks. We all do. We're all just out there trying to do the best we can. FerrariLife has always been a place for me where I can enjoy some lighthearted discussion or just vent when I want to with people who won't get all bent out of shape if I say something wrong.

I'm celebrating my 5,000th post with a whiskey right now. Gentlemen, I raise my glass to you.

A big hearty congrats, Pete. I am all for your stance and outlook toward things. Wish you more happiness to come. You are one of the reasons that make this FL what it is, Pete. w/ smiles Jimmy

Pete, always enjoy your contributions. 5,000 posts of adding value to the site - well done, hope the whisky/key was nice! Had a nice 18 YO Glenlivet yesterday here in the Ivory Coast (thanks Coen!), myself.

Congratulations Pete! Although I haven't been here for all 5,000 posts, I've enjoyed the thousands that I've read. Here's to the next 5,000!

He actually had a special deal with Andrew.

He really has only 2,500 posts, but Andrew doubled the count each post to make Pete look good!!!

Should we report this to the police? This could be serious!

Cheers

David, very little of what I do is serious. And before you worry about involving the police, Don't worry, the ex-wife has taken care of that. The police are already involved. This is a woman that wants me out of her life but she just won't go away. She had me removed from my own house that I pay for, got a court order for me to give her money because she couldn't afford to live there and then she had a garage sale selling off my stuff out of my own garage! Now I have to go to court because I was a week late with her support payment back in December of last year. She actually got her money 2 days before she filed the claim but she didn't cash the check until Jan 6th. I asked her to drop it but she won't. She wants to drag me into court.

I'm making sure that if my next wife decides she doesn't want to be with me anymore then she gets deported and leaves with a suitcase instead of an 18-wheeler.

Congrats Pete, I've enjoyed responding to your posts and threads over the years, not to mention our little meeting in Singapore last year. Any idea how many of your posts are in the Driver's Lounge? I'd guess at about 4995

Archie, That's probably right. You know, I really don't care about Ferrari's that much anymore. I think you and I have the same attitude about having been there and done that. Time to do something different now. I think I am going to sell my 308 and use the cash to buy the best snowmobile money can buy and run it through Canada with my little Chinese girlfriend.

We'll probably need that snowmobile on our trip to Ulan Bator
