I am not "The" anti-Christ.

John, I was just thinking about the mini-List get-together at Old Rhinebeck circa 1999... IIRC you were there, as well as Brad and the lovely Merville, and Cam Riley. Probably others as well?

Just spent a pleasurable hour going through digests from ‘98-99, highlights of which included Rob Johnson accusing E of being the Antichrist—it had something to do with the Methuen Handbook, I think—mentions of Jastafivegate, Diego stirring up various forms of trouble, and a long-forgotten (and still unfulfilled) obsession on my part over cockpit details of the o/t Gloster Gamecock. Good times.

Wow so many memories.  Apparently I was a late comer - the earliest posts I can find from me are from 1997.  It is hard to remember exactly when I joined the list. What I remember is the most interesting posts and the knowledge that was so freely shared on the lists. The galleries are just fantastic with all of the great models.

I traveled a lot for work in those days and this was how I got to meet many of the members of the list; Robert Karr, Rory Goodwin,  Merriville(?) and Brad Gossen,  Sharon and Michael Alvarado, Sharon Henderson and a few of you that I am forgetting - please forgive me.

And in what could be characterized as "When Worlds Collide" I got to hang out with Dave Zulis, Bob Pearson, Steve Perry, Ernie Thomas and Diego Fernetti at the 1998 OTF in Pensacola!  How about that for a weekend! I mostly lurk now, but every now and again fortune takes me to LA and I stay up late with Cia and Robert Karr. It is really great to see that so many of you are still here and posting.

Best Regards
John Cyg
