<b>Greetings</b>, <i>honourable</i> Earthlings, It is I from a land far, far (ok, not so far) away, sunny and tropical New Jersey. I live in the northern part in the midst of the concrete jungle. I'm usually not so weird but in a bizarre mood.<br><br>
Who's Abira? She was my four-legged furbaby that I lost not long ago (devastating loss). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"> Single guy, 38, no non-furbabies, Jewish, professional dude who travels a ton for business. Not here to par-tee <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":vebo:"> but here to chat about veggie stuff since I don't know any veggies (other than farm sanctuary peeps and others I meets).<br><br><br><br>

Welcome to VB! Nice to meet you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I'm very sorry about your loss.<br><br><br><br>
Just a tip: If you'd like to have that quote automatically be shown at the bottom of your posts (I noticed it when you posted somewhere else on the board), click on User CP at the top of the page, and Edit Signature. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You're welcome. I can understand what you are going through, as I have lost several furbabies of my own when I was a young child. It's something that you never forget, and they always have a special place in your heart. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hug:">

Welcome, welcome. Nice to have someone on board who remembers the 70's...<br><br><br><br>
So, where 'bouts do you travel? Stop by Seattle sometime and those of us veggies who reside in this, the most beautiful part of the country, can show you a good time (by that I mean dinner and veggie friendly food and such - duh!).<br><br><br><br>
Sorry for the loss of your fur baby, that can be rough. You've come to a good place. We're a fun bunch (and not all of us are here to party either, some of us just like good conversation and the occasional argument about what brand of soy milk is best..)<br><br><br><br>
Cheers!

You're all such great people - thanks for the welcome. I intend to stick around for a while so I hope to get to know yous.<br><br>
Amy - I'm ALWAYS in California. My company's headquarters is in Mountain View. I'll be there again in 2 weeks.<br><br>
Seattle...hmm, well Tofu, I knew whatcha meant about a good time, even if you're just suggestin' veggie din-dins here in public. We all know you also meant bowling or billiards. You can't fool us.<br><br>
I have a guy who reports to me in the greater Seattle area and I keep promisin' I'll be up to visit. Maybe I'll show up under false pretenses <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> ...tanx Jenna and lover of aminuls, Groovy and Miss Right Now Karen. Ah VJ, I suspect so many of us have been through it. I'm 2 months in and miserable. There are so many reasons why. Thanks for sharing some of it though. Each time someone does, especially someone who "gets it," it eases the ache ever-so-slightly.<br><br>
I travel everywhere but nowhere. I've been to 35 states and 9 countries so I'll have to save specific destinations for another board, private email, or smoke signals, whichever you prefer.<br><br><br><br>
Ciao for right now,<br><br>
Steve
