Smile Toronto Reptile Show pics coming soon!

Sorry if you thought these were the pics...but ive yet to work on them! Infact, i still have not presented the last shows pics, or the totally pets show pics either. Im sorry for my lack of speed as i know alot of you really like these threads and i promise, all pics will be up within the next two weeks. With that, i will also be uploading from my collection of show pics one older show that is not in the gallery...and ill get that fixed as soon as i can as well.

This show was a blast, and i have just uploaded the pics and went through them all one at a time. Unlike the other shows where i usually take in the 500-600 range of pics, this one only has 195. Infact, the pics are unusual in that there is only a handfull that were taken in the show, the rest are of the members afterwards in the bar. If i could describe these photos in one simple would have to be X-Rated. Unfortunately i cannot show some that i took in my drunken stuper...although im sure alot of you out there would love to see them. First and foremost i want to uphold the family values of the site, secondly i would need permission from those involved as i am not about to give them out. For those of you who have never made it downstairs to the bar after a show it is a definate must! Its here that you gain a real look into the lives of the ppl that you talk to everyday. On my way home in the wee hours of the morning, dreading my day at work with a hangover, i thought about alot of things that this show opened my eyes to.

As i sat, surrounded with about 40 members at one time during the evening, i started to think about how this all came to be. As we approach our second year anniversary i was humbled by all that Jeff has achieved with this site. I mean, if you think about it...what is really? Its an information site that ppl gather in to discuss like minded hobbies. But it really dawned on me last night that it really is so much more. The sence of community that is shared amongst our members gives my shivers. All these ppl, talking, laughing, hanging out. It was like a super extension of my family. It blows my mind that a simple group of code off of Jeffs fingers, and out of his head created a family like ours. Last night i watched friendships blossom. I watched a couple of ppl fall in love. I witnessed connections made, and paths of life that would not normally cross. How amazing has this thing really become! I guess in the last while ive taken it all for granted. Well last night has opened my eyes and i feel that i have to do something about it. As our anniversary is in March, i think we need as a community a real night out to party. So, in the next few months to come, im going to work closely with jeff to arrange just an event. Im sure he sees $$$ before his eyes now...don't worry dude, i gotcha covered

So now that im about done rambling i would like to simply say thanks. Hey, its all of you that has made this what it is. Its a truely amazing thing that we have here. Next time you come on the site, think about who you have met, and realize that this is truely a community that goes further then just the person behind the keyboard. Thanks for a great time everyone last night. Thanks for the many beers that were drank, laughter that didnt end, and for letting me be a small piece of it all. As for Jeff...your vision lives man, well done know im proud

Okay...mushy #$%^ i know...maybe im still drunk!!!
Thanks for reading!

Well said Shane,

Next time I'm going solo. the kids can fend for themselves. lol

I am curious as to how the site did all start..was it over a few beers or what, inquiring minds need to know

See you soon

Wow Shane... that was a very heart-warming speach!! I have never felt love from any forum but this one, and I'm glad I'm a member of it. If it weren't for you guys I don't know where I'd be right now, or how I would feel. Thanks for everything!
Btw, I'll see if I can come to the little anniversary thing if you plan one up!

Now get those pics!!
Who are you callin' a freak?!
