40k hard earned, amigo. Well done and happy to have you here.

Does this party need steaks, I think it does.

Coloma's avatar

filmfann's avatar

Congo rats, Cruiser! I appreciate your conviction and honesty.

chyna's avatar

@cruiser Although our politics don’t often agree, you always stick by your convictions in a polite and gentlemanly way. You share a lot of your self and wisdom here, and your love for your family and home life shines through. I’m glad to be able to call you my Fluther friend.

40k! Congratulations Cruiser! I’m having a cup of Joe this morning in your honor! :)

40,000! That’s astounding. Congratulations, and thanks for keeping us awake!

Congrats @Cruiser on this wonderful achievement!!

Mazel tov @Cruiser! Great job!

BellaB's avatar

Congratulations!

Stinley's avatar

That is a milestone! Well done @Cruiser

Cruiser's avatar

@chyna Thank you for starting this party up…you have been a great friend all these years.
@tedibear I will keep on Cruisin indeed! Thank you!
Thanks @RedDeerGuy1 Always good to see you here
Hey @MrGrimm888 Always enjoy our spirited discourse and actually agreeing now and then.
@Coloma But hugs to my West Coast darlin! Seems like I have known you my whole life!

Cruiser's avatar

@Mimishu1995 Thank you for your kind words! Much appreciated.
@funkdaddy Hard earned does not begin to describe this long strange trip and steaks sound like a great idea.
@Tropical_Willie You got class and style bringing the 40 Yr Scotch….I will sip the Trump water at this party.
@SergeantQueen Thank you my dudette!
Admiration is mutual @ZEPHYRA Thank you!
Thanks @filmfann Means a lot coming from you sir.

Cruiser's avatar

@chyna I think I will take a break from politics…it has been an exhausting 20 months.
Thank you @jca I had a cuppa Joe and it was a nice change of pace to see Morning Joe talk about something other than Trump thanks to the royal Oscar screw-up! :)
@Stinley Hey old friend! Thank for coming!
Thank you @imrainmaker Looking forward to your 20K down the road.
Thank you my friend @janbb Whenever I see you here I think of this video :D
Thank you @BellaB and thanks for coming to the party!
Thank you @Stinley Hope I haven’t been too much trouble for you and the rest of the mods.

imrainmaker's avatar

You’re welcome @cruiser. It totally depends on you guys and am sure you’ll help me achieving that..)

Jaxk's avatar

A rational voice while the sirens are luring everyone else onto the rocks. Congratulations on a major milestone.

Espiritus_Corvus's avatar

Late as usual.

Congratulations, @Cruiser. And I mean it.

We haven’t agreed on much lately, but when we do, it feels good. Like ther Hunter Thompson thing and our little light-hearted jabs on the ‘50s thread and your thread about “Uze Guys”, when I thought you were actually serious. I now consider that a Fluther meme. Touché, bro.

LOL. I know what it’s like to be in a room full of people with an opposing view and not understand why they are so obstinate as to not see it my way—because it’s so obvious, dammit. And there you are, everyday, sticking to your guns. You’re one stubborn sonuvabitch— you remind me of the guy I shave every morning. I admire your mettle, my man. I may disagree wholeheartedly with your present views on national politics, but I have immense respect for you, bud—and I truly regret those times when I lost my temper and let it get personal. I must admit, you have the cooler head.

I realized not long ago that our diametrically opposed views come from our different occupational choices—you went into private business, and I in public service. If those two worlds could ever come to synergy in the U.S., we would be almost perfect and maybe have a little unity for a change.

I want to think that this could start with you and I meeting somewhere halfway home.

Welcome to the big mansion at 40000 Fluther Drive. Respect.

Cruiser's avatar

Thanks @Jaxk and I appreciate your contributions towards keeping the conservative POV out in the open here.

@Espiritus_Corvus My….thank you for such heartfelt words…I am touched. Even when we may disagree, you do so with reason and purpose that has earned my respect and admiration. I also live vicariously through your stories of where and how you live.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Wow!! Congorats @Cruiser! Amazing accomplishment!

Cruiser's avatar

Thank you dearets @Dutchess_III in 16 short months you will hit 40K yourself! ;)

flutherother's avatar

40Kongratulations @Cruiser a great achievement. We disagree politically but that’s OK, at least you try to argue rationally, most of the time anyway. And liking Frank Zappa is a big plus point. Turn up the volume, relax and enjoy the mansion!

Cruiser's avatar

@flutherother “most of the time anyway” made me laugh and well deserved too! :) I will put a song on just for you

@Thank you @cinnamonk Thanks for coming to the party!

Coloma's avatar

Here’s a song for you too Cruiser…a cruisn’ song. Heard this yesterday in my car. :-)

kritiper's avatar

Well done!

flutherother's avatar

Thanks @Cruiser appreciated. Here’s an instrumental piece for you

gorillapaws's avatar

@Cruiser Congrats, That’s a serious accomplishment.

tinyfaery's avatar

Congrats. I rarely agree with you, but you have stuck it out here on fluther, unlike others, and for that you have my respect.

Cruiser's avatar

@kritiper Thank you sir been fun rubbing elbows with you last few years.
Thanks @gorillapaws I always look forward to your comments and almost always learn something I did not know.
@tinyfaery Thanks! The narcissist in me won’t let me quit! ;)

Soubresaut's avatar

40K! That’s YUGE! Much respect, Cruiser. Well deserved!

To echo others, I appreciate that not only are your points well made, but that I get to hear a perspective outside of the ones I hear in everyday life. Keeps me better at the wheel to understand more than one lane on the road.

MrGrimm888's avatar

Yeah. We got some beef,but you’re a Fluther buddy… Glad you made it. Well deserved sir.

Cruiser's avatar

@Soubresaut Have enjoyed getting to know you and your well placed comments here….thanks!
@MrGrimm888 Thanks again for your well wishes….but Fluther Buddy ain’t never gonna happen~ JK ;)

MrGrimm888's avatar

Peace n love.

BellaB's avatar

Given @Cruiser ‘s title and his great taste in movies , I think we should head out to the drive-in. Maybe a stop at Mel’s Diner on the way. I’ll treat everyone to floats

BellaB's avatar

And because cruising with friends was such a fun part of my teens

this seems appropriate

cookieman's avatar

Nice job @Cruiser!!
I lurve you man.
I really, really, lurve you.

HARD

chyna's avatar

um, you may want to take this to a pm @cookieman .

Cruiser's avatar

@BellaB Just picture a yellow ‘68 Camaro instead of the Pacer
@chyna A minute too late…;)

BellaB's avatar

Ha!

I live a couple of miles from Mike’s real basement

ibstubro's avatar

No sense letting off the gas now!
Petal to the metal – let’s burn a little rubber. We know you’re in control of the wheels!
Congrats.

Cruiser's avatar

Hey there @ibstubro Thanks for stopping by….see you around

ibstubro's avatar

OMG…had to take days for the stink to clear, @Cruiser! ;-)

LuckyGuy's avatar

@Cruiser Wow!!! (I’m late – again!!!) Congrats on the 40k achievement! You’ve helped a lot of people in both the online world and in real life. I think of you every time I see my SEP statement!

I’d be honored to stand and serve next you on that foundation – as long as we don’t talk politics. :-)
One day we will have a cup of coffee in person!

Cruiser's avatar

That’s a deal @LuckyGuy And you need not worry as I almost never bring up politics in real life. The only one to not run out of the room screaming if politics comes up are my sons. I tried twice with my wife and she slapped me both times.

LuckyGuy's avatar

@Cruiser I think we need to hold our board meeting at @Espiritus_Corvus ‘s locale. I’m sure it would be a memorable trip.

Coloma's avatar

^ and of course you will need a hostess, allow me to volunteer. I will be your charming and humorous St. Pauli girl, laying whisky down, oh wait, that’s Brandy, well, she can come too. lol

Cruiser's avatar

A tropical meet up is a fab idea @LuckyGuy! @Coloma If you are going to be our St. Paulli girl you will have to wear the outfit!

Coloma's avatar

^Well..I am about 30 years past my St.Pauli girl prime but I still have great legs. haha
I want you men in Lederhosen or Kilts. Make it a costume party!

ucme's avatar

I pretended not to notice this so I could turn up fashionably late with the housestaff in tow, Carstairs will serve your drinks til the cows come home, for a negotiated fee of course.
Congrats big fella ;-}

Cruiser's avatar

For those of you Jellies that know me…thank you from the bottom of my heart for this milestone….for those of you that we may not see eye to eye….harrumph. Been a long weird wild ride…

Strauss's avatar

@Cruiser, Heartfelt congrats and kudos. On politics, we usually see each other from the other side of the firing line, but I admire your conviction. I also think you are one of the most respectable and respectful opponents I have “debated” here on Fluther.

So much for our differences. Let’s drink to Starved Rock and Marshall stacks!

Cruiser's avatar

@Strauss Hell and Yeah (Knuckles)!! —Can’t leave out Buffalo Rock or Mathieson State Park

rojo's avatar

Hey! Way to go!

Belated Congratulations!

syz's avatar

Congratulations!

Patty_Melt's avatar

Well, I am beyond fashionably late, well into the pathetically late category. I guess that makes me designated driver. Lemmee find a bus.
@Cruiser, it is no mystery to me you reached 40k. You’re the man!

Earthbound_Misfit's avatar

Nice to see you cruising across this line. You’ve had a few stops along the way, but I’m glad you’ve stayed with the race.

Cruiser's avatar

Jells like you @Earthbound_Misfit provide reason to keep on keepin in the Tide Pool!

JLeslie's avatar

I hate that I’m so late to this party.

Congratulations @Cruiser!

I always look forward to your answers. :)

Cruiser's avatar

@JLeslie Better late than never my friend!

wilma's avatar

I am very late to this party. Years ago, I used to fluther every day. Now it’s months between my peek in the door.
Congratulations on another milestone @Cruiser !

Cruiser's avatar

Awww…great to hear from you @wilma We go back a long time!

Dutchess_III's avatar

@wilma! Come back! Damn it. I was so excited to see you I dropped my bagel, face down on my key board. Cream cheese all over.

wilma's avatar

@Dutchess_III I can picture that little mess, and it made me smile! I’m glad you remembered me.

ARE_you_kidding_me's avatar

Way late, congrats!

tinyfaery's avatar

Have to amend my response. I guess I don’t have any respect for you.

Earthbound_Misfit's avatar

^I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t return. Every now and then he seems to need a Fluther break.

Patty_Melt's avatar

We all do, now and then, don’t we?
I reckon he looks around, leaves, and we just don’t know.
Damn! I was wrong.
I just checked, and his account is gone.
Fucking haters.

rojo's avatar

Hope he comes back. He and I agreed on many things, we just did not agree on the answers. but he was an asset to the community and I miss him.

Earthbound_Misfit's avatar

I noticed he’d gone a while ago. It’s been a few weeks.

Mimishu1995's avatar

Strange, this time he didn’t change his avatar to the jellyfish…

Earthbound_Misfit's avatar

He’s cancelled his account @Mimishu1995 (for now anyway). He’s done this before. I’m sure he has his reasons.

Patty_Melt's avatar

I knew he hadn’t responded to anything in a while. I thought he just took a break waiting for the Trump talk to cool down. Now I’ve seen his profile gone.
He’s way cool. I hope he comes back.

Aethelwine's avatar

You threw my 10k partay many moons ago. You are a good friend and a good man. Congrats to you!

We all have our own way of taking a sabbatical from this site. It doesn’t make one less of a person if they delete their account to find peace of mind.

Patty_Melt's avatar

OMG! Welcome back, dammit!
