Congrats to the real Tim Shady. It was a pleasure to work with you in Greenwood a few years back. Your quick wit and somewhat slant on humour were always colourful and an funny, to me anyways. Good luck on the your next step in life. What out for the gage fighting, as it can be a slippery slope. I’m sure you will make out fine, where ever life brings you!! take care!!
