My hands are shaking right now guys! This is huge for me.... you have no idea! Mike Seate has been testing the suit for us, including trips to Isle of man with it. I can't thank him enough for his support.

Also, I CAN NEVER THANK YOU the board members enough for making this happen.

I need a gallon of Saki, I will be right back!

Congrats BIGBOY! I'm glad to see your lover modeling the suit! See bietch, I can keep a secret. Oops.

Wow! Congratulations. I'm newer to the site and didn't even know about your company. That being said how do I get me a pair of gloves, if they even come in small female sizes?

That would be the "midwestius minimus" sized glove.

Guys -

I wish I could respond to each and every one of you, but Jet would probably hunt me down and punch me for using up bandwidth...

All your comments and support are appreciated more than any words can express. I can never say it enough. This baby is as much this board's as it is mine. From every first member signing on to buy the first generation gloves, to those who showed support even when I screwed up. And... here is the fun thing, I am not done screwing up yet... "laughing4-giggles". Seriously, there is still a lot of work ahead of us... this is just the beginning.

One thing this does though is validate that the American Dream still exists. To preach a lil bit - I may not have reached there yet, but I got somewhere. To all of you, I thank you immensely for your support in all this. You have no idea how much you play a part in all this.

Bravo "F'ing Zulu!"

WIM Out!
