Yes, determined not to be beaten to it this year by one Geggory Thomas, and also hopeful that as the lad is with us a little more regularly these days he might actually see people saying hb'd this time, I start this thread.
So much as can be said about the kid as always - I remember him as a little 14-year-old, and even then his credibility was high. Always shown great promise, and taking to university at 17 years can never be easy, yet so far he has managed it with great aplomb.
So lad - enjoy being 18, enjoy yourself today (and this week if the celebrations are ongoing, as they were and usually are for me) and remember - it's been a Long time coming, so Hop on the bandwagon and Cass yourself idylightful time.
In all seriousness - top lad in every respect. One of the least malicious people I've ever come accross on this site, and always a pleasure to talk to. May you have many more.
