As a relative newcomer to the GRM fold, I will always regret not having been along for the whole time.

I'd like to say that you're a lucky man, but I can't leave out the fact that we make our own luck.

By this, I mean that if you weren't doing a great job, there wouldn't have been thirty years of GRM.

Thirty years is impressive, whatever the case.

Congratulations!

30 years? Really? I think the Suddards must have violated some child labor laws when they brought you on board, but it looks like everything worked out OK and the statute of limitations has passed. Congratulations!  Keep your right foot down and enjoy the drive!

That was an incredibly cool car. One of those will be in my eventual dorky-but-awesome car museum.

Hell of an accomplishment, congrats JG. 

I'll admit that I giggled a little at the full hair Renee and JG. 

Was this from a time before color photography?

I think we literally had the film processed wrong at Eckerd's and it came out kind of cool.

Congrats, JG!!!  Hard to belive time passes that fast.  

Consider something you all established- the Challenge.  You had worked for less than 10 years when that started.

Amazing what you've done in the last 30 years.

Oh, dear Bob - this could be a picture of me from college.  Except I would have been wearing grey camo army pants.  And not doing anything that cool.

Congrats, JG!  I've been 12 years with my current employer and that's 2x longer than I've ever worked anywhere else.  My best to you and GRM.

That right there is a very telling sentence...film...processed at Eckerd's...laugh

Congrats JG.  My longest stint anywhere is less than half of your time at GRM...

The next longest is less than half of that...

We used half-off coupons, too, for that processing. 

30 yrs anywhere is awesome. If it weren't for forced child labor JG woupd be a lot closer to retirement.

Heck with the congratulations, thank you for devoting 30 years to us misfits. 

I feel that a line of Vette and Florida jokes of questionable humor are in order. 

 

 

It took me a second to place this photo, but the red couch did it: David's office. 

Congratulations, JG. I miss the Chi Buff, but not what you did to the bathroom after.

One of my favorite GRM memories is hanging with JG on the side of the road when his trailer tire went flat.  He was even the voice of reason when I wanted to go all redneck on the security lug nut.  Congrats!

Congrats to you, JG.  I've been a GRM reader since 1997, and I've always valued your projects and "special" humor.  Keep it up!

I am deleting my original post. I absolutely and unequivocally intended no offense. I apologize to all.

This is a great site, and I hope it enjoys another thirty successful years.
