Thanks to you,Myriads,and the mods for the TMF.Another poster mentioned how finding the TMF was a life changing experience.It sure was for me.See you in May.
Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn.
I really appreciate you saying that, man. See you soon

I lurked for over 4 years, but that's another story. To me Jeff was always this mythical figure, the high and mighty Creator of the premier tickling site on the planet, who certainly appreciated the presence of, but didn't have much other contact with, the common folk.
I was proven very wrong on this count when I met Jeff at a SNOB munch last fall. Jeff, it turns out, is a regular guy who is passionate about his career and this community, talks with everybody, expects excellent restaurant service, and does not put himself above others.
It was a great pleasure to have met you, Mr. TMF, and I hope our paths cross again.

The F did you get sued for?
By the way, MTP was the first tickling video site I ever found. Ahhh the days of patiently waiting for the previews to download on a dial-up connection.
The lawsuit is a long story that I only tell in person, not here

Jeff, tickling fetishists sorely needed a home, a community to call their own. Like you (and no doubt others) I have felt in the past alone in my personal love for tickling, I always thought there must be something wrong with me, I love, no desire to tickle women's barefeet and soles. I could never get enough of it. It was something I always kept to myself like I had some sort of dreaded disease and probably would have stayed that way until the advent of the Global internet. When I first accessed the 'net, the first thing I did was to type-in the word "tickle" or "tickling" to see what "popped" up. To my amazement, I was only expecting to see one or two sites, instead, four dozen sites popped up but their were disappointingly "porn" sites. As time moved on I started to see more and more sophisticated sites and things did get better culminating in the fall of 2000 with the birth of the TMF which completely "centralized" the entire tickling community from all over the America and now Globally. The tickle fetish has come out of the closet at long last and we're starting to see more and more inclusion of tickling in our society thanks to sites like this one. Much like the foot fetish has become a normal part of our current society I see the same thing happening with the tickle fetish.
The Conservative Era RIP 1980 - 2012
The recent 2012 Presidential election last fall provided more evidence that America is a left-of-Center country now. Conservatism was roundly rejected by the majority of voters. This proves that the so-called "Conservative era" is now over. On this current course, The GOP will eventually fade away unless they change their course and start agreeing with the rest of the country. Conservatism is on its way out.
You're basically the only person in my life who consistently doesn't
make me feel like an asshole (unless I'm being an asshole), who always
shows up when you say you're going to show up, and does exactly what
you say you're going to do. You spend consistent, quality time with me,
and you never act like it's a chore. I can't tell you how appreciative I am.
You're one of my very best friends, and for that I am grateful. If you called
me up at 3am and asked me to make you tacos and bring them right over, I
totally would do it.
Strength should not decide a battle. There is a weapon for every fight.

Wow. I still remember you contacting me when I was doing the website and videos for Solefully Yours. You'd barely started and had all sorts of questions about the site management, video clip creation (fighting AVI sizes and QuickTime's complexities back then was so fun), and promptly went on to kick ass and take names.
Ya left out an event I remember you hosting for the West Coast Gatherings. Then again, while I had a great time hangin' with ya, it's not so mentionable.
Still glad yer in this, brother. Always glad.
You were, I believe, the second person I purchased tickling videos from, in what was probably 2000. I can even remember that those two videos were Phoenix's First Time and Laura's Feet, both of which I enjoyed hugely. I can remember expressing the same sentiments expressed above, emailing you and saying how great it was to find a producer who didn't make his stuff look like blatant and trashy porn with "the model's legs jacked apart like a sacrifice". Didn't I also say I stopped trying to count how many times Laura said "no" after it reached six figures?
Thank God for the TMF, which got most of us started. Certainly without it there would be no UKTF and no BAST and little else on the British scene.
Now get some more of your old VHS's digitised and in your effing clip store!
By the way... this... -------> :england2: is not the English flag as the code says, it's the British flag. :-D
