So, @tedford and I are moving in?? That'd be a BAD idea, I fear! hee hee - we'd get in WAAAAY too much trouble. Goodbye on here, but hello in the real world. Don't lose touch. I'll cut ya.

c dub says:
reflection. Ozzy, everytime I see your name I still think of that time you planted your head in the back yard. That cracks me up everytime. i gotta go find that shot again. I just read something you had told @Growershower about the innate bond made by simultaneous beard growing. Something in the DNA. There's gotta be something to that. Great to know you. You gotta heart made of solid gold. See you again soon for sure.

mackle says:
I would make this a big long goodbye about how I thought you were the leacherous / creepy old man of Whiskerino and that I grew to love your antics but you already know that.. AND we're having lunch next Thursday, so I don't wanna make it AWKWARD.

You are one of the kindest men on this thing that I've had the pleasure of meeting. You love the breasts and aren't afraid to speak of it. I learned a lot from that as weird as that sounds.

Godspeed @OzzyNelson. I'll see you soon.

tedford says:
no sloppy goodbyes here. i expect we'll be seeing each other again soon. as a matter of fact, since you're embarking on this brewery adventure you'll likely never get rid of us.

hey, quit looking at @sariebell, i'm over here.

pay good attention at brew school because i'm counting on you to pass on what you learn. i'm also always available to taste and comment on whatever might be brewing. you all take care of yourselves and we'll be seeing you. soon.

ozzy, i'm glad to have met you though all of this. you're a crazy, funny, honest and just straight up guy who can rock a pair of blue glasses like nobody's business.

mattyc says:
YOu are a king too my frieind...and I'm really kinda jealous that i didn't get to roll in your crew at the thrwodown.. It kinda sucked that there were little subgroups but... really no one had a bad time with the people they hung out with in between events..and i'm sure we'll meet again...and you have made this experience a pleasurable one for me. ragging on people for not participating was always fun... I still gotta teach Jr how to unclog a toilet though...so i guess i have to make a trip up to nashveill again soonn

Ozzynelson, you are so awesome! When I think of whiskerino, a few people come to mind, and you are definitely one of them. You inspired me to join up in 2007 and your words, blogs and photos have inspired me as a person. It makes me really happy to know there are people like you in the world. See you around my friend

Ozz-man, you were so cool to have hooked us up on the journey up to Nashville. Keep in touch, and try to make it this way sometime. We could all benefit from some of your kickin' fashion tips!

Fledgling Brewer says:
OK, that bubbling beer is officially scaring me now. Seriously, meeting you and your family and brewing together was one of the highlights of this whole experience for me. Definitely would like to keep in touch and brew more. I'll remember my refractometer next time, promise.

Ozzy - it has been great getting to know you over the past few Whikerino's. This year it was particularly cool to get to know you better. You really helped in so many ways to make this a great Whiskerino.

Paragone says:
As always, it was a pleasure to whiskerino along side of you. You and your family are the best and it shows by how you are willing to open your house and home to (somewhat) complete strangers. You are a good man and I hope to see you in Nashville soon.

It's been an honor and a pleasure growing with you in this final chapter. We didn't get to talk too much at the TD, but it was great meeting you and sampling your home brew. You're one of the guys who define these events and I saw first hand all the work you do to make them happen. Thanks for all of it.
See you in May for the moustaches!

Attn Little Oz - I was happy to get to talk some hockey with you while in Nashville. Keep your head up and hang in there. I am 36 years old, and I play hockey three times a week, coach it twice a week, and referee 2-5 games a week. But I didn't really learn to skate until I was 25 years old. I played them all, and Hockey is my favorite sport. It is the one sport you can play your whole life. The thing is, its more fun if you are good at it. You have an opportunity now to get good at it, and its a skill you will always have. Don't ever let a grumpy coach, or a bully, or a hard body check, make the game not fun for you. Just try your hardest, learn as much as you can, and have a great time. Even if you are not the best player on your team, don't forget how much better you are getting than the kids that don't play hockey. When you are 20 those kids will be getting into hockey, and know nothing, and you'll be skating circles around them.

Attn Big Oz - it was awesome getting to hang with you at the throwdown. You are as cool as I'd thought you'd be + a great accent to boot. Your beer was damn good too. This empty house above makes me think you are moving to Jamaica or something, it amplifies the fact that I won't be seeing a silly picture of you every day. Hopefully, you will be back in May, but either way, it's been great getting to know you. I hope to share a beer with you again sometime, but lets skip the chugging contest. take care

Attn Mrs. Oz - it was great meeting you at the TD as well. The pic you posted with Ozzy asleep showed perhaps the most dedicated family in the history of these sites, and was laugh out loud funny. Thanks so much for lending us Ozzy for these four months, it was a ton of fun.

mOtke says:
Hunger wasn't the right word. It was more than that. A famished feeling. An insatiable void that had to be filled. A savage desire for subtracting the nebulous. He couldn't be stopped. First it was a pet. It wasn't his pet. Someone else's. Then, of course, he ate one of his own. He thought that maybe it was a dog, but he wasn't sure.

But it didn't stop.

He ate a neighbor, then a tree that was planted right outside his front door. Then he moved on to the furniture. He couldn't explain it. Neither could science. Science had failed him again.

He ate science.

You stand head and shoulders above 99% of these cats simply because of your status as an amazing quality dude, and an incredible host. I'm so glad I got to spend some extra time with you last weekend and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
