    I don't know how exactly to say you kinda hit the nail exactly on the head... I've been in pain management for 8 years, so while it's prescribed, it's the same thing. Not that I'm proud of it. You just hit eerily close to home.

    Thanks for the message, nice to meet you. Congrats on being psychic. :p

    Hey Tim,

    Thanks for selling to me. You made something difficult easy and painless, and I'm thrilled with what I got out of the deal. I appreciate you being willing to trust a new guy, sometimes it's hard to break through in a secondary market on either side buyer/seller. Glad to have met you and happy to consider you a new friend (that is if you don't mind).

    @Leonardo63 & @resinguy - Leonardo63, you sir, post entirely too much. LOL. Thanks for pointing out the TGULB. It's kind of a dick punch though. I showed my wife what I was interested in (before shopping on BF) buying the week before the release. Started shopping again two weeks later after health problems, and it was around the middle of the second week in October I talked to Amy and finally after 10 years got added to the mailing list. So long of the short, I missed the release by a matter of two weeks. Anyway, I took your post with a grain of salt, because everyone whose ever lurked Busse forums or shopped Busse secondary market is probably well aware of cheesecake and scotch. I didn't think anything of it until resinguy desided to post the "our secrets" line... Then for about an hour I read everything I could trying to figure out if there was any credence to the nonsense about cheesecake, and JWB... Now I want to mushroom stamp the both of you. LOL.

    That said, if you are ever in the mood to trade knives for whiskey, I have a couple bottles that I'd be happy to trade you 3-5 Bussekin knives per bottle.

    Well played resinguy. Well played.

    Thanks for the messages, nice to meet both of you!

    I am realizing this very quickly. I wish like hell I could have been around to purchase a BOSC-ID, god they are beautiful.

    Thanks for the post, nice to meet you.

    I'm honestly less a fan of "No Regrets" than I am "Buy once, cry once."

    If you even have the chance to say you regret it, you shouldn't have been buying it in the first place. If you cry when you see your bank statement, you can immediately make it better buy going and playing with your new amazing toy, or by cutting up your bank statement (or in Busse's case - monitor with the bank statement on it) with your new toy.

    I don't think I left anyone who was kind enough to send me a message a reply, but if I did, it was accidental. I had no idea how many of you had posted replies. Thank you for such a warm welcome. I had no idea how many of you goofballs watched the forums on a regular basis to come out and say hello to a newbie. Thanks again everyone!

    Thanks for your thanks. We’re a pretty tight group. Few other people understand our particular “obsession.”

    Oh, even though I'm not a knife guy per se. I get it. I have obsessions you guys would laugh at. I'm really trying hard not to get sucked into this one further than I already know I am. I have two blades I'd like to add to what I have now. One is the knife I was originally looking for, the other is one that is really nothing more than a waste of money so I can say "lookey here".

    I feel like a crow/raven, whatever one of those birds is that builds a nest and decorates it with shiny things. Lol

    There are Collectors. And abnormal people. Clocks; radios; chessboards/sets; stamps; coins; books; knives; Second World War ephemeral; guitars. One thing or another over the years. And an interesting way to live.

    Yeah man I know where you are coming from. They had me on oxys for 2.5years and then suboxone. It's not a fun feeling realizing your body is now hooked on a substance, then having your doctor tell you it's fine and then up your prescription. At least you realize it... Stay strong my friend.

    Anyways, yeah Busse is a lot like that ;)

    No Regrets is something we tell ourselves to make peace with our . . . regrets. Lol

    In Busse land, it's more about not regretting the blown college fund or not regretting that grail you passed on or sold in a moment of weakness. :D:D:D

    Crappy thing about it is the pain meds have never gone up, and I can quit them if they can figure out what's wrong with me. The withdrawals suck, but they're over fast. Then I could have a glass of whiskey like a normal person and good whiskey is like sex... The one I really have a problem with is benzos (low dose Valium for tinnitus) that I tried to come off of once after being on them for 7 years. No clue why it stops the ringing but it does. Seems like I may be having some possible success with a new CBD spray that my pain doc is working with Mayo designing. Only problem with it is that it's filled with melatonin and it knocks me out, but only for an hour, then I can't sleep for the rest of the night. But, the withdrawals from benzos had be on the phone with the doc 3 weeks after they told me to quit cold turkey at 2am on a Sunday bawling on the kitchen floor because I was like Nic Cage in Leaving Las Vegas. Those a-holes didn't bother to tell me that coming off that crap was something that can cause seizures et al... Fortunately nothing serious happened, but I basically just ended up having to stay on them because the tinnitus rebound after being on Valium for 7 years made the little tinkle of a ring I've had since I was a kid, turn into one of those real horrible rings that's as loud as a good hangover the morning after standing in front of a speaker rack at a concert the night before... I couldn't hear traffic. Fingers crossed this new snake oil thing they've made actually works, it seems to be so far, but I haven't started to pull the Valium out rotation because we haven't made a long term plan for it.

    Sorry you had to go through the pill cycle too. Eff'ing ridiculous what this country turned into after Prozac. I don't know why all the people know bitching about the "opioid crisis" didn't see it coming a mile away when they did the Kids in the Hall movie in something like the early 90's... Talk about foreshadowing.

    After all of these years, I only regret the knives I passed on. But something else just as good soon came down the road. We...must...control...our...addiction.

    I guess that would be the only way I support the having regrets. It sucks to miss out on things and then crave them after the fact. I've not been, and probably never will be a huge blade guy, but there is limited run stuff of all kinds that I missed by a day here or a week there that just doesn't come available on the secondary market. I feel ya.

    I'm interested in this "whisky" that you deem worthy of a handful of Busse :eek: ~ I may actually have that many scattered around I'm unsure of exactly where they are atm ~ which is not something I'd ever imagined happening.

    True, I may post entirely too much but in all fairness, the majority of it is piglet training - I asked a lot of questions :D and giving credit where it's due, I've had all the help in the world from everyone here-

    Just don’t confuse this line with the song in case you try to put the wrong thing in the wrong sheath.

    Two of my rarer are:

    Crown Royal XR Red. You can still find the odd bottle, but kind “good luck”.

    Jack Daniels 1914 Gold Medal - with a purchased at the distillery medallion.

    As for taste of those - people can say what they want about them both being current production companies but if you want those bottles and can find them more power to you - I love the Crown, but I am partial to Canadian and Irish whiskeys anyway. The Jack Daniela’s I have heard it is amazing, you would have to give me a knife just to smell it. Jack Daniels and I broke up a long time ago and we did not stay friends. I don’t care how special the reserve bottle. God help me I would puke. I can taste and smell it just from typing about it. Lol. Either way, the value in those bottle comes from the fact that they just don’t exist anymore. The bottles of Crown I have were purchased in 2006 and were left over, I just couldn’t bring myself to drink them quickly I like it so much. The JD was purchased ~20ish years ago and will continue to sit until someone sees it and just can’t live without it. Kind of too bad. I bought it for a special occasion at the time and then drank my weight in Jack more times than I care to remember and none of them seem like fond memories at this current moment. :)
