I was looking at today's date, and something clicked in my mind that the 18th had some significance. Finally it dawned on me that it was on November 18, 2002 that I posted my "furvey" to alt.lifestyle.furry. Sabot L'Ours was born! I still remember how it felt so strange and almost taboo. This was the era of "Sex2K" and "Vanity Fair." There's still a lot of that out there, but now we're considered your run-of-the-mill freaks as opposed to sexually deviant freaks (although there IS still plenty of that to go around as well). It certainly has made life so much more interesting!
