Default Where is Thias?

Anybody heard from Jim Thias lately? He seems to have dropped off the face of the Earth - his last upload was July 29th and I haven't seen him here in a while either.

Its kind of boring without his animated GIFs.

I think he has moved on to other interests, at least for now.

I heard he joined some "The Truth is Here" group.. Not sure what all that is about.

I noticed some high ISO shots-the night shot at Lilly and the fall colors at Horshoe-that are just phenomenal!

It wouldn't pass the muster as an explanation if he had always hated us.

Has my humor reached the point of being so dry that no one realizes that it is humor?

Have a glass of water. It will help with the hiccups.

He just uploaded 2 shots from 2009 so he has returned after being released by the alien captors. Welcome back Jim.

He's celebrating Sierra Nevada Pale Ale's 30th Anniversary today, and doesn't want to be bothered...

Don't blame him!!!

I actually met him in real life, I'm not sure where he lives but he photgraphed some trains with me in Sturtevant WI a month or so ago. His Girlfriend lives in my area, so I'm assuming he lives around here, too.

Perhaps that is why he is MIA - he has one.

Maybe he was just on a really bad rejection streak and had his upload limit dropped to 1 per day.

Ok, that made me laugh pretty hard.

I'm alive and well and really entrenched in sports right now (part of the reason why Daniel met me in his neck of the woods), and I felt like I needed a break from the forum so Joe could overtake me with the 2nd highest post count. If I had held out a little longer, Ween would have bumped me to 4th place.

Great to have you back, so I can enjoy the show.

You are welcome back as long as you replace that avatar.

Oh, oh, that is probably a mistake, Jim will just put a worse one out there.
