If It wasnt for hop I wouldnt have met my husband.

If it wasnt for hop I wouldnt have my angel of a son.

If it wasnt for hop Flynty wouldnt be napping on my couch right now.

If it wasnt for hop I would have no idea what a wibble is.

If it wasnt for hop I wouldnt have so many friends in all courners of the world.

If it wasnt for hop I wouldnt have amazing plans for our family to visit the Yookay.

If it wasnt for hop I wouldnt have such a skewed view of icecream.

Im so thankful for hop....
There seems to be so much discord about Hop at the moment, and a little bit of Old skool vs New skool... but when its stripped right down and the politics are removed from it, Hop has changed my life in so many positive ways, and Im damn appreciative of it...

This is a thread so that people can tell us about their "if it wasnt for hop" stuff. Please dont bring any politics or rants in here, lets just appreciate the fact that we are lucky to have hop and all the selfless beautiful people who give it to us and work on it on a daily basis.

If it wasnt for HOP:
I wouldnt be writing this right now.
I wouldnt be living with a monkey on a houseboat.
I may not have continued something I was good at and enjoyed doing.
I wouldnt have spent much of last year around the country standing in fields.
I wouldnt have found out so much about myself.
I wouldnt be nearly as happy.
I wouldnt have met some of the greatest people I am ever likely to meet.
I wouldnt know more about people on the other side of the world whom I have never met, than people I see every day.
I wouldnt be able to stay pretty much anywhere in the world for free biggrin
I wouldnt know what a Durbs is.
My eyesight would be better wink
My clothes would have stayed on more devil
