It's now time to hop along to other things......

I figured it would be fitting to end this with something that became somewhat of my trademark....paint. My son wanted to be in a pic since my other three kids had already been in one so it seemed fitting to have him in the final one.

I would like to thank all of you for such great memories over the last three years, especially Stachtastic and ThatGuy who for the last three MM's have encouraged me to do my best to entertain everyone and who have become great friends. This would also go for Binkleberry who for the last two MM's has done the same, and who helped show me a fantastic time at this year's StacheBash.

To all of the rest of you that I have met both in person and in chatting I will cherish all of the time that we have spent together and carry it with me always.

Lastly I would like to thank mackle and the others responsible for making this site happen, because without you none of this would have been possible.

I wish everyone the best in years to come and you can always look me up on facebook if you want to keep in contact. (I can't figure out the link right now but it is under Matthew H. England, haha!)

Peace Out!


ThatGuy says:
This is the most excellent exit for the master of paint. And including some more of your family is just par for the course for such a classy participant. You've been a blast to share these experiences with, from our shared rookie year all the way to the end. And you've undoubtedly brought the thunder with your talent from day one. You are a master and without question one of my favorites. Your dedication to this venture is unparalleled and that is why you deserve every bit of the adoration you receive. We shall meet again, so there is no goodbye. See you later my friend. Excellent shot.

hey, it was great meeting you, you are a master. but i think you have too much face paint laying around your house to just let it go to waste next year. so go CLAME and keep being a master.

Binkleberry says:
This is a fitting finale for one of Moustache May's greatest contributors. It's been real and it's been fun, and I'd even go so far as to say it's been really fun. Your daily shenanigans will be missed, but the friendship is something that will carry on long after this site is permanently archived. You're a solid dude, Hodges. I just don't know any other way to put it.

Hodges. I painted my face once. Once. I won Mayor, and I was like, 'thank god, I never have to do that again.' How many times did you do it? 80? So incredible. I was able to check in this month, and all I had to do was check the Mayors to see all of your pics. I can't believe someone with your energy exists, you are the boss's boss. Take care man, try to find some other outlet for this kind of creativity. The world needs you.

Hodges, you have been such a great inspiration to everyone on this site. I think you taught us all the valuable lesson of being personable with strangers. You have welcomed so many people on this site. And your work, has been even better. You have masetered the fine art of face painting, and have shown a unique creative side with your photography. I wish we didn't live 1500 miles away, so we could hang out some time. If ever my endeavors should carry me to the nether regions of Ruston, LA, I will be sure to look you up. Keep on inspiring people. Thanks for all you have done.
