Ron, I cannot express how much the Monkey Island games mean to me. They have always been an enduring factor in my life, bringing them out whenever I can. Just the other day my fiancée saw a place near London called Monkey Island and could not wait to show me as it can be used as a wedding venue! It's that engrained into my existence!
Anyway Happy Birthday Monkey Island - See you at the Scumm bar for a Grog on me!
