    Lordy, lordy, "DeathwatchBeetle is over 40, actually over 1691, Posts not years.

    You folks know I am Whacko, if you don't I am telling you it is true, as true as blue is blue. I am approaching a milestone on his forum. One I dread. A truly personal thing, like not going out with clean underwear when riding in an airplane.

    When I hit Post #1790 I am going to ask one of our wonderful moderators a question. I will come with my hat in hand like a supplicant asking for re compensation. I will be humble and simply ask a question. It will go something like this....

    "Moderator person I have a question for you. It is this........" and I will ask my question. I will ask them to simply give me one of 4 answers: They being....

    1. Can't
    2. Won't
    3. Will
    4. Here's a free rope go hang yourself.

    I will do the "Scissors cut Paper" routine to decide which of the eight to ask. There are a diversity of moderators, from the technical, through the invisible to the religious. We will see which one I decide on.

    If I don't make Post 1791 you know what happened.

    If I survive that trial by fire, I will continue to Post till I hit 1799 and then I will ask all you folks a question. I expect civil answers cause I got the rat button now. Ya ever see a rat eat it's babies? It is worse than seeing a rabbit Doe devour her kits.

    So just a heads up. Postbeetle

    Mr. John, what is the chance of you giving us a 72 or 96 hour advance notice of this historial moment. I would hate to have a guide trip on that day, I'm sure I would or could not give it my best, knowing what might take place. Please and thank you. Mr. Mac

    There you go pickin on the Mods again. They'll be nervous till 1790 now.
    At the rate you yap that'll be next week.:wink::smile2:

    Personally, I thought this was a thread about your birthday, when is your birthday? Need to know so I can send a present by carrier pigion.

    Try to behave yourself beetlebug, we'ed miss your posts if ya get the Mods too upset. Although I think it's pretty hard to anger some of them.:roll_eyes:

    My grandmother used to "keep" me when I was little. She spoiled me R O T T E N.
    When she made a cake, I got to lick the bowl. I can see her sweet smile as she sang to me "Lick puppy lick. Lick puppy lick. Stand back big dog. Let the puppy lick"

    Now, I do not have any idea why your thundercloud brought this to my mind. But, I hope it makes ya grin just a little. I made me smile to remember.

    im gonna take a stab in the dark with my kabar here.

    you are not only getting close to knighthood (that will be some heavy armor).

    but, i also think you are approaching a significant date such as your b-day. maybe you are 1791 years young and turning 1801? either way give us the heads up.

    I think it might be the mode of transportation that is the root of the problem here. I'm sure he can manage the armor, but climbing atop an animal he considers none too swooft isn't to his liking.

    i dont know if he is afraid of becomeing a knight or not. from what i understand them boys up in that neck of the woods get all googly eyed over anything shiny. if they gave beetle a suit of armor i dont think he would ever get out from in front of the mirror. lol:smile2:

    Kinda like a Lieutenant 'eh Joe. Depends on whether they can see my "Sword" It is probably a two way with a lot of filters.

    John, I see you hiding in the corner of this thread. Keep that camera in the closet, stay in the house, and leave us out of it. With all that snow out your way and the reflection, we might be BLINDED! :crazy:

    The way i see it is if we keep him on here long enuff before Nancy comes home for her supper, he will reach that milestone in no time. Like this afternoon. Then we'll all know what he is up too pretty quick!!!!! Just a thought!!!! Keep bumping this to the top so we'll find out!!!:wink:
