First off, a veteran never forgets his comrades... or atleast that the names he can't seem to place are still locked in the forums. In unalphabetical order: Baitchunker, Anchorpuller, 777, Kat-Tamer, Ryang, Bootshowl, then the three fingered me. Considering I also lost my eyesight in the war, I might've still happened to mess up the naming... it's hard to read brail from a computer screen. And being smart enough to know that I'm a simple kind of man, you'll have to enlighten me on what exactly it is you're saying... unfortunately, but likely, a majority of the time. Anyway, with that said and done, it's now six o' three of the morning. Time for just a few more songs on the radio, then I'll need to turn the coffee pot on. 'Til next time, John.Mr Redd. Never leave a bottle with me and expect it back. If it has a nickel deposit I will concede that back to you.
Some people like big fish, some people like picking up a gun and playing Daniel Boone, some people like making pies. I like playing with words. Words fascinate me. Not necessarily big words. A personal pronoun like the word "You" at the start of a sentence has been used to start wars.
This is a wonderful place. I also like characters. Doesn't do any good to have good words without a "character" to direct them at. And I like blunt words. The more blunt the more it hurts when you shove it in someones eye.
Redd is has been awhile since you have been around. See that little goofy icon in the lower right hand of post screens? Looks like someone took his marbles away or his pacifier. That little devil has gone by a variety of names. That critter is where your 1st amendment rights end and someone else's begins. Good and bad, good and bad. I haven't played with that little pup yet, not for what it was intended for anyhow. That guy who looks like he is constipated is the "Fire Alarm in a Crowded Theater" It has its merits if used properly I suppose. But I envision it used by whiners, and "holier than thou" types who can hide behind a curtain and point fingers. I will never use it. If I have a problem it is my nature to come look you up personally.
Someday before the "man with the scythe" comes and lays his cold hand on me I am gonna pull that fire alarm just to see what happens.
Anyhow Redd Thank You for equating me to your Uncle Tim. That was a compliment and I appreciate it. Redd I will leave you with a question.
Who were the members of that valiant "Two Thirds of a Rifle Squad"? There were six of them.
