Welcome, GW! As you probably recall, the first drink in the Rumpus Room is on the house.

Welcome, GW! emoticon We're so glad you're here!

I LOVE your board-closing story. You'll find that your views on guns have a welcome home here.

And if you love ellipses, you'll LOVE my posts! I use them because that's the way I talk. I just fade out....

Re: Introduce yourself


Thanks for your compliment on my bio, GW. (I'm late acknowledging because our posts must have crossed somewhere in cyberspace.) I noticed that we are fellow editors. Did you know that Lis and Susie are editors, and Robbie is Miss Grundy? We talk about language in Miss Grundy's classroom from time to time.

We have not heard from Hawk in months, and we are very much concerned about him. The last time we heard, he was in very bad health and living in Trieste.

According to pictures on the internet, Anatolian Shepherds are gorgeous. They have a curly tail, like Robbie's Kudo.

Re: Introduce yourself


Welcome to the Time Zone, GW! My recollection of you from the Time boards is as someone who inhabits the reasonable center of the political spectrum.

Teachers, editors and fellow guitar players are all high on the list of my favorite people. I hope you find this place a welcome refuge during these crazy times.

Re: Introduce yourself


Hiya, brickie.

Well, it's Day 6 or 7 of our self-imposed quarantine and everyone here seems to be handling it pretty well.

But a lot of our fellow Americans, those who own small businesses, and those who work for hourly wages are hurting badly and will continue to hurt even more.

When we eventually get COVID-19 under control, our economy is going to be in a very bad way with a lot of small businesses going under and a lot of folks out of work.

And the economy will be in a shambles....it will be a recession bordering on a depression.

Heaven help us all.................

Re: Introduce yourself


Through the magic of the cosmic zap and my internet provider, I'm here. Some of you know me, but I'm hoping I'll be welcome anyway.. I'll come and go, but that's generally what I do these days, come and go..emoticon

I have spent a good long while hanging on the periphery of YAP of late, but I think that's pretty much done at least as an active participant. The loss of Nessus and more immediately, the way Robbie was used by a few of the folks there did much to precipitate this decision, but it was coming anyway. I became uncomfortable with all the pettiness and drama. I've always been more one to vote with my feet than make a fuss.

It is nice to make (and/or re-make) your acquaintances and from time to time when I'm not either fishing or trying to cajole Samuel R. Housecat to use the litter box more regularly, I'll be around. So, a hearty Don Ameche to all and a fondue until we meet again..

Welcome, glherter! You sound like a live one. I like you already for being indignant on behalf of Robbie. Pet Sam for me.

What do we call you?

Thank You, Robbie. I certainly will.

Ms Belle: One of my names is Lee and that would work. As would just plain ol' GL.

Re: Introduce yourself


wow, GL. Welcome home. It has been a while since I've "seen" you. But then I never frequented YAP.

I've stayed mostly in the safe confines of a site run by Robbie.

Re: Introduce yourself


Hi all and thank you..

I've just returned from six hours on the water for a very paltry number of fish (smallmouth bass). That's the way it sometimes goes.

Now its shower and a nap, followed later by raviolis in a olive oil/garlic/red pepper sauce.

I highly recommend this retirement stuff, at least the first half..emoticon

GL, remember the Rumpus Room? We still have it. That would be a better place for this conversation.

Re: Introduce yourself


Hello Everybody!

I call myself Tombstone because I have been living in Arizona now for over 20 years, and have a kindred relationship with the town of Tombstone, and I like to visit there whenever I can. I feel that I used to live here in a previous life, if that were possible. I'd live there today if there were ample employment opportunities, but there are not, so I live about an hour away. It is very easy to take day trips or overnights there anytime I have the yearning to visit. I might move there now that I have been forced into medical retirement and can no longer work.

I have been sporadically reading this board for a few years now, but until today, I didn't realize that I have never posted here before. That is perhaps because I was afraid that I might be to vitriolic for this board. I have been posting on several Runboard boards for about 15 years now, where I used to enjoy debating, but now "debates" are more like knock-down drag-out fights. There was a time that I was able to be civilized as far as Republicans are concerned, but in this age of Trump, I find myself holding more and more disdain for anybody who identifies themselves with the Republican party. Years ago, I used to be able to occasionally vote for a Republican, but in the last decade or so, I consider any Republican as a traitor to this country, and will NEVER vote for a Republican for ANY office, including Dog Catcher! I'm a veteran, and since Trump, for the first time in my life, I feel somewhat ashamed of myself for serving, considering what this country has become under Trump Republican leadership.

I cut my teeth on Excite which shuttered close to 15 years ago, then moved to Runboards' Joys' Polymath, but that board closed about 10 years ago. Then I made my "home" on Runboards' Best Board On The Net, but now a-days probably 95% of the people have since left. It was going to shutter months ago, but we've been pleading to keep it up at least until after the election. I also post on Politics II Runboard, but that too has seen a serious decline in membership. Board posting is not what it used to be. Now I do most of my arguing on Runboards' Escape Velocity which is a board full of delusional Trump sycophants that don't really seem to handle reality. It's hard to argue with people that seem to live in an alternate universe.

Which brings me to this board, where there are actual living, breathing, and thinking human beings. It helps let me keep in touch with the human race, and I greatly appreciate that! With that, I will try to never get too vitriolic on this board, as there is no need to! That's what I've always found nice about reading the posts here. With that, I will do my best to never "pollute" this board with my disdain for anybody who identifies with the republican party.

I know things will get better, Trump will be gone someday, and hopefully his White Supremacist brethren, his Proud Boys and Boogaloo Boys cohorts will be forced to slime themselves back under the rocks that they oozed from.

I wish everybody here the Very Best, and that everybody stay safe from Trump's Coronovirus Pandemic that he refuses to acknowledge, let alone do anything about. You all need to take care of yourselves, because Trump won't, as he doesn't care about you in the least little bit. Good day!
