DA old timers
Long time no see…
I hope things are okay with you.
Other than a broken ankle this summer, I'm fine. Just getting back to normal after 2.5 months in a cast. Blew my whole summer, but now I feel good again cause I'm FREE!
I hope your summer was more interesting than mine.
When I saw your comment on the other thread today, I was thinking that maybe our trollish friend did perform a valuable service after all-- in that he POSSIBLY helped inspire you to come off of the sidelines. I was away for a bit too, and I'm not even sure why. (Small type seems like a lame excuse now…)
We both have had a bit of the troll in us at different times, so perhaps its fitting to come back to the forum over a nice kabob!
PS It's NOT a table-- its part of the sculpture.
Glad you're mended already, but sorry you had to go through that. I had no idea.
By the way, I am honored that you consider me an "old timer" even in jest , but in truth, I've only been around for a few years…
Who are the REAL old timers you hope to hear from? I know a good number of the regulars here definitely qualify as authentic DA old timers…
And what is YOUR excuse for being such away for so long? No pressure…
Now if my memory isn't failing, It is my understanding that DA "old timer" SDR continues to criss-cross the USA in an older model Chevrolet Bel Air in search of autographs from American TV personality Rose Marie. His collection is vast, to say the least. Luckily he does continue to post on the forum between small town visits, but it isn't easy. So if any of you design poodles happen to have such an autograph (or a hair bow), please forward it so that he will come home. I miss him, and so do the chickens.
You don't half start in do you, EH. But perhaps that's why I consider you a member of the old brigade. Your directness both in message and involvement from the start made it feel like you'd always been around.
In hindsight perhaps I should've said "long timers" rather than "old timers" as I think the latter may scare a few away.
And while you say no pressure you've definitely put me on the spot, EH. I won't even attempt to name everyone as I'm certain to leave someone(s) out. But Heath, Riki, koen, Olive, Pegboard, woody and whitespike are just a few along with Mr. Wonderful who just weighed in above. Shockingly I'm even half missing SDR. Proof you can get off the smack but you can never really get off the smack.
I have plenty of reasons to curb my involvement on message boards. But that's neither here nor there. I'll try to weigh in when I can but then I don't see alot of the names I'm used to seeing on the forum.
Now I feel like I need to make a list of the DA elite. Thanks heaps, EH. I think I remember Gustavo making a list at some point...
I for one am falling in love all over again. Maybe it's the time of day, here. What time is it there, Mark ?
My collection is anything but complete: I don't have Pee-Wee's bow tie yet.
Could I have been here for 10 years ? Is there a "ten years," still . . . ?
My seal needs coating. What do I do first ?
Of course, Gustavo is a stalwart upstart going back at least a half-dozen years -- or is it longer,
Hi, Lunch. What a great opportunity for a grudge-free zone -- our very own, at DA. Welcome all. Fond memories, and hopeful wishes for a bright future. Let's have a virtual barbecue (or, festive occasion of your choice) . . .
Who has aspirin ? (Just kiddin'.) I'm happy because I'll be building something tomorrow. No greater pleasure have I . . .
