I wish all of you a healthy and fun filled summer. Tell someone today...that you love them.
I do Mam, every day, she is my life. As to spring and summer I just this morning ordered a ne Mini Barn for the golf cart so that we can park it right at the foot of the deck steps. Walking downhill to thw Dutch barn was allright, it was walking uphill after putting it away that got old fast.

Good to here that blessings have come your way, well deserved I'm sure. You and yours have a healthy happy summer.

Don I don't think we need moderation, Finn pretty well nailed the problem and my simple approach to people like that is simply to ignore them. Much as I try to be a reasonable christian I never ever could take Paul's admonition to suffer fools gladly (wonder it he meant Gladly the cross-eyed bear?)

I think self moderation is the only way to go.

(Thanks for the work you do Don.)

Thanks, but it ain't much. It's more like a computer game. I figure out the spammers' tricks and try to beat them to the punch. For every spammer that makes a post, there are about five that get smoked beforehand. Ain't nuthin' like smoked spam.

Regards,

D-Ray

Chas- don't wuss out on a fellow old nail pounder. I would have to start calling Pete a goat roper and it just wouldn't have the same flavor....

I love and respect you, just don't tell my wife. Our little secret, if you will.

'ey now! Don' be taking me too serious, you know
I would be ashamed if I started some mini exodus from the boards here. My frustration involves more my physical impediments rather than some twit trying to score a wacked O'keefeian point at my expense. Even twits can grow up (I speak from personal experience).
To reiterate what has already been mentioned
D Ray, please don't wield the mallet of moderation here. I think it would do far more harm than good. I happen to enjoy pissin' off the likes of Mezz. Maybe he'll get it, maybe he won't but that will be his decision. Trolls are like little worms-
some metamorphisize into something better, some you just impale on a Gamakatsu and toss 'em into the lake.
Bubba's just gone fishin' for a day or two. Charlie come on out to Californie and I'll show you what real fishin' is.
No bucket mouth ever gets you goin' like a 30-40lb. Yellowtail headed for the rocks with all of your 40 lb line. (We use live squid for bait, Dave!)Heh,heh.

C'mon Bob. You know that I would use a scalpel. I'd cut the heart out of those who disagree with me. (It does seem that some have already had a brain-ectomy)

Regards,

D-Ray

At first, yes. It was very interesting, doing my amateur psychological analysis of all of those imbeciles.

There was really only one interesting charactor that I enjoyed talking too.....A mixed race guy who felt trapped in "No mans land" as he put it. "It's hell trying to make friends in a place where everybody hates everybody and don't nobody identify with me." I'll never forget that.

Honestly, I felt sorry for him.

I imagine!

I know a guy who's against interracial marriages. And he's from WV.

What a stereotype? But, he's the nicest guy, and has helped kids from all backgrounds including putting them up in his home on a regular basis.

If you ask, he'll tell you that in middle school his best friend was interracial. And killed himself because he didn't fit in. You can see the pain still. So, he's against it because he doesn't want to see kids in that place.

Pete
