Greetings from yet another Sandbagger

As with many others, have ended up on BLF numerous times from Bing or Goog searches, happened upon some off topic threads and thought the place seemed mighty friendly and decided to sign up.

So, Happy New Year All,
Dave
North Alabama

Thanks sb56637… obvious by the wording of your post you’re not a “bot”… Exactly what I was talking about “mighty friendly” exemplified already!

Hey thanks Chadvone from Iowa!

As for you Racoon city… I’ve seen some of your “welcome messages” and dog gone it, I’m humbled and honored (and enamoured Wink with your welcome… looks like she has the purty green eyes and red hair (well, on my monitor) of an Irish cutie! No, I’m talking about the one in the larger image, not the one sleeping in the tree! Wink

Fer Real!!!! Well, it wasn’t street signs for me when I signed up (if that’s what you’re talkin about)… That capcha(sp?) thing asked ME to check all that had a “Bus”… ok, simple enough, it gave me two buses to start out… then it only gave me an 18 wheeler and what appeared to me to be a Bud Light urban/local delivery truck… finally told it to refresh with a different image, then it wanted to go through about every car on the market LOL!

Thanks for the welcome tatasal!

LOL, SB, I would consider that an honor… I loved that show, watching Clarkson was like watching and waiting on a FUBAR to happen. Whoever put those three together new their casting skills! They only scratched the surface when they did their road trip through Alabama!

Thanks for the welcome MRsDNF!

Talladega’s a little fur out of my regular stompin’ grounds but Teacher may have ventured off down that way, assuming he likes things that go bang. I have to rely on my own pasture, back yard/woods or occasionally visit a range on our State managed wildlife management area.

Thirty, forty year ago, you could go plinkin’ in about any abandoned gravel pit you came across but those days are gone, owners and even some non-owners have put fences around those pits to keep folks out. Terrified of liability I suppose, although I know one of’em, the guy has the mentality of “if I don’t like it and can’t enjoy it, you ain’t neither”… ornery old codger!

Thanks for the welcome there Yourid!
