Hey, here's a trip in the Way Back Machine:
First movie I saw in a theater was Bambi, and the second was How the West Was Won (both with my parents)
That western was the first time ever I saw blood on the screen from a gun, or anything.
Really tame compared to the gore portrayed these days.

John,

The offensive image has been deleted.

I'm surprised and disappointed you felt that posting a vulgar image would be acceptable. It was offensive back then and it's still offensive now and before you all feel that I'm being too picky or hard on him, I did check with Mike and he agreed that it should be taken down. I'm not throwing Mike under the bus but you guys often think I have some sort of personal vendetta or am waiting to pounce on you for no reason when that's not the case.

We have bent over backwards (OK poor choice of words given the situation :D ) to allow you back under a new name with promises of being a better, kinder version of your old self but I'm beginning to doubt your sincerity and wonder if that was the right decision. We've already shown you some slack that would generally get other members in trouble ony because we felt you were making a concerted effort to restrain yourself and not let things get out of hand like before. We also felt that your presence might help to attract more participants in Random and Controversial Topics but not at the cost of compromising the core values of the site which are to provide technical assistance as well as a community area in a family-friendly atmosphere that everyone can enjoy.

I'm not issuing an official warning to your profile that would carry a loss of points but prefer to rely on good faith that this won't happen again. While we are more lenient in the community areas of the site there are still lines that should never be crossed. That's all I will say on the matter and if you would like to discuss it further kindly start a Pesonal Conversation with me.

Yeah, makes it tough to plan just about anything! We'd like to take a trip up north this summer, but we're unsure what may, or may not, be open ...
Keep it in your plans! Facilities and such are gearing-up again.

Stay safe and remember to keep your hands clean.

Very nice ride Doc!
All is good here, stir crazy but doing my best in this big city of Seattle.
I remember talking countless hours with you about country living and fast cars. lol
I'm hoping the firepit will be here for many years to come. I've always had a good time in here, many fond memories and Thanks To TSG for keeping it from closing not to mention some of the members that indeed kept it alive
That being said
I'll stoke the fire once again and hope to hear from you and others here

Thanks Stephen!

Oh, it is still on, but not sure about bringing any of the grandkids since we don't know what schools are going to be doing, yet. Still unsure of the timing of everything ...

Good (on trip)! I hope it's safe and eventful for you and company.

Schools and their schedules - on or off & when - IS confusing, isn't it? Our grand-daughter (13) was attending school via keyboard during the latter part of last semester (She wishes she was physically back in the classroom - misses her friends ;)). This coming year is going to be a perplexing one for the schools and the decision making that goes with it. I just hope it's all the right decisions.

*stokes the fire*
Normalcy has a new meaning of late, how much of it's change is permanent is still a grey area. Adapting seems to be the new and important thought process.

We were talking about ol westerns and I have many a fond memories of going the the drive in theatre to watch such movies as hang em high the good-bad and the ugly. A timestamp in my earlier years and I wish those drive ins still existed. Grab some popcorn, bon bons, red vines and a large soda or just bring our own food. Folks were kind of frugal.

On another subject that many of us are trying to deal with. Social distancing due to the virus.
I boarded a bus today and one guy was standing in the aisle close to other passengers, casually turning from side to side to chat to other passengers! I was lucky enough to be a few rows behind him. Had he been close to me he would have lived to regret his action. I'd have knocked his block off!:mad:

Remind me not to mess with you, unless at a safe distance! (I think 4-5,000 miles ought to be safe!)
