I've been missin' that fur-face! So glad to see you back.
Dearest Randolph Scott, nice to see ya Bud!
I'm happy to see you back and active again - you've been missed. I asked Perrie if you were okay, and she told me you were just taking a rest for a while. I just applied to befriend you and hope you'll accept. Since you've been away I've created two new groups, in case you're interested. Antique and Classic Cars, and Folksongs and Folkways. And I've been posting many many photography articles.
I have be taking a much needed mental health break and am back for what may be a limited time, but I'ill gladly accept your friend offer. My depression has hit me really hard the past few months and I am serious considering hospitalization for awhile, but we shall see. Right now I am home bound in the the house expect for trips I can not avoid like buying food and going to Jewish family services for therapy. I even have my meds delivered by mail now so I don't have to get dressed to go to the drug store. My wife has also become much more disabled and can barely walk, so I spend a great deal of my time nursing her.
Anyway, life goes on.
I just read your article on Veterans. I've been mostly on the road for the last week plus. I would have commented and I did try, but it seems comments are closed on the article. I am retired U.S. Air Force, after serving 21 years and change. I was armed during parts of my career as a Command Post Controller, at SAC bases and in USAFE. Stolen Valor, even if he didn't outright say it is plain old wrong. Sounds like he's a lazy bastard that thinks the world should take care of him.
Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. That's exactly what he was doing. He was trying to portray himself as a veteran, without exactly saying it, to try to get extra sympathy from others for his claim for disability and the government not giving it to him. The simple fact is that he doesn't get disability for his leg because there is nothing wrong with it. But that's really beside the point. It just really pisses me off when someone who hasn't earned the title claims it. He never raised his right hand. He never went to Basic Training. He never served. He does not have a DD214. He is not a veteran. He has, however, removed all of the comments about defending his country in uniform from his Facebook page. I know he doesn't give a shit about my opinion, so others must have jumped on him about it to. Either way I hope he learned his lesson.
Thank you for the FR, Randy. It truly is an honor. (smile)
I thought we were already friends and was shocked not to find you on my list. The pleasure is all mine and I apologize for not noticing sooner.
Thank you, Randy. We were Friends for some time, but, I left NT for several months and just came back last month at Perrie's request to take over the Cat-Adorer group for Stephi Cantley, who was unable to admin the group for a while.
When I left, all my contacts and Friends were dropped off as well as everything else. So...when I returned to NT everything had to start over again. And of course I wanted to get my good Friends back again.
I don't look at my home page that often myself, so no worries for taking a while to see the FR. I'm just glad that we are now Friends again. (big smile)
Here's one for ya Randy...
Calling all Grand Forks Air Force vets: Did you serve here during the Cold War?
Thanks! I just sent them an email saying that I was a Computer Operator for the 321st SMW (SAC) from January 1974 to August 1977.
Saw this. Thought you might find it interesting, or possibly applicable.
Hi Randy, I sent a "follow" request to you and since you haven't accepted it, would like to undo it. How the heck do I do that?
Well, thanks, Randy. Thought you weren't interested and I never persevere, usually.
I've been posting to my Blog for the last week or so... getting almost no reaction.
Now, that could be because no one is interested in what I post ( ). But it could also be because posts to Blogs don't show up in the "Newest Comments" and "Newest Discussions" pages. Blog posts appear briefly on the NT Home page, in "Latest Activity", but they quickly fall off and are lost forever.
So... if you have appreciated my posts in the past, please stop by at my Blog, and if you like what you see there you can:
1) Stop by from time to time...
2) Subscribe via RSS. RSS is a really, really REALLY good way to get your news. YOUR news, whatever YOU want to get. I've posted a tutorial.
Thank you very much Randy for accepting my friend request.
Thank you very much for the friend request Randy. It will be my honor.
I though we were friends too! No problem. and I agree with your synopsis on the other. See my response?
I am going to need clarification . You deleted "flaming fruit" from the following comment . Was it the flaming or the fruit ?
Gladly accept. Thank you sir.
Do you know the secret handshake??
Glad to be your friend. I'm so tired of snow and Ice. Spring is overdue in my mind.
As with A.Mac, proof that people can be friends and hold differing opinions! Happy to accept your FR, MM. Thank you.
Count on my friendship every time!
Got you MM. Glad to be friends anytime.
Mickey, I thought we WERE friends! Did you fall off my list or something? Hmmmm, thank you, anyway, for the FR. Gladly accepted or re-accepted!
