Red face Crotchety old men

All this halibilue going on about the National and all the coments about the old guard not willing to change etc - etc caused me to look back over my posts and to my surprize, the posts showed me the profile of a crotchety old man. Me, David Alan, why I'm as nice a fellow you might want to meet, a crotchity old man? no - it can't be - someone else must be writting this dribble.

Sometimes I guess we get in a rut and say things that just don't need to be said. I may have been right some of the time but my posts just didn't add anything to the thread. Didn't help - didn't resolve - didn't do much of anything but paint a unattractive picture of myself. For that I am sorry.

So I say to you, fellow forum members, I'll try to do better. Maybe old guys can change. I really like the forum and all of you who make it up. There may be afew others on the forum that should sit back and review their posts and see what kind of picture they paint

David Alan,

You are totally correct, we should all take a deep breath and thing before posting to an emotional thread. I thought about posting several times, but could not think of anything constructive to add. I am still confused about the resolution.

Bill

Crotchety old men

Did someone call me? .... I'm usually relaxing amongst the brambles and briars, munching on rose stem thorns.

Is that you Fred? I wondered who was making all the noise in the next patch over.

Perhaps the old rule for letters would be good here. Write three posts and discard the first two!

I did'nt fight in the Spanish-American war to get lectures from whippersnappers like you.

Now go get a job you beatnik!

If I were not a crotchity old guy. I'd agree with you.

Bill

Excellent point. I acknowledge that many times I should probably be more introspective in my posting, and that I also should probably limit my posting to before happy hour.

DavidAlan,
Karma to you for recognizing something about yourself that you can change. We have all made posts that we later regret, not all of them have been deleted or edited when perhaps they should have been.
Dave

Hail, Wally, full of grace,
the stream be with thee. (and also with thee)
Blessed art thou amongst designers,
and blessed is the fruit of thy genius,
for thou hast given Shine to the Air of our dreams,


spectales, testacles, wallet, cigars.
