Man it seems like the time passes by so fast these days don't it?
I remember when the Boards had a much different look to them back when it first started out.
Though I might be remembering the colors wrong but iirc they was what black and red at the time and changed again a while later and then came these latest changes to it.

I also remember when I first started to actually write actual 'battle stories' because of the feed back I had gotten from everyone and gotten better as time went along.

To be honest I think I had grown more thanks to everyone here.
We also helped get each other get through some tough times over the years as well and that to me just shows how much of a family BTU is, though we may lose touch or lose love ones and friends over the years we will always have BTU in some form or another and the fact that we all love BT regardless of how much it might change.

I have started to read over my old mech posts(who knew I had so many lol) and I could see where my poor writing skills have started to improve.

I enjoyed that show as well.
Red green show and the duck tape antics was how I came up with some funny moments from the Fluff pieces I did.

like the Trilobite II and the duck tape fix for some quick repair I had gotten a chuckle out of just thinking about what was actually going through their heads as they zoomed off.

We're hunting Clanners!

Seriously though, been Administering our WDS/MDT Servers and the print server at work.
We just got our new boss and he is a micro-manager. Been trying to catch up on sleep in the down time.

'Lo GRUD!

where are you hiding out these Days?
Spending more time on FB than I should. :oops:

Got a new home, in TOWN, and I've got FAST Internet now at least! :mrgreen: :thumleft: :thumleft:
Semi-used to the traffic noise. There's a sewer-lid on the street nearly ever car rolls over, and I hear that pretty often. :P My mail can come between Noon and 9PM, which is weird. I feel sorry for the mailman, having to be out so late! I miss hearing the owls and even coyotes though, as well as petting my Dad's cats. :( I drive out there every 2-3 days to feed them though, and will continue to do so until the Cousin I sold the place to gets someone moved in. I put my cat down back in 2017, he was the THIRD I've had to give "The Big Needle" to, and I just can't do it again. :cry: And there are PLENTY of mice, rabbits and squirrels for the cats to catch and eat, with the occasional slow/stupid bird in the mix. :lol: They're NOT in ANY danger of starving! :thumleft: :wink:

FAT CAT does NOT mean 'being overfed'.
for my cat,
it means "really GOOD hunter"
caught him dragging a rabbit across the yard yesterday.
Good to hear that GRUD is doing better.

WORD: HUNTER.
