    I rather not give an age or birthday because it makes it easy for the Russian Hackers. ?
    Let's play it safe and say an age window between 55 and 65. ?
    First name "First", last name "Bubba"! LOL!

      This thread made me chuckle this morning. Yes Treestand, I've been assigned to more F&S duties since layoffs. It's less than I do on the OL side, but still more than I used to (which was zero). I'm mostly handling their Facebook page. And I'm not sure Matt. You were blocked from "answering" the question, but it let you reply to threads?

        Bubba, please don't answer that question.

          I think it was just the same thing that's been happening occasionally to others: You hit "post" and it says that it's posting but then it's not there. It only happens every now and then. For a moment, though, I thought maybe I'd been blocked for decency issues, since I did have the word "snotheads" in there somewhere (in reference to how some of us, regardless of age, can be a little juvenile at times - myself included). No big deal; thanks for the response.

            Someday, somewhere, a printout of an FS or OL thread is going to be submitted in court by somebody's lawyer. If it hasn't already happened, that is ....

              Ages listed so far: 15, 18, 21, 21, 31, 57, 58 = average of 31 years, 7 months. But actual average is much higher.

              I'm guessing Matt is in his 30's... 99Explorer, 6Point, Bubba, Gary, Jimbo, and OHH are in their 60's... Treestand and Richard in their 70's. I believe Happy Myles is 80+ (My apologies for those I've left out)... so average age is probably early 50's.

              JCARLIN, I always appreciate your posts. Don't be discouraged. Sometimes old men just get grouchy
              Actually I'm 46 -- but I don't look a day over 44.

                Most couples have "pet" names for each other.
                I simply call my wife "mom" most of the time.
                When we met in 1978, I was introduced by my nickname which I've used, basically, since birth. I'm a "Jr.". Two same first names around the house got confusing, so I got stuck with the nickname.
                Until the first grade, I had NO idea what my given name was.
                When Mrs. Imogene Marshman informed me otherwise, I went immediately into shock!
                "No ma'am. That's my daddy's name."
                I literally ran 6 blocks home to have a discussion with my mother about that liar, Mrs. Marshman!
                With horror and dismay, I suddenly learned that I had lived nearly 7 years under an alias!
                To this day, I still introduce myself by my nickname.
                To this day, that's the name my wife calls me.
                My last name is short, but so distinctive (not famous, just rare) that anonymity would be nigh on to impossible.
                Therefore, you'll never see it here.

                  G. Devine,
                  In 1969, I was working at an office in Devine, Texas about 50 miles south of San Antonio, Texas.
                  My first job was billing freight out of the local peanut farmers cooperative.
                  Imagine, if you will, the thoughts running through the mind of an 18 year old as he tried desperately to type "Devine Nuts, Inc." as shipper on the waybill without cracking up!

                    Growing up, my nickname was a constant.
                    When I heard my mother yell, "Given name, Jr!", I knew I had screwed up something or somehow!

                    Once, in a tizzy, my mother stepped out the back door and yelled, "Given Jr! Get in here! I'm going to beat you!"
                    From the barn, a plaintive, "Yes, ma'am." came back.
                    When I got to the house, mother was sitting in the kitchen, laughing herself silly!
                    I hadn't actually done anything wrong, but the fact that I would obediently come when beckoned, despite the threat, was funny.
                    She is 96 years old and we still laugh about it!

                                The wife is Lady.

                                I can't recall the last time she's said my actual name out loud in the second person when not yelling at my son.
