    Even more interesting to me is I have been participating here since Janruary16 2009 and I can still remember my password. My kids gave me this gadget for Christmas and I steadfastly ignored it, at the time I still had two secretaries to bully if I needed anything off a computer. My daughter made me find a subject I was interested in and start blogging. Hunting was the choice and you folks have been stuck with me ever since.
    Jan 13, 2009.

    I wasn't as regular back then, but hadn't they just begun to require a log in? For a bit you could post comments and articles under any assumed name, then you had to provide at least an email address I think, then this system. Based on the number of Jan '09 starts, I'm guessing it was the beginning of the current username system.

    Another interesting fact, I thought, is that if you assume everyone listed on this post has been hunting/fishing since birth (which I know isn’t quite true), there’s almost 1,000 years worth of experience on here

    Hadn't thought of a sonnet. Was thinking more of an invitation to my Lodge on my Vast Estate for a week long deer hunt during the January rut.
    She better hurry because I'm getting to the age where the young women just won't leave me alone---they figure they can infatuate me into marriage, then explode my worn out old heart with intense sexual activity and inherit all my money. It won't work. My wife won't let me. Probably wouldn't let me have Natalie at the Lodge for a week---nah, she'd just laugh and make an inappropriate comment about old dogs chasing cars.

    Jimbo - That is not an original quotation. It is a humorous remark that I recall reading in Pogo many years ago, not to be taken seriously here.
    I forgot to put the smiley face at the end, which I will now do.

    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. ?
    Honk, it was not my reunion thread, because Pig Hunter did ask what year was it, and I avoided his question like the black plaque. ?

    I believe that expressions of remorse can be helpful when you appear before the sentencing judge:-)

    Happy, my Father retired at 54 and was beside himself. All his gambler friends were still working and his lifetime of getting up at 5am seemed hard to abandon. So, he got a job driving a school bus. Not the ordinary one but the smaller yellow bus that picked up the handicapped kids. Many times he would have to get out and help them into the bus. He got the biggest kick out of that, as they to did enjoy him. When school was out he was on his boat going from the St.Lawerence to Ft.Lauderdale and points inbetween.

    I started on F&S as "Bubba" in '05 or '06.
    Lost contact for a while in '07 after the loss of my grandson.
    Came back to find "Bubba" was someone else and had to "log in".
    The "FirstBubba" was just to separate me and the other "Bubba".
    Oddly, he didn't stay too long.
    GERG, WAMtnhunter (WAM), rock rat, beekeeper, Hoski, sarge01, machinegunner, Sayfu, santa, Moishe are some names that come to mind.
    Anybody remember "David Nichols"? ...blackdawgz?
    Honk, the trail of life is riddled with the bodies of people you knew.

    My 40 through 65 were my best - had some smarts, a little money/freedom, material goods, physical condition . I will not count my age as I don't want to further skew the average that is already established. Although advanced age, I still have good health and do crazy things like ride my motorcycle.

    Believe it or not I am not the only person with the name Gary Devine in New Jersey?

    My brother was a little worried when he signed multiple complaints against the animal rights rights activists for harassment, threats and stalking, during the 2005 bear hunt. I ran my brother's name and there were 23 others in the State of New Jersey with the same name as him. So the Arab activist who said his Arab friends would go to his house and hunt him down, would need to visit twentyfour homes.
    BTW, I wanted to keep it a secret, so what does Pig do? He tells the whole website. Thanks Pig.
    Maybe hindsight you should of said (Hey Gary it's easy to search online and find somebody).
    I need to be careful in the future with hackers and Bama blabbermouths. ?
