Thanks Dave! :)

Another cool thing Butch did was sometimes give people an avatar pic for whatever reason. I know it pissed some people off, but the avatar pic I have to this day is one Butch gave me. It's somehow made it over from the different forum changes.

I plan to be around more. I've missed you guys a lot. 💗

Thank You Burnham. The wife and I are boxing up all of our crap to move for the final time, and I stumbled on to an old brass falling dog for a Homelite Zip that you gave to me eons ago. It was one of the things that prompted me back here.

I've been catching up on some reading Ger', and there is still a lot more to catch up on. Good to see you again my friend.

Stephen, I do post a lot of junk on the ol FB and now Instagram. But it's not the same as being part of a big ol' group like this. :)

Great to read you again Gary!

Your ‘return’ reminds me of the legend in our town of Edgar Alan Poe putting a curse on our local watering hole that ‘anyone entering would be cursed to always return’. We should carry you back in with a ‘hero’s welcome’:


“The Deer Park Tavern
has been a Landmark in Newark since 1851. Originally, the St. Patrick's Inn had stood in its place since 1747. Among the many travelers that used the Inn as a resting place were Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon. With their team of surveyors, the boundary between Pennsylvania and Maryland was established and became famous as a line of demarcation between free and slave states.

During the American Revolution, soldiers stayed at the St. Patrick's Inn and it is stated that George Washington spent a night. On December 23, 1843, Edgar Allan Poe lectured at the Newark Academy. As he was attempting to descend from a carriage at the Inn, he was reputed to have fallen in the mud and was so upset that he put a curse on the building. "A curse upon this place! All who enter shall have to return!" Patrons found this so amusing that they carried Poe into the tavern with a hero's welcome”
