    I was just wondering the same thing. The porch doesn't seem the same without him.

    We've had a few members on hiatus lately. I hope they're all doing well and can catch a break to drop in here soon.

    Jake does that sometimes. Usually because his life gets real busy. His cutlery knowledge is detailed and I'm always glad when he stops by.

    Dogs just make life better. These are my closest buddies. I like most dogs more than I like most people, and if my dogs don't trust you, I won't trust you.

    Bella and Gandalf are my wife's dogs, but if she's not available, I become quite popular. :rolleyes: Here they are with an Opignel:

    Pretty pups, great names. Is that a French Poodle hanging out with a Yorkie?

    One of ours--the big one--is more of my wife's. She takes her on 5 or 6 mile runs! I can't keep up with them. But I'm popular with all the pets (one cat too): I'm the "food guy"!

    That hat Billy Jack wore looks like it would shed rainwater - that's definitely a plus. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Words of wisdom, Shawn. :thumbsup::cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Vince. :) Your dogs (well, all the dogs that appeared here today) look like champs, but quite a size difference for your pair; do they get along OK?

    Bella is a toy poodle, but Gandalf is a Shih-Tzu/Pomeranian mix. Bella's half-sister (same mother) Stella used to hang out with them, too, but we had to put her down last March. I'm the morning "food guy" for the survivors, but I don't make a meal like Mammy does, with vegetables and chicken stock in addition to the canned food and kibble I provide for breakfast.
    Here's a pic of dear, departed Stella when she still had eyes:

    They get along tolerably well, I suppose. The big one, Lexi, is a sweetheart, and always wants to play. Sometimes the small one, Mini, growls and snaps at her. Lexi has destroyed several of Mini's toys, so we have to keep an eye on her. She loves chewing up things. Bought a tough tire chew toy for Lexi, and she demolished it in minutes! Strong jaws and sharp teeth.

    Sorry about Stella. I remember you telling us about that a few months ago. We lost one last month (Italian Greyhound). Just old age. He asked to go in the back yard and lay down for the last time. Maybe that's how I'll go.

    Not a Sea Knight. It had two rotors.
    Looks like a Super Stallion to me.

    That's it, I do believe your right. Really neat seeing them cruise up and down the beach. They were in formations of twos and threes. Then a lone upgrade version of the huey flew around banking and turning over the bay. Then a formation of 4 flew down the beach. I kept hoping they'd do some passes in the cobras, but didn't see any this time. Several times the flew by pretty low,those big choppers are always impressive to me.

    Sea Kings ?
    I saw one at the fleet air arm show at HMAS Albatross base Nowra NSW.
    Like a flying truck.
    Massive....although it was several years ago.
    They put a SeaHawk ..the maritime rescue version of the BlackHawk through its paces...what a beast.

    I hope you'll have a lawn chair.

    I'd like to transmute my matter directly into energy. Maybe I should put on my alchemist's hat and get cracking.

    I suppose Carlos Castaneda's being known to be dead means that he failed to immolate himself in "the fire from within".
