Yipes! Now I'M a Senior Member?


June 28, 2003, 02:24 PM
Just noticed a recent post of mine listing me as a Senior Member. Do I want to be a member of any board that would have me as a Senior Member?:D

You've got a long ways to go to catch up with Skunk,Blackhawk,10-Ring, or Tamara,though... :D

I thought I was so gosh darn cool when I turned into a senior member. Then I realized that Skunk has an average of 18 posts a day.

:what: :uhoh:

PS: This is gonna get moved or closed real quick.

I think I deserve a new gun.

I think I made senior member the second day I was here...

I don't have a lot to say, but I say it frequently! :D

Oh, and Balrog?

Catch me if you can... :neener:

Some people just age faster than others! It is not their fault. Why should it be highlighted?:neener:

Mike's just semi-retired and writes for a living. Skunk has no life :neener:


June 28, 2003, 03:48 PM
It's not Balrog!

June 28, 2003, 03:59 PM
Woo Wee 100 for me!

No, I work full-time for a living.

In fact, I'm working on a hot project right now.

Nice overtime. It's going to allow me to pay for my 28 gauge shotgun that I've been wanting.

What a weird way to bump up post counts.

June 28, 2003, 04:43 PM
I've seen wierder ways to bump up post counts.:scrutiny:

June 28, 2003, 04:46 PM
Like what? Pray tell.:rolleyes:

June 28, 2003, 04:55 PM

You know, this is fun as long as it lasts.

be advised that I'm stealing your signature line for use in future gun-control debates; it just frames the issue too darn clearly.

June 28, 2003, 07:50 PM
I believe I'll add another one to mine while I'm here!:D :neener:

Until right now, I had no idea what my post count was.

The place is addicting. When the TFL website shut down, I nearly panicked. Now I have more postings on THR in less time.

I'm glad to hear someone else say that, Brad!

I got on one morning at work, started reading all of these weepy messages and actually wondered if something had happened to Rich!

Then I found Rich's announcement, read it, and at the end of it I realized I was hyperventilating! :eek:

Are you kiddin' me?!?!? This thread hasn't been locked down yet?:scrutiny:

Hey, even moderators take the evening off once in awhile...

Amen Mike Irwin,

I loved the TFL. The THR seems to continue that tradition. I am a widower, joined TFL just before my wife passed, and have found this whole culture to be a life saver for me. The comraderie of not just this forum, but the whole club feel of shooting within the local ranges, dealers, and friends has been such a comfort for me.

Once I made a transgression on TFL, I think I used the F word during a posting about an Illinois liberal election result last November, and Rich and I emailed, and he gave me a second chance.

That is what I am talking about. All the great folks here, Oleg, Skunk, Art, Preacherman, the Runt, and Tamara, so many others, are like a sort of second family. They like to remain annonymous, but to us posters, and all the THR members, we are sort of a family.

I travel to Florida once or twice a year, from the droll prairie of Illinois, and I think it would really be cool to have dinner with the delightful THR Tennessee clan sometime when passing through.

It is nice to realize sometimes that I am not a lone wolf regarding these things. Thanks Mike.

Thanks for posting that -- it's a very positive note on which to close the thread.

Forgive me, all. You knew it was coming. :D
