So it appears that it has been awhile since I graced the welcoming confines of the Motley Moose. Almost a year to be exact, amazing how time flies when you are out trying to win an election :)

So in that year what has happened? Well OFA sucked up an awful lot of time until late spring '12 and then I just needed a break and took the summer off.  Did a lot of bike riding, went over to Maine and did the Lobster Ride and Roll.

Went from that to the operating table to get my rotator cuff repaired. Which pretty much destroyed the rest of my summer :) Don't ask how I tore my cuff it is too embarrassing.

As soon as Fall rolled around and I could drive a stick again I was back volunteering with OFA, pounding the phones and knocking on doors.

And now? Working on the gun issue.

So what have I missed?

Oh sure I asked you not to ask (2.00 / 23)
and the first thing you do is ask. Jeez

It was something of a Tim The Tool Man Taylor moment. Trying to start a chain saw in order to cut up an old couch so I could get it out the door. The reason it wouldn't start? I hadn't pulled the ON  lever fully into the ON position.

You're right, you shouldn't talk about that... (2.00 / 21)
You realize couches have metal and things in them?

of course, I shouldn't talk much...

The future is unwritten


Well thanks (2.00 / 18)

What's that, a postage stamp?!?! (2.00 / 20)
You have to do better than that, you look like Lilliputian.

Funny, your name came up in another thread like five minutes ago.

Good to see your face (or what I can make out of it)!

I guess we are no longer attempting to be on our best behavior (2.00 / 17)
around the new "neighbors?"

Please oh please?!  I can't hold the crass in much longer.

[ Parent ]
You know? I resisted talking about (2.00 / 15)
boots because Peter would have made some comment about "rubbers" and it would go down hill from there.

And here you stand, pantless.

For the love of god, at least be careful with those pinking sheers...

[ Parent ]
shears (2.00 / 2)
pinking shears do the zig-zag cutting.

sheers are like curtains . . . or lingerie . . . ;-)

Pants? (2.00 / 13)
I won't name names or anything but someone was going the full monty as far back as April 2009.

Yes, but this is fog we are talking about. (2.00 / 10)
The visual, the tattos, the scars from broken guitar strings/ancient stone tools/car parts and rabid goats...

Some of us are better covered (preferably under heavy canvas).

HI! i recall you from (2.00 / 24)
the place that shall not be named.  good to seeya!

Does the morgue wagon come with the job?

Good to see you back! n/t (2.00 / 20)


Come to me in my dreams, and then
By day I shall be well again!
For so the night will more than pay
The hopeless longing of the day.


Good to see you here. As you might be (2.00 / 20)
able to discern, there are alot of new, yet familiar, members here.  The Moose are on the loose!

I am for the individual over government, government over big business and the environment over all. -- William O. Douglas

Yay! (2.00 / 19)
Great to see ya 'round these parts again. You are the Moose's 'one degree of separation' to President Obama! /grin

I am KING of the 'Tim the Toolman Taylor' moments...thankfully, I also have the luck the Irish (despite not being Irish) and have, thus far, avoided anything worse than a few broken bones and stitches. The only things permanent are the scars.

Welcome back!

Hmmm (2.00 / 17)
I'll have to figure what Flickr is doing to the images

I was going to say "I can barely see it" but then...

Same here - and I'm really not interested in opening a Yahoo acct. (2.00 / 6)
as much as I'd love to see a picture of you in the WH.

Welcome back (2.00 / 7)
Well, being a n00b I honestly didn't know you were gone as I never knew you were here, but I remember you kinda sorta from a site of a different color.

Good to see ya. Bunch of us invaders showed up recently, kind of like a termite infestation but please don't call the exterminator, kthxbai.

Enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war.

Barack Obama 1/21/2013


I wouldn't say "termites" as such, (2.00 / 6)
more like Killer Bees. :~)
