    Have you ever noticed how the moderators save us from ourselves? No gruesome details, but on more than several occasions the moderators have closed a thread before I said too much. It's like shy people at the microphone who suddenly can't stop talking. Thanks mods, present and past.

    I hate closing threads, really, I do. When I became a mod for the first time, one of the mods told me 'whenever you don't know what to do, just think what Kevin (owner) would have done'. I think it was Michael aka Cosmic who told me that, maybe not. And that really makes my job easier. The worst part of being a mod is, sometimes you have to stay out of the fun. You see other kids running and playing outside, but you have to stay inside and study. By the way, I don't see a reason to close this one. I am also IBTL if there is going to be one

    'whenever you don't know what to do, just think what Kevin (owner) would have done'.

    That's easy...Kevin's smart enough to just stay out of it all and let the Mods deal with us hooligans.

    What you Mods need are sub-Mods to delegate the dirty work to.

    After a while you develop spidey-mod sense......
    When I think "uh-oh", a closure is usually imminent.
    And, like Javan just said, it's not something I enjoy doing.

    We're more like rockers. Here's Javan and I, after a tough day of modding, out on a run, helping a stranded motorist. Always helping.

    A David Mann painting. Thanks, Al.

    I grew up on those, as the Easyrider centerfolds.

    I'd be too preoccupied, mind-wandering, to do a good job. I'd miss at least half the calls. I have a cat like that, Fred, who forgets he's scratching his ear and leaves his hind paw in the air. He even gets distracted when I put down his food sometimes. I sympathize with him a lot. I had many career ambitions as a kid, from stand-up comic to minister and many others, but law enforcement was never one of them.

    Wouldn't mean putting on a snazzy jacket and tie and getting drinks and dinner down the street?

    I had the one where the ghost cowboy is riding his horse alongside the biker, a tapestry, hanging in my bedroom. I wish I still had that.

    Ghost Rider is a classic,

    I used to have Sunset Boulevard hanging in my barracks room.

    I was going to post images but I think his estate might object and, unfortunately, he slid a few racist symbols in.

    Actually, he is the one who jumps on those enigmatic/weird threads when we are hesitant.

    Well, that explains a lot. I did mean snazzy jacket a ties, ha ha. I guess I should have been more explicit. That explains why things were getting fixed around here while I was out trying on bow ties and Vuitton alligator men's shoes.

    I met an old gent in a physical rehab facility who was busted for driving his electric wheelchair too fast and consigned to a non-motorized chair. He was a former car salesman, and later a big truck salesman, and a pipe smoker who favored Prince Albert. I bought him a MM cob and then a briar pipe, later realizing that staff or family had probably confiscated his pipes. He had some lapses in thought, but was a good conversationalist once he got rolling.
