    What do you think? Is this forum made up of grumpy old men, sitting on the porch, armed with shotguns, telling kids to keep off the lawn or happy optimists too happy to report their joy.

    Maybe. I'm a grumpy old man, sitting at work, 9mm in my truck, telling everyone to stay the hell out of my office.

    I also happen to beleive that being older also allows us to appreciate the things we had "back in the good ol' days" over what younger generations have.

    Case in point:

    Isn't it sad that this generation is going to have Justin Beiber as their Ozzy or Robert Plant or Freddie Mercury? :(

    My lawn and my neighbor's to the west is a right good size hunk of turf. It seems all the neighborhood kids think this is their football field. Dave isn't home when they're playing, but I am. I just ask them to be mindful of the plants, trees and windows. Hell.... I was a kid once !!

    I'm not grumpy, just complex.
    I come from pure German stock raised in the bitter cold of the north. We tend to be somewhat sharp in response, not necessarily because we are a$$holes, but direct and to the point.
    I am lucky that I also have a wry humor, (Thanks Rowan Atkinson and John Cleese!) so on occasion I can blunt my manner with wit.

    nothing like a few 12 gauge rounds loaded with rock salt to persuade people to leave you the F alone.

    Yep, had a backside busted by rocksalt from a rancher's 410 once...me and my buddies were sitting in the orange trees eating oranges, which was a nice way to spend a hot summer afternoon.

    The rancher didn't think so...
