When does one officially become the "old guard?"


Going bald also qualifies.
If your ears noticeably perk up when a Viagra commercial comes on, that counts.
If you get a grandchild to set up your computer system, you achieve brevet rank in the Old Guard.
If you can remember something that happened thirty years ago as though it was yesterday, but can't remember what you had for breakfast yesterday, you may achieve Feldmarchal's rank in the Old Guard.
If you're a guy but buy products from Hanes, you might be Old Guard.




Your on the wrong thread Lizard. Your describing the Geezer Thread. And you forgot the most important part , you yell "get off my lawn you punk kids!" while brandishing a shot gun!



Well, that qualifies you to be in an Old Guard horse battery.

Tom, you edited your post. We all make mistakes, but you have corrected yours. I'm just asking, whose standards have been bared and were they arrested for it?

I really don't understand why it says 'edited'.

It depends on what your definition of arrested is - is, right?

I've never been caught..er uh, arrested for baring. Barring - maybe.

Ross (crsutton) needs to remain quiet. In a post last week, he revealed that he's 6'3". We already knew he wears Birkenstocks, drives vintage '70s vehicles, and enjoys having big kitty cats sit in his lap. I can't get the image of him driving down a beach drive with the top down, his head towering above the windshield, "Puff the Magic Dragon" blaring on the radio. He's either Beetlejuice or Tiny Tim.

Hey now...right here you know!

Just trying to get life settled down enough to devote time to the game. Have re-started some Mod work so that is a good first step. As I stated in my AAR last week---stay TUNED!

There's a problem with these things? That sounds boringly normal for this area.

Canoerebel lives in NW Georgia, where men wearing Birkenstocks and driving old Volvos is a capital offense. It's one reason I relocated to the PNW.


Full disclosure: I never liked Birkenstocks (or any sandals for that matter) and I prefer old Subarus to Volvos...

Just for the heck of it , let's list some of the veteran players that we've had disappear in recent years. Maybe if we mention their names 3 times , they'll reappear. I'd like to start with the 1st player to help me out on this forum. Terminus, Terminus, where art thou Terminus?
warspite1

Well I would like to say Chickenboy, Chickenboy, Chickenboy. He may have come from Minsoda, he may not have been the sharpest tool in the box, and he may have had personal body odour issues, but despite all that, I miss the dude.



Ugh. Again with that pidgin Brit-speak of yours. Remember, us Texans don't have body odour issues. We have body odor issues. Everything's big in Texas.
warspite1

It worked!

Seriously dude, its really good to see you back. Hope all is well with you and yours.

Your thoughtful input and humour have been missed both here and on the General Discussion Forum.

I have a friend who lives in the outermost burbs of Atlanta, he wants to move here so badly even though houses cost 3 times as much here.

I've never been a fan of Birkenstocks either, my go to pair of shoes are made by Redwing. My SO loves Subarus, she gave her old 96 to her ex when she got a 2013. She calls it the quintessential NW car.

I drove a 92 Buick I bought new until a few months ago. Everybody thought I was weird, but it was a great car. Still runs great, but I needed something newer for roadtrips to California.

It just tolled for me - and told me my baked potato should be ready on the BBQ.

Nah, not a whole steer, but...

A proper meal consists of a baked potato main course with three sides: Brisket, Ribs and Ribeye.

You do understand that a baked (russet) potato needs its own weight in butter plus any sight of it must be blocked with ground black pepper and there must be dollops of sour cream on top?

Pretty sure he's posted to Terminus' Facebook page within the last few months.

Around here, there is a BBQ place that actually puts shredded brisket on the potato as a topping. True story.

For me personally, its butter, cheese, sour cream and bacon bits. Along with all the appropriate meat sides.

Edit: Oh, I also forgot to include the jalapeno peppers stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped with bacon. One has to have an appropriate appetizer.

Ouch! I go to the beach for a few weeks only to find out that Canoerebel has stooped to "Trump like" slander to besmirch my good name and reputation. Next thing I know and he will be complaining about my big bottom. I would be terribly offended but so much of what he said is true. I am 6'3", drive a Volvo and my cat is sitting on my lap as I type. The Birkenstock thing is a bit out of line since I lean towards Merrills but that is a small matter.

The issue as I see it is the inherent inferiority complex that people from North Georgia have. The man is obviously venting to cover up his own defects. Understandable, as being from Georgia I know only too well how unique those hill folk can be. In fact it is a little known fact that North Georgia is one of the few places where you can divorce your wife and still see her at your family reunion.....
