First my beloved Alred E. Newman goes, and now I notice others are gone as well. This board just will NOT be the same without Angus's beat-up Avatar! What's going on? Is it just me? Is it my computer? I want Alfred and the beat-up guy back !!!!! :D :D :D

Angus, ever the impressionable youth, thought he'd form his own Fight Club after watching the movie. ;)

This is in fact me a couple of days after trying to pull my eye out with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Long story that I shall not bore you with. Needless to say, I have since been banned from touching tools sharper than a beach ball (difficult, as I am an engineer), and have been told to find a safer hobby.
And please no jokes about the injury. I've heard them all. Just keep an eye out for my questions ;D.
But he hadn't heard them all...

I'm trying to figure out how that story could be made boring... if it were deliberate. If it were an accident then possibly. Even if it droned on for 50 pages, the suspense would still be there lurking in the shadows.

Eye'd been twitchy all night, there was going to be trouble... I could feel it... the two shots of bourbon in my belly had just caught up with the other four. That's when I saw her, looking down her long nose at me. A beauty forged by a master Craftsman. Fortified with liquid nerve I approached, I could tell at a glance she was iron willed and cold as steel. I was undaunted, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. There was no stopping me.
It had been a while since I'd been on the job, but I was fairly sure I could manage well enough. There was a struggle at first, she didn't want to cooperate. I tightened my grip. Fairly certain I had everything under control, I pulled her toward me hard... then blackness.

Try reinstalling the link to your avatar in your Forum Profile settings, it looks like your link might have been wiped, as even your [blue ? box] has disappeared, where as it appears Angus' image server is down. Also try a different image server with a better reliability record. I use PicServer

Sorry guys.....

It appears that avatars have disappeared, and I'm sorry about that. I don't know yet how to fix it, but will look into it.....

Vicky - leaving today or tomorrow for western Michigan, with a stop in Hastings (near G.R.) on the way up.....
