I don’t want to give the impression that I’m whining but… a while back I punched back at some of Hanks crude remarks. He decided to throw me some pretty profane PMs. I really didn’t take them all that seriously but fact is, Hank has a soft side… a weakness. But all is good. I like Hank. He’s fun to poke at. But that's what I like about you and others I've met on here... you're honest people that give others an honest chance to be friends; even if at a small level.Why - no. No, I haven't.
Which is interesting, considering Hank and I were not "friendly" here on the forums in the past. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Truth be told, I (along with other forumites) met him IRL at the Tales 'N Ales BBQ fest over in Charles Co a couple of years ago. (3?) He had a booth there for his business. As I recall, it was actually *my* idea to go introduce ourselves, so the Foxhound and I and a couple others went over and introduced ourselves. He was very nice. We also met Kelb and she was as sweet as can be. We even patronized his busines and bought some cool stuff.
So...yeah. Go figure!
I don’t doubt that most of the folks that put up this ‘tough guy’ front are actually pretty nice. I don’t understand the façade. I’m sure there are a thousand reasons why people don’t want you to know who they really are in these situations. You really have to take much of what is posted on here with a grain of salt. We have far more important things going in our lives than to have this chew us up.
