    I am guessing that this Forum is some form of Social Media and as such it is my first and only venture into that world. I have discovered that after a while it is possible to pick up on the character and traits of fellow Forum members .One thing that gets me is that apparently one or two have never been around another group of people (Gender Neutral) say at a Hunting Camp around the fire at night swapping lies and stories and just plain messing with each other. No harm is ever intended and for the most part no offense is taken. I think that the lack of face to face contact has everything to do with that. I guess you could regulate things to the point that nobody shows up here. It could also be that I am just too damn old to be here in the first place. I do enjoy it though. I know for a fact that I am guilty of messing with some of you but it is in the context of the Hunting Camp scenario. Maybe I will figure it all out someday. For those wondering where this Rant comes from just stay current on posts. If I stray too far from the rules of engagement I am sure a former 225 pound Police Officer will set me straight. See there I go again.

    Question is, who is the prez of the cranky old man club? If I ran, I bet I would get a few votes for being the crankiest.

    "Dash or flamboyance in style and action"

    That works for me.The other meaning works for me as well.

    "an ornamental tuft (as of feathers) especially on a helmet"

    I always did think a Ostrich Plume would look great on A Marine Corps Cover.:mrgreen:

    You would probably find a peacock feather more fitting.

    I got to have me one of them. You mind sharing where I might get one?
    My wife said no way. I said yes. It is a tie. I have the deciding vote in a tie. I just talk big. If I find one I will put it on the barn door.

    Sounds like some of you guys have lost your panache. And maybe your ornamental tuft also! :lol:
