although it's been...over a year! I can't believe it - last log in 4-11-08. Didn't realize it until just now. I didn't expect the date to be like this. This may turn out to be very long but bare with me. Special thanks to crpdeth! Got a few emails asking about me. I had them saved in a folder. Going through my email, they reminded me to come back. I have only just returned to the site and the hobby. Well, not so much hobby but I really wanted to be back here if for no other reason than general discussion and read some kind words for a change. This is the best forum on the net PERIOD. Having left the firearms in the cabinet for a bit of a change, I joined an atv forum. It's alright but it is no where in the class of TFF!! Here, it's more like family which is why was not uncomfortable about finally coming home, so to speak. I anticipate yet another warm welcome and have no doubt that somebody may remember me. I did in fact put a SKS on layaway at the local shop 8 months ago. It has been paid up for 3 months but my forms of ID no longer match and I haven't made time to change everything. I have also kept up with Range Review (I am sorry for your loss). I've been poking around for about an hour reading different posts and it's nice to see how things have evolved. It'll be nice to not be able to start or end a day w/ out the TFF fix. For now: Still married, 3 kids, still working on the house, managed to hang onto the job that I was once whining about loosing (lay off), still working on old Fords (and some other stuff) out in the weather, and still love the smell and recoil. I'm going back to read some more. Hope everybody is feeling like me. Well, maybe not. I'm half sick, nostalgic, but...GLAD TO BE ON TFF!
