It could be a Three-Bob Night, but I don't think it wise to post any more Bob F photos...😉

Have fun, son.

I had a look at this in 1974 with Larry Moore and we jumped the other way.

No thanky!

We're not THAT hard.

What put us off?

Steep, pretty outta shape, easier prey, hard rating, chickensh#t, or any combo thereof.

I think we adjourned to the bowling alley? Maybe that was when we bailed on...hmm

Or did we go back to camp and play 'shoes all day?

There was liquor, too. Bushmills cuz they had no Yukon Jack.

The bottle of YJ we consumed most of on the WAY to JT, and then had a few snorts and that was all we's brought, so the first day we got to HV we had to drive back in to YV and see what they had at the store...the Bushmills.

I remember all-night marathons of Risk among four of us. No climbs stand out. I never appreciated JT like lots seem to do. Familiarity helps.
Maybe been there six times, no more. I like longer climbs anyway.

What put us off? You had to be there, so I just tried to take you there.

The BraveCowboy - did you do that after reading it here? If so, do you see me using his old moniker anywhere? & you spelled it wrong!
Like, it is not a well known to some. To many it is obvious.

Still, most can't figure it out, (a good thing)
I fear that you will have sent him underground again,(not a good thing)
no doubt.

If, all you-all want to help-
Then Think it out before you post a meaningless huRah like this

TBC If you take yours out I will delete this too

I just got a dog as well. Xander is a Pit, Cane Corso mix. Hes 9 weeks old. My wife and I are working a lot with him while hes so small and malleable to keep him comfortable with new people, licking not biting, and not chasing the cats. Weve only had him for a week, but so far so good. Our 9 year old Lab, Tioga, is doing a fantastic job with helping us raise him. Its really remarkable to watch how gentle, yet firm he is with the puppy. Ill be following this thread for sure. Maybe Ill get some advice, and maybe I can share some. Xander is my third puppy in 13 years, so Im no expert, but its not my first rodeo either.


Oh, FFS you just can not be serious The one who can not control himself has a loaded gun dog. I am not sympathetic, I have the addictive propensity, I know it, I deal , it takes strength, it is what makes the make up of a respectable, responsible person, period, no if or but, If you have a problem with X, Y or Z, do not use, any.

While we are all rooting for & cheering, Supporting his sobriety, I am glad he is following chemical intervention & in-treatment care so as not to die.Also my concern stretches to the neglected Pit-Bull mix, & any breeding that might be in the future of the family, to add glue to make a man of him or whatever misguided thing is masquerading as love that has Boy Brandon's wife sticking by her man, not a nice person ? is that what you think when I say the above, life has its way of being very cruel to sighted people who, decide toi be blind

I see we have lots of Music and you can't have MELODRAMA without music by definition, almost.

ST is the nexus of climbing and melodrama.

melodrama
/ˈmeləˌdrmə/
noun
1.
a sensational dramatic piece with exaggerated characters and exciting events intended to appeal to the emotions.

Origin: Melos (Fr) + Drame (Gr) = melodrame > melodrama


Is there royalty in the house again?

Is this the real life?

Is this just fantasy?

Scaramouch, Scaramouch will you do the Fandango?

TRYING TO CLEAR THE DEX

In the wee hours,
when there was a 4:45am call
I couldn't sleep
so I was feeling all 1970
you know when the whole world was
nostalgic
that was when I hit on the sobriety thread too.
There I found that the TBC had used the old moniker-
 that led me to my draft file
I went to it and copy-pasted, Dutch,
when I was done
zap
and now you have fun
so wear wer we?

Actually for Wayno, We had this not that drowned fire crap.
Because there are wayto many things that could go wrong with your fire box sunken under evaporating the water
inches from walls & undressed's
We had kiddlets so that too.
This was all back when we did a ton of wood a year
in a place not so lovingly referred to as Frozendale

edit"

in some sort of weird, it was on this day in 1979, after having been sick sick over Christmas that Marion went to be relived. 1/12/79
was the day Marion M Morrison was found to be suffering from terminal cancer. He was John Wayne and gutted it out, half-ing his stomach took out. It took nine hours to remove and he only found out two days later when he woke up.
