    2 pages on "thanks"?

    Thanks,

    Gut
    These are field trials and the people involved largely don't understand a normal day much less a "normal days hunt".

    If you go to your settings in your "user cp" you can set it to 20 posts per page. IF you do that, it was only one page, until your above post, which is #21, that made it 2 pages!

    How did you do on that Vegas trip man? Did it rain "dollas"?

    There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.

    This thread was started by one of the nicest ladies on this forum--sadly she isn't posting much anymore. Anyway--I think in light of the "Big Flush" and the issue of "oldsters" being pooped on by newbies-its perhaps a good idea to discuss the concept of the elusive and sometime painful "apology".

    I am an expert in apologizing, it comes from years of practice......the result of being rather -amen- excitable. DON'T SAY ANYTHING /PAUL.

    What does the apology accomplish? It shows that you have ------>RESPECT<--------- for the other persons feelings. EVEN if you do not agree with them. This has nothing to do with peanuts either.

    ***side note--demanding someone apologize is a really stupid thing to do and should NEVER happen, this causes a deep seated primal response called "Up yours you sanctimonious jackass". This is BAD!***

    Now I would like to give a demonstration: "I'm sorry you feel I am rude." NO NO NO NO!!!! That takes responsiblity off of your shoulders. Basically you are saying that the other person is a wrong for feeling that you are rude. This is a sneaky fake apology. I know-- I do this to my husband all the time. (Poor Bart)

    The proper apology: "I'm sorry I was rude to you." PHEW---do you all have any idea how much I paid to learn how to properly apologize??? I put my therapists kid through college.

    There is nothing wrong with an RTF smackdown, its a right of passage and honestly sometime we need a V-8 smack in the head. Its also a good idea to not assume familiarity until you have earned it on this here forum.

    Lastly: to Mr. Fallon--I am sorry I once told you that I hoped you fell in a pile of dog poo and had a 400 mile drive home in a heat wave in a broken down car with no ventilation and windows stuck in the up position.

    Helpy Help Person regards,


    PS: I still want a "Bite Me" button.

    Ok, on second thought, I apologize. I can't say I never, because chances are I have at one point or another. I'm sorry....

    Helpy Help Person regards,
    Thank you Nancy and I apologize to the guy in Alabama that I made mad that called me a smart azz with little man syndrome. I was just joshing with you btw I;m kinda fat. And I apologize to the guy in Arkansas who was going on his first hunt and I told him he needed to take the bandana off before he went hunting. And I apologize to the no go guy that I told he might should listen to all the advice given that it could help him in the future. And I apologize to anyone else I have offended. Oh yeah and I apologize for my corny attempts at humor on here. guess that covers it.
    I have learned I need these dogs much more than they need me. Tim Bockmon
