    Exactly. I have noticed some new guys in here in the last week or three.

    If you are in this category (I am sure you know whom you are, and if you wish to keep posting)....you will be called out on it, then refer to OP's first post. You need to give your thoughts on a certain topic......this is non-negotiable.

    Also, we have strict rules in this thread and they are enforced....we have mods on payroll :wink: and who are regulars in here as well.

    May we suggest going back and perusing through to see how we all get along. Most of us that are regular posters (note that there are very few that arent regular posters) have been in here for many years and we are afforded certain.....leeway, if you will.

    We like our thread, we all get along very well and many of us are friends outside of TW. While we all post in other threads this one is most certainly NOT them.

    Please respect our little sanctuary away from the usual TW'ness of all the other threads.

    *sigh*

    After reading 4717 pages, I finally found that I am required to take a test so to speak. Sadly I started at this page and worked backwards. Guess it’s good that this 40 y/o with the medical condition of a 60 y/o is retired.

    So first thing I did after finding out what this “test” was, is to fill my gas tank and scour the country side. I looked far and wide but even my vortex spotting scope wasn’t up to the task.

    So leaving the sanctuary of my capable Tacoma, (I mean it’s TW, the story HAS to include it!) I continued on foot. The rain as hard and journey long. I climbed up a mountain through 12’ of snow and climbed back down into the valley (all things are up hill both ways).

    In the valley I came to a cabin, tired from my hike I decided to take a rest. There was one bed that was far to large, then another that was far to small. Finally found one that seemed about right, only to find a fucking wolf in the bed?! Well with that I left, I’m not going to sleep in a bed that allows a filthy wolf under the covers!

    I continued down the trail, it was quite easy to follow its golden hue... I came across this weird boy flying around and he asked what I was looking for. I told him to mind his own damn business and continued on. When I finally got to glade I was looking for I took my rifle off my shoulder. I lowered the legs on my bipod, settled into the prone... took out my range finder gauged the distance. Then I very slowly and very deliberately lined up my shot. The explosion cause birds to take to the air and animals to run, but I wasn’t worried, my shot was true. I stood back up, shouldered my rifle and walked down. I looked over the body, then lowered the vial and let the beasts tears fill the glass container. As I left, I turned and bit fair well... giving Aslan my thanks for his life.

    When I finally got home I poured the tears into my feeder and sat on the porch with a glass of lemon aid. When the local children seen the elusive hummingbirds arrive they ran to watch. I stood up, shouldered my shotgun and told them to get off my damn lawn.

    The thing I like most about hummingbirds is that in Montana, they only drink fucking lion tears.

    Ok, I'll jump in on it.
    The wife is pissed. I'm offshore for another week and I didn't have time to spray the flower beds for spiders before I let. Well you would know it, she sent me a text saying that we had a humming bird stuck in a spider web. It had been drained of its fluids. I asked her to send me a picture and she said no way she was going by that spider web if the spider was big enough to eat a bird. I guess I'll be in the dog house as soon as I get back home. I f..king hate those Banana spiders. Evil bastards.
