Ok, guess I’ll get my newbie rant on........
I was introduced to this site some time ago, by a coworker/fellow enthusiast, and lurked. I enjoyed the posts, the opinions and the *****ing, but felt too much of an outsider to participate.
Things occurred in my microscopic world (completely outside the dumpster fire our borderless country has devolved into, which does not help a bit!) that drove me to rethink what I felt I needed to hold onto.
I’ve decided I’m not playing the game, chasing the pendulum as it swings left and right..... I need to simplify, and that means turning some cherished things loose.
I felt this was a good place to start, having known people who had good experiences with members here, thinking the readers here might appreciate what I have decided to sell.
I’m not looking to capitalize on the current frenzy, nor am I giving anything away, but I do have some very nice things that need new homes so I can focus more on what remains important to me.
I was fortunate to have encountered panhandleglocker on my first contact, he was more than patient with me stumbling through a really bad and awkward day......
I truthfully wanted to see how the contact went, if the classified listing went well, etc. before I committed to “supporting” with paid membership (I will likely need more than the three free listings) to meet my objectives. If it takes paying ten bucks to make people think I’m worthy of their time, so be it, but I would assume most folks here have lived long enough to get a feel for the motives of others posting here.
Perhaps when I get closer to my goals I will be able to put more time on this keyboard, but until then I will do what I can. I’d hope the senior/seasoned members here can endure us newbies as we stumble along.....
As far as President O’Harris (or anyone else) kicking my door in to take my evil inanimate magazines, they will be “greeted” without haste. I know I will not likely survive, but I don’t intend to go alone.....
See folks even one worthy post goes along way, not that there isn't silver tonged cons out there but this is what OSA used to be with nearly every new member.....and not just a guy that only uses the restroom at the McDonald's on the turnpike once a week. (Analogy font on)
