New Moderator in town!

While we are all saddened by the passing of Dave McCracken, life still goes on.

The Staff at TFL would like you all to give hogdogs a hearty welcome, as the new moderator of this forum.

Welcome, Brent, and congratulations. You have some big shoes to fill, but at least you paid attention to the guru for long enough to have a real start on knowing the job. Glad to have you in that chair,

Lee

I will always be the down to earth (I done heard what happens when you make wings and try to fly to the sun) redneck feller...

One nice thing about this spot to moderate is it is generally quite civil and not a bunch of off topic stuff to worry with as some of the sections of TFL...

Granted... Those of us who have used this section for more than a few months or a year realize the zombie gun threads and other such nonsense DOES reoccur on an almost predictable schedule

Right now we seem to be in an appreciated slump which will give me time to settle in and get used to this...

Congrats.......just make sure to belittle the mall ninjas on a regular basis...oh and remind people that a shotgun doesn't need 12 different battery powered attachments to function.

They forget to inform you of having to keep Staff supplied with Shiner Bock year round.

So basically you are in the hole from the get-go. *grin*

Sending best, and let me know if I can be of any assistance.
