Yeah where's the thread on the 9 St. Louis tornadoes the other night?? Gimme a break the Ok tornadoes were horrific, horrible and heartbreaking things i dont wanna think about when I come to pondboss to talk PONDS I don't pay much attention to any post not fish or pond related and I'm sure I'm not the only one..

It's a tragic event and there's many everyday are we gonna start acknowledgeing these every day because wed be overwhelmed..

Sorry to seem insensitive but I don't think this is the place for it..


I believe in catch and release. I catch then release to the grease..

I've never been a part of, or experienced, a more caring, compassionate and family oriented coast-to-coast forum anything, as I have here on PB.

Disagreements? Sure.
Differences of opinion? Sure

Lack of compassion, judgemental, "cliquey", uncaring? Not in the slightest!

Sarcasm, wit, light-hearted & funny? Yes, and I hope it continues.

As a newbie I may not have a lot to contribute and at some point I'm sure someone will respond to one of my posts stating "Really Keith? That's about one of the dumbest things I've ever heard." It's then I will know I've been accepted as part of the PB family wink

(BTW, that doesn't have to be seen as an open invitation grin)

There are no dumb questions on PB only people who want to learn. We all started naked and ignorant at birth and someone showed us the ropes !

I appreciate that Eric but that doesn't mean I haven't, or won't DO something dumb (as I'm sure we all have) and I think I'm capable on a daily basis, yet it's even more fun when someone else points it out!

EX: I was mowing along my drive which is 200 yds long, with my noise-blocking-hearing-protector-radio-headphones, jamming away to Ozark Mountain Daredevil's "If you wanna get to heaven". I had made two full passes going on the third when it finally donned on me that the blade was not engaged.

Can't help but just stop and laugh at that point. It's what makes life fun!

Nice, lovin'! I've done similar with my brush hog and also my riding mower - blades were engaged but not lowered into place so no joy on the grass cutting! The great thing is that's one part of life that never bothers me - I just get to start over and spend a little more time at my farm!

Seriously?!?

I don't know you Bob so I assume you are just blowing off steam. But the as of this morning the "Damn Thieves" thread had 50 views and 1,166 views. The "Heart Felt Prayers" thread had 59 posts and 1,393 views. So how is the Damn Thieves thread "viral" compared to the Heart Felt Prayers thread.

Every time I hear about tragic events in areas of the country I think about my Pond Boss brethren. Flooding occurs in Texas and I wonder if George, Bob Lusk, Dave D, and all of my Texan Pond Boss friends are doing. Nebraska brings to mind TJ and Bruce and Omaha. Virtually every event makes me wonder how my Pond Boss friends are coping.

But ask, just ask for any type of help and the Pond Boss army comes running. Heck you don't even have to ask and people offer help and support.

The "Good Old Boy" club does exist. All you have to do to join is participate. Everyone is granted free membership. Even someone as demented as me.

And I can tell you from personal experience, if you need a helping hand, or just emotional support it is extended to you from this family of Pond Meisters. The folks here are some of the greatest folks I've ever met in my 55 years on this on this planet. If your opinion is that they don't care then you are sadly mistaken.

jhap, thanks for saving me a lot of typing.

Okie Bob, I'm sorry for the loses of life in your state (seriously). Looting happens whenever there is a chance... But I think you're a little out of line attacking the Pond Boss community just based on few responses to your thread.

We've got your "back" buddy!!!

I hope you respond after reading all of these posts.

Wow Lovnlivin you are right.

Jamming to "Ozark Mountain Daredevils" is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard.

Okie...we all understand the frustrations you feel from the devastations near you. Many of us here lived through similar and want to lash out when we feel helpless. I, like jhap, George, and others here, KNOW that when the pondmeisters are with you, you are never helpless.

Okie, simply posting here long ago made you part of the "good ole boy" club...there are also good ole women here....lol

I think many of us were distracted with family things Memorial Day weekend and the thread died. I honestly don't remember if I got on the forum when thread was active. I definitely never forgot the meaning of holiday. The tornados never left my mind neither. Your venting definitely shows how muck care and that's awesome. I have used your first hand advice while setting my shelter and I know the hurt and devastation they can cause from first hand experience helping family friends that have been hit directly less than 10 miles from house. Looking forward to hearing more good advice from you. I almost set my shelter in wrong spot before heading your advice. You definitely have a lot to contribute to forum. Look forward to hearing from you again. That my 2 Cents for what's its worth.

Being able to look bad things that happen to you in the eye and reply with humor is indeed a gift. It lifts the spirit and helps ensure that hope and trust overcome fear.

Sorry you feel that way bob!!! A lot of us were out paying our respects to family and friends who died for us. If you want to take that attitude, thats up to you. But you will not make me feel guilty for not responding to your thread on Memorial(sp) day.

Last post for me on this topic........And believe it or not BOB, we care!!!

Bob,
I am unsure what you were hoping for with this thread, but as you can see, we care about our families including our pondboss family. Warts and all, we care. If you choose to leave the family, that is okay, but its your choice. We will miss you, but we will go on, and the pondboss family will continue to grow, because that is what we do.

Know this before you go; if you expect us to pick you up when life knocks you down we might not notice your down, but if you ask us to help you up, we will probably trip over other pondboss members trying to get to you to help. That is just how it works. Some of us have reached out and become closer friends in real life, me personally, I have friends from six or seven states that I have met because of PondBoss. These people would not be in my life without Pondboss. I am extremely grateful for all Pondboss has done for me and the friends I have met because of this place. You can choose to reach out and friend people or you can go your own way, its your choice. One of the best things about pondboss is, there is no waiting, and it is always open.

The choice is yours.
