Anyone who has ever been to the uncensored section on this site ( that would be ALL of you) has seen a few pics by several people and for sure gone "uhhhhhh that doesn't look ummmm 18+ " it was for that reason that I didn't post pics of my ex because when we first met she looked like she was 17 when she was really 21. People are people and they will throw out there opinions to see if there are any others with the same or maybe they just want to stir the pot.
Anyhow, where the hell is Ed Cozzi, I like that guy and his stories.

Leaves a helluva lot more to talk about that I actually give a sh!t about.
And just like the corner bar, some are great regulars you look forward to running into, some are azzholes. In your book, I could be either of the two, and I'm OK with that. In my book you could be either of the two as well.
None the less, we all love performance boating. But, life is more than just boats, and alot goes on in this world. It's good that we can talk about things not boat related with someone that at least agrees with you on one thing - boating.

.02 - charge it to my next membership renewal...
I like the way you guys think.

I've been saying the same thing for a long time. OSO reminds me of a favorite dockside bar. We gather as boaters, maybe on a poker run stop, for the simple reason that we are all boaters, but there's so much more than that. We share a common bond, in the way we go about the day, BS about our boats and a great day on the water, but there's a tremendous amount of "other" things that we have in common. Undoubtedly, while sitting on the dockside bar, someone will say "did you hear about so and so" or "you won't believe this sht" or "I heard a great joke..." We're friends, family, barmates, coworkers, and fellow boaters all at the same time.

I'm sure he has had enough to deal with in the mess and for us to stand in judgement is wrong. I personally hope that all turns out well for him and he can continue on with his life as best he can, with or without OSO
Well, there is some good news to hear about Troutly!!!!!

blue thunder,

Thanks for the good news on Kook's friend. I followed his situation and was hoping to hear something good.

You can't possibly not see that that it is that there is a good point.

In all seriousness. You could get a masters in sociology with stuff like that.

Folks sometimes really disappoint me, and others wonder why the old time OSO with widespread participation of very well respected members has faded. Sometimes I wonder when we will all grow up and not feel life is still an episode of 90210. I was just reading an email on this subject from an old friend here on OSO (you know who you are) and talking with another new friend also on OSO that I am very close to, and realized the loss of kinship that I enjoyed with many, which has now become few.

Fund, sorry I missed you last weekend. Wound up hooking up with GlassDave - good time, great guy.
We'll hook up next time, or maybe at the boat show when the water is too hard to run

That's ok. I ended up busy and looked at your phone number and felt guilty for not calling. Glad that you hooked up with Dave. He's runs with a bunch of good dudes.

I will give you a ring and give you an alternative method to contact me. For reasons that Sydwayz has pointed out... I have taken it off forum mostly.

This thread just caught my interest for obvious reasons.

I like ya Sydwayz... but the Metal Racing guy did make a good point.
