Default Sorry Reggie, but I had to turn you down ! LOL

So this morning I do the usual mandatory check in with OSO and Facebook. Well what do you know but there is a Facebook request from Reggie Fountain to be my "friend" ! First thought was, well that is cool. As I thought about it and checked his limited profile, there was enough doubt that I clicked "ignore" rather than "accept request". 46 of my common FB friends are his friend. It has played on my mind since. Could it be an impostor ? I do know Reggie 3 is legitimately on FB. It recall that in one of the Sinking Sunken threads someone had commented about a poser RF on Facebook. Any way to know for sure ?

I think it is kind of a company/fan page done as a personal one, the contact info is [email protected] so it is an employee that set up the page.

Thanks. Good to know it was a legitimate request. Can't be too careful these days it seems.

Thanks, Lil Reggie. Facebook can be a great marketing vehicle and many in the marine industry are using it as well. All the best to the Fountain family and Fountain Powerboats.

Funny. I bumped into Reggie. (the original lol) on Wednesday, just off of 95, coming back from Innovation. I stopped for a quick pit stop at a Citgo station, and there he was, sitting in the passanger side in a black benz. I took a second look, to make sure, I said hello (I known Reggie since the late 80's) talked a bit, then I just had to take care of my liquid release requirements. He was gong to meet with the Navy Seals.

Or you could actually verbally speak with the person, or is that just a crazy suggestion. It would probably elimanate imposters. Just a thought. Facebook, myspace,------ say hello to my 12 year old niece, that's who this garbage was intended for. Adults tweeting, going on cheating.com,aahh, I mean facebook. Bogus. Just kidding folks. Godspeed
