This thread and the interest in meeting others shown makes me wonder if a new forum titled something like "meet-ups" would be useful. Individuals could start threads for their location there.

.... and the term "I swing both ways" has more to do with gravity than sexual orientation.

LOL, I have a knack for innocently saying things and others warping them into the gutter!

That's alright, they can buy me a beer when we "meet-up" someday.

Considering that ESRBob, BUM, and I have had lunch with you and we know how old you are, your eager anticipation of this new board feature is a bit disturbing!

Nice pics, guys. It is nice to be able to put a face to the name. Would be nice to have a "early retirement forum" reunion sometime. I am afraid that I am too boring to meet one on one with anyone.
