Hello Mary;

I'm new to this forum, but have been retired due to medical issues for about a century.  I was one of the lucky guys who got busted up enough that I don't have to work anymore. Yea  I don't really recommend it, tho.  If your back gets broke, It will mess up your whole day.  

About to get used to it, altho I doubt if I'll ever get to liking it.  A lot of things I don't do anymore, A lot of things I CAN'T do anymore.   

Oh well;  Learn from yesterday

               Hope for tomorrow            

               Live for today
Cole

Ahoy all. Jack Sparrow here. OR coast. The 4th/July Parade was loads of fun! 

We used to have a '95 Mitsubishi Montero for 11 years -- have finally retired the ol' girl -- our new "Car/Truck/Land-Yacht/SUV/Beastie-Thing" (as I call her) is a new, shiny 2012 Jeep Liberty. Reason I bring that up, is 'cause the Mitsi was a shiny turquoise, I brought her home & painter her black, with the Jack Rackham (skull & swords) on the doors & hood. The Jeep's color is named "Black Crystal" -- she's BEAUTIFUL! Came (to me) with the Rackham decaled on her already.

Her 1st appearance in the parade, with me sittin' atop.

Nice sunburn. lol.

So anyway - we're advertising that our Pirate Treasure Hunt (12th Annual) is on Aug. 5th, in Depoe Bay, OR. Come One, Come All. Fun will have been had! Get out a map -- Depoe Bay is very tine, on the Central OR Coast! All proceeds to our Local Food Bank. Thanks very much.

(when this event is over, I'll talk about something else, lol)

I hope I'm not replying to just one person, I'm assuming (?) this goes on the general board?

I don't know how this works, otherwise, than to click on "reply".

I have been reading a few of the Newbies Introductions... this is literally only my 3rd or 4th post.

I'm Jack, I live on the central OR coast. We were just in the 4th/July parade, which is always exciting... this was our 4th time in parade.

August 5th is going to be our 12th Annual Pirate Treasure Hunt, in Depoe Bay, OR. (Check a map, it's a very small town right on the water!) Come one, come all, and have piratical fun! Man LOL Cat Very Happy

Welcome! As a New England transplant to NC, I would be happy to share with you insights to living in NC! PM me with specific questions but overall it can be overwhelming to adjust to a new region if you are leaving behind generations of family history but it has been great. I'm in a college town so I have access to great activities and opportunities, I still enjoy the change of seasons (though it is mostly temperate and in the odd 1 or 2 snow days EVERYTHING shuts down and then goes away without much fuss) and the cost of living is wonderful. Both mountains and beaches are accessible and international airports are a cinch. Crappy public primary and high schools but primo state and private universities. Great sports. Crappy politics (which makes activism a great pastime).
