HELLO, Is Anybody Here?

:bigsmile:
Where is everybody?  Did the new strain of Covid-19 wipe out the rest of humanity  :scared: and I didn't hear about it?

I think I'll go make some jerky.

I agree. All quiet on the Western front (plus the eastern, northern and southern)! What's up??

I'm busier than a one legged man in a butt kickln' contest since I've came out of retirement, but I do manage to check in a couple of times a day to see what's going on.   :laffing   :bl th up

Spring cleaning, now that the weather has cleared up. That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it. New roof, New HVAC system, Tree removers coming next week. WHEW! Me and my wallet are about wiped out.  :o
I'm  not  H/C or P/C or even a particularly  good shot but I have a hell of a good time!

Still around Kees.

I've cut way back on spending time on the computer since good weather is here. Whole lot of better things to do than setting in front of a keyboard.  :shake

I hear you, Joe!  I have a problem that there is s-o-o-o much interesting stuff on line, that I get sucked in and before I know it, I have been sitting there three or more hours.  I hate this machine sometimes!  Really need to get a little more self control, but it's hard!

Happy to say that I have been places where there is not much internet access.
Just left the Hungry Horse Rendezvous yesterday.  Fabulous, just fabulous.  Well, except for my shooting.  Wonder why I seem to think that I am ever going to get along with a flintlock?  Sure glad I wasn't born 200 years ago when there wasn't a choice.

I think that question has been asked on more than one forum; seems traffic's slowed down everywhere.  I come by here a couple times a week but after doing nothing but forums during the lockdown I'm lightening up for my own sake.  Plus, I've gotten into far too many sites and seriously need to cull a few.  No way I can visit them all.

I hear you, Hanshi!  I seem to spend hours on this machine without really doing anything useful, and in the end I don't know if I learned anything or not.  I know that several sites I used to see lots of traffic on have become borderline dead because everyone has gone over to Facebook.  In fact, the TradRag site has gone away because no one was on it any more.

Yeah, towards the end it seems like it was you, Aeronut and me.  I see him over on the Tradbow.com forums, some of the other archery sites as well.

Stay dry....
