    OK. Let's teach an old dog some new tricks.

    Hi!
    I'm new to your website as of 2019/11/22. I'm an 87 year old male, comfortable with a number of firearms who raised chickens as a kid, hopped freight trains to ride to the Cleveland,OH zoo to sell ice cream or peanuts at the ballfields. (age 7-8) Spent time in USAF early fifties, did about 40 years in public education and now want to learn more about ham radio and staying alive stuff so I don't get too senile. (Maybe not become more senile?) I'm always opinionated but open for your influence and guidance. The only blatantly "Know-it-All" I pay attention to is myself. SO....., I'm looking forward to the many things I'll learn from the experienced and talented folks on this Forum. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Welcome Charlie!

    Would love to hear stories about you hopping freight trains and going to the old ballparks! I guess that would have been in the 1940's or so? Sounds like you've done a darn good job of staying alive without our help!

    Thanks, your new friend Slippy!

    Welcome Charlie. Sounds like you might be able to teach us old dogs a few new tricks.

    Howdy, and welcome!

    Always good to get new perspectives in the mix. Coming to learn is fine and dandy, but offering up what you know too is the price of admission.
    We'll show you ours if you'll show us yours!

    The only old man you have to worry about is the one who is trotting around with a bunch of young guys in a profession where early death is a given.

    May God bless,

    If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

    If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran.

    Welcome, I would say if you make it to 87 you have a right to be opinionated .
    New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.
