Greg, FANTASTIC

Thanks for posting the photo of Carl. Wouldn't it be great to somehow get to meet all the folks that
post to the Forum. I remember how nice it was to meet you in person and that makes posting to the
Forum that much more friendly and rewarding.

Bob

Beautiful photo. And you centered your camera on the most important part of the hobby: the people behind the models.

Thanks Michael!
And you are so right about the most important part being the people behind the models.
So it's great when one gets the chance to finally meet one of them in person!

Hi Adrian, glad you enjoy what your seeing here, after your 6 month long shore leave.
I hope this thread will offer you some useful ideas for your own wharf/pier project.

Bob, your very welcome my friend!
I also remember how thrilled I was to finally meet you in person too!
And those meetings do make our interactions here more friendly and rewarding!

Hey Greg,

That's a great photo of Carl. It's always great to see the faces behind the postings, even better to meet them. I, too, have had the pleasure of meeting you and enjoying your hospitality.

Well, I guess I couldn't hide my mug forever!

Yes indeed, it was quite coincidental for my work to take me so close to Greg's!
And we made it happen, even though we both had a time crunch.

Thanks Greg, for the great time- 3 hours felt like 3 minutes!

Friends, the cliché "pictures don't do it justice" is appropriate here.
His modeling is great- Greg is wonderful guy, and I am very glad to have met him.

All the best!

Thanks Jeff & Carl, for your posts!

Carl, I'm so glad that we were able to get together, and finally meet in person!
You have been a real friend to me, here on the forum.
And have even helped me with other stuff, outside the forum.
I'm grateful that you took the time to check your map, to see how close I was to your event that you were covering.
And that you contacted me about the idea of getting together.
I had a nice time, and your right 3 hours did go by rather quickly.
My Scottish Father taught me a Gaelic expression "Bon Accord"
Which translates to, "Nice to have met you, Sorry that we must part, Hope that we will meet again one day in the future"
And that is exactly how I feel, about our get together.
Bon Accord Carl!

Greg

Well Greg, it might be next year around April. That’s the safe travel season in Florida. No hurricanes that time of year. We’ll have to see how we’re doing, at my age nothing’s a given except that hurricane season is June 1 to Nov 30.

Bill, I never saw so much rain. Our county had the most rain in Florida, around 20 inches in a 4 day period. The pond behind my house was the highest I’ve ever seen it.



The water’s almost up to my neighbor’s scrawny orange tree. Her fire pit is about to go under.



The usual pond water line is out to the cypress trees (yellow line) and not up to the oak tree. The house was 45' or so farther back and 4'-5' higher in elevation.



The far end of the pond is over the golf cart path.

Frank, you would be welcome to visit at any time of the year!

Looks like quite the rainfall that you had there, 20 inches over 4 days is crazy!
You should start building a large scale ark in your backyard.

It was weird, Hermine made landfall 200 miles north west of us but the rain bands were the strongest here.

I was going with a tug boat and rail barge.

Frank, Glad you didn't drift away there. We got a good breeze and a little much needed rain here on Tuesday, but hadn't realized how much you got down there - like you said it stay away from the coast there.
