What Constitutes a Gentleman?

I decided to write this post after several months on Ratburger because this species is a rare one indeed. We are fortunate enough to have a few of these gems on this site so here goes:

Trinity Waters:
He’s waay cool and has created a pretty impressive collection of wildlife pics AND has graciously offered to share his knowledge of koi ponds.

MJB and BGS:
Definite So-Cons but they have been interesting and fun to talk to and willing to discuss political issues openly with this secular member. I appreciate this because it’s unusual.

Curt North:
Definitely some homie bias here but I do wish he would participate more over here. He’s a sensible midwesterner and I like those type of guys.

Larry Koler:
I’ve already PMed him: Where are you? I like the fact that he reads a lot of books.

MLR:
Last but not least! Smart, well-educated and very interesting to talk to. It’s unusual to pick up the phone and get into an intense conversation about WWII or the Civil and Revolutionary Wars with anyone!

Thanks guys.

  1. Whew!!! I was afraid I might have made the list. I dodged a bullet this time but Trin, Curt, Larry, and Mike didn’t. They are dead to me now.

    Well thanks for the shout-out;  we appreciate you also.

    I think, though, that it is easy to be gentlemanly in conversation at Ratburger.org because the entire membership is quite genteel.   In fact, I think the accolades may more properly be directed at the two or three Nevers who have joined.   They have shown themselves to be restrained and courteous even though seriously outnumbered.

    And all of our ladies are a delight in conversation.

    Well. that leaves me out in the cold. No Biggie. I guess I’ll start a short list of eccentric handy-man type people. LOL

    Gerry, it was rigged. I suspect performance enhancing drugs. Yes, only dopes made it to the final stage. 🙂

    Why are you such a troublemaker, Dime? You’re usurping my territory… 🙂

    You’re relatively new and I’m sure you’ll be on next year’s list.

    Hey! This could be fun to do once every 12 months. It could incentivize Dime to behave.

  11. Snow is coming ET.  It might be flirting with 90 today, but we all know, snow is coming.  I see my fellow Michiganders look at the sky now and then with fear and dread in their eyes.  Yes we know…snow is coming.
