This really is the best bunch of people on the nets.
on: February 08, 2019, 04:07:08 AM
After admiring everyone else's Swiss Champs during the January challenge I lamented that I'd been unable to win one on E-bay after several attempts and I just figured it wasn't my turn. I figured I had bad Karma because I had stomped a Palmetto bug that had come in the house.  Poor thing was only trying to escape from the cold and the rain.  Thinking about it I felt guilty (but not too guilty) and I still had no Swiss Champ.  Then, I got a message from our own Barry Rowland. He said he had an extra he figured he could spare and he would send it to me.  :woohoo: It arrived today Barry. Thank you so much. :mail:  As you guys can tell from the pictures, it is absolutely perfect.  Can you believe Barry actually apologized that it might be a little dirty from the challenge and need a good cleaning.  :rofl:  Barry you're a true gentleman and I thank you again for your generosity. :hatsoff:

I've always thought (and said) this is the best forum going!  I was gifted a SwissChamp from @s1xty7, and it just so happens to be on my belt today.

Good on ya Barry for sending that beauty over to Alan! :cheers:

Nice going Barry and AlanK!

But I'm curious now -- what does this mean about the moral providence of squishing palmetto bugs?

Nice one Barry.

If you need me to pop round to the U Boat and make sure Mags keeps his trap shut Barry you just have to say. That hull won't take much messing from a SAK can opener  :whistle:

Ironically, since we're moored next to the council recycling centre doing repairs, the hull is mostly made of tin cans.  :D
