Your On-Line Handle


Recommended Posts

I was renovating a house when the roof trusses turned up incorrectly made.

The roof was a bit complicated, and I had asked the contractor several times if he understood- his reply was "I know what I'm doing!". Followed by you aren't even a builder are you? Well, no, but on the other hand I am a pretty good mechanical engineer, have built some fairly complex machines, and know how to read a drawing.

The fireworks that resulted when these trusses arrived had the neighbours from all over coming to have a listen in, and the truck arrived back to remove them just as I was setting fire to the pile.

After that, Rafterboy sort of stuck. Nothing to do with rivers, I use a canadian canoe in those.

My father was a very well known fly fisherman, and worked for a very well known fishing line company for over 50 years. He was instrumental, with a few other gentleman, in developing the modern day flyline. He had, on his vehicle, the vanity plate "Flyline", which my brother and I also obtained in our respective states.

I'm a 100% country boy at heart.  It's obvious to everybody that knows me.  

However, I work down in Pittsburgh with a bunch of CPA's.  They are all city people.  They get a big kick out of my hunting, fishing, farming adventures.  So they dubed me "Country Nate".  It fits.

On some forums I use Crazy Horse RVN.

Crazy Horse was the radio call sign for my Combat Company

("B" Co. 1st BTL, 3rd BGD, 7th Cavalry) in Vietnam where I served as a Combat medic in the 1st Cavalry Division.

Some things stick with you a long time.

You are the second Viet Nam veteran I've "met" today. I salute you both. Thanks.

My two favorite grouse guns are Ithacas: Flues models.

Some guy, a while back, thought I was a chimney sweep.  I hadn't considered that....

And I was thinking it was because you're always so, p.c.

Jeff - 1st name

88 - Lynn Swan is my favorite Steeler and also 8 was the number I used a lot in sports since Wilie Stargell was also a huge favorite.

That's been my handle on a few other sites as well.

BTW, just flew on Flt 88 from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo where I'm right now.  The # has good karma, they upgraded me to 1st class and gave me a pass to the airline lounge while I wait 7 hours before heading to Houston.

Seriously, when I 1st saw the name "Ben Hong" I thought it was a handle spoofing a porn star.

"Wildbird" because the grouse of E. TN won't sit around very long. They flush and head to the next mountain top.
