There are theories that the false rule originates with the early usage guides of Joshua Poole and John Dryden, who were trying to align the language with Latin, but there is no reason to suggest ending a sentence with a preposition is wrong. Nonetheless, the idea that it is a rule is still held by many.
Well, perhaps you now are like some of us that joined in more recent years in the fact that many of us are all now getting a lot of milage and our runway of life has become a shorter trip to the end of the tarmac.
I know it might pizzes you off, but my long gone Mom as a long time grade school/junior high teacher would not let it go.
This phrase, does not need the last word you put into it. The intent of the sentence was totally and completely covered without that last word.
"Where are us old timers at. "
Excellent post Blastfrom"the"Past !!! Agree with you 100%, especially "tragically left our ranks due to passing on" Mrs. tennesseecozydog passed on July 25, 2019. A little over 3 months later (November 2nd, 2019) I purchased my 3rd SSR for companionship. Still got "her" with 157,000 + miles, and just had the Top Roof Cylinders rebuilt by Zig in Florida and the Front End rebuilt and aligned at Bud's Tire here in Murfreesboro. Got up at 5:30 this morning, put the Top down and rode around town in the cool morning breeze. Climbing the calendar to 82 (February 1, 2022) and hopefully can continue enjoying old "Banana Split" a few more years. 🇺🇸 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸I joined the fanatics in 4/2004. I enjoy all the members here. We have lost a large number of fanatics as they have sold their trucks, or more tragically left our ranks due to passing on. This is traditionally an “older” group of people. I am thrilled that we have new members joining us almost daily. Without them, this site would have lost it’s relevance some time ago.
I am not on Facebook, so this site is my singular source of information for all things SSR. Thank you all, old timers and newbies, and everyone in between for keeping this site active and alive.
Good morning BMBLBEE, are you the Animal Doctor (Vet) from the St. Louis area ??? Saw you in Maggie Valley once dressed up like a Bumblebee. tennesseecozydog 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 😺😸😹😻😼😽🙀😿😾I've been around since 2003 and still watching what goes on. I don't have much to say but do make a comment from time to time.
Gary - Do u remember how I panicked following you going to Provincetown,MA...youJoined in 2009 when I was 62. I'm somewhat older now. Haven't commented much, but sure have found a lot of helpful information here along the years.
I think both the Fanatic forum and FB have their place. To me, this forum is a true reflection of the SSR enthusiast, the nuts and bolts of our shared interest. Facebook I find to be more contemporary, enjoyable in its own way, but more 'me' than 'us'.
Wifey Sue and I attended our first rally in Sturbridge, MA. (forget what year), and have since tried to make one or two every year. Many friends have been made and belly laughs enjoyed along the way.
Our thanks and gratitude goes out to all those who have contributed, participated, and many times sacrificed time and energy to make this community possible. Especially the rally hosts. It's a huge endeavor.
Looking forward to as many new permagrin adventures as the Lord allows, Gary.
NOPE - that was not me. My young daughter gave me the name when I bought a yellow C5 CorvetteGood morning BMBLBEE, are you the Animal Doctor (Vet) from the St. Louis area ??? Saw you in Maggie Valley once dressed up like a Bumblebee. tennesseecozydog 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 😺😸😹😻😼😽🙀😿😾
I think you're right "CRICKET" and I also think the Doctor told me his was the Slingshot Yellow SSR used in the TV add which I guess would have made it an 03. Also I know he was a small animal doctor in the St. Louis area. Short like you and wore suspenders ... Correct !!!If my memory (?????) is correct your were referring to "killerbee"...
met him at Maggie had the yellow R with ***bee""" prints on it..🐝.
Can't think of his first name, short like me and wore suspenders..
