    Must be why you get the big money round here, reading for content even when there is no content!


    To the best of my memory, which I can correct by looking up the original post:

    a keg shoe with a modification and a hand forged mirror copy, judge and contestants should note, mirrored. added info, it can be from steel, ali. ti..

    if this description will suffice then it will stand for the rule/parameters, if not i ll go look it up but might crash the site in the process. anti up

    Seems there is a limit to the amount of abuse even Linda can take...

    Wish I lived closer, that's an opportunity I'd like to be given... :)

    I'll take that advice!

    Plater,

    in this thread, you turned down an offer to help you, and eventually maybe us, the forum members!

    You picked up the lead for the August contest, offered to judge and submitted some thing, potential participants had questions and began critiqueing what you presented, then you dropped what you started, for whatever reason that you started it and left folk hanging. Think of it as starting a horse, pulling the right front shoe off, and leaving the job, the horse and owner standing in the paddocks. In my mind might have been better to have not shown up that day.

    in my opinion, you are the one being abusive to you , deal is to me, when you present to the world on the world wide web/here one opens oneself up.

    THE CONTEST IS ON


    OK, that for me was a lot of pencil pushing, help me out please and someone post a pic for the contest, i don t want to have to break my rule and make up some BS just to kick start this.

    Still waiting to here from Sr Mary Theodoceus, she was my 6 th grade teacher in 1960, I hope I can depend on her.

    well 6;00 pm est has come and gone, neither Sr. Theodoceus nor plater have contacted me, now that I think of it Sr. Theodoceus was around 60 yrs or more when she took the time to explain to me what a dummy I was, this being some 50 yrs if I do the math, hopefully for her ,she was able to forget me,the handsome little red headed basturd, .......plater, just don t know!

    So moving on, we need a Judge for the contest that s up, 1st one to hit the keyboard is it......no changies back>
