Fred Bear 1902 ~ 1988. {American}

This 31 year deceased, American gentleman and yours truly have two things in common. Firstly our birthdays; his a Wednesday, mine a Tuesday, March 5th, a mere 38 years apart. Secondly his success, or lack off, was directly down to his plucking ability. Mine depends on the situation, those involved and my aerial heroes the communist arrows.

I am posting this thread today, Sunday March 31st, rather than tomorrow, Monday April 1st ~ again for two reasons ~ firstly so that you know it is serious, not a joke and secondly so that the ED section of SN does not remain naked of fresh posts first, or second class, like this one. Threadbare? Never!
