  • Where's our young buddy Chris_Dresbach????

    Sometime today, I clicked on an old thread that had a comment by Chris. Then, I realized that I have not seen a post in some time. I always enjoyed his youthful enthusiasm.

    I hope all is well with him.

    I was wondering the same. Where are you Chris?

      I seem to recall he'd been accepted into the Fire Department, perhaps he's in training?

          He stopped by yesterday to pick a champ seat. I think Ed Reynolds and the rookie school are keeping him pretty busy. He has made some mention of females.

            Saw him Tuesday at SI. He is well. Busy at sorting and inventorying parts and fire training.

                Thanks Jim. A while back...someone posted a similar inquiry about me. At that time, I had been hit with a bad case of vertigo. If any of you have ever had this malady, you know how difficult it is to focus on anything while your are nauseated and the world is spinning.

                If Chris is too busy doing worthwhile activities...I'll happily cheer him on.

                  Uh-oh. Someone mentioned female. BP
                  We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                  Ayn Rand:
                  "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    That 1940 Champion of his is guaranteed to 'pull the chicks''!

                    Specially with an R1 grille emblem!

                      You realize of course how some females react when they see a man in uniform. Firefighters in uniform can really attract the ladies, particularly young firefighters.

                            When my wife and I were in South Bend for the '12 International Meet, we visited the Studebaker Int'l new facility. Chris gave groups of people tours of the facility and we saw a bunch of parts that had yet to be inventoried. All that stuff came from SASCO. I couldn't believe all those parts, many of which were from the '30s. I didn't realize that Studebaker used that plant to produce trucks and airplane engines for the war effort.
                            What a history!!!
                            Chis is a fine young man and I know he'll be successful.

                              It took me a little while to decide how I wanted to address this, but I am still around. Back in December stuff got crazy here on the forum, from a moderators perspective. At the same time, stuff got double crazy politically in the Michiana Chapter. I won't go into the details of what happened, but I decided that I needed to take a far step back and take a break. The only exception was to fulfill my obligation here as a moderator, which I still do. Even then, the only time I would really "jump to it" is if somebody reported a post (we automatically get emails when that happens) or if I just happened to see something when I would periodically check in. As for the Michiana Chapter, my last nerve was struck earlier this year. I was already elected as Secretary, and I figured that I needed to also fulfill that obligation; but I highly doubt I'm going to go for reelection.

                              So, the moral of the story is that I just needed an extended break. Shoot, this is my first post in 2014 and it's March! The dust has settled here on the forum, so I might get back into it a little at a time. I'm still working at SI. Right now we're in the process of getting ready for the May meet. At work I finally got my own desk and a swivel chair, so I'm all happy right now. The Fire Department has also been keeping me busy. For the past few months all of us recruits have been training to become EMTs and yesterday we all passed our state practicals. Monday I'm taking my written test and when I pass I'll be a certified EMT. And even when I'm in my Class B uniform, there a no women in my life right now. You would be shocked at how hard it is to find one that would want a guy that makes good money working a full time job and is also training to be a firefighter...
