    Speaking my own mind, in my own words, and interacting with people who speak their own minds, in their own words. 😛

    It makes me happy to see my children enjoying success or satisfaction as a result of their own efforts or initiative.

    The smell of gun oil, the metallic thump of a chambering round, the break of a trigger, the firm push of recoil, the glitter of falling brass and holes in paper souls.

    About @Hand-of-Hecate:

    "Dear Grampy Bobby,

    There's a lesson in this for you. If God don't cut you down, time'll grind you in its gears:

    "You can run on for a long time
    Run on for a long time
    Run on for a long time
    Sooner or later God'll cut you down
    Sooner or later God'll cut you down

    Go tell that long tongue liar
    Go and tell that midnight rider
    Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
    Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
    Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

    Well my goodness gracious let me tell you the news
    My head's been wet with the midnight dew
    I've been down on bended knee talkin' to the man from Galilee*
    He spoke to me in the voice so sweet
    I thought I heard the shuffle of the angel's feet
    He called my name and my heart stood still
    When he said, "John go do My will!"

    Go tell that long tongue liar
    Go and tell that midnight rider
    Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
    Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
    Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

    You can run on for a long time
    Run on for a long time
    Run on for a long time
    Sooner or later God'll cut you down
    Sooner or later God'll cut you down

    Well you may throw your rock and hide your hand
    Workin' in the dark against your fellow man
    But as sure as God made black and white
    What's done in the dark will be brought to the light

    You can run on for a long time
    Run on for a long time
    Run on for a long time
    Sooner or later God'll cut you down
    Sooner or later God'll cut you down

    Go tell that long tongue liar
    Go and tell that midnight rider
    Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter
    Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down
    Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down
    Tell 'em that God's gonna cut you down"

    The Man in Black"

    I am just so tired of reading profiles in forum threads. If I want to read a profile I'm perfectly capable of doing so.

    I, for one, hate my profile.
    Nose dominates my face, chin not nearly as emphatic as I'd like.
    Hair's good, though.

    Appears to me like a poem to GB.... Who in their right mind would put that in their profile?

    Then why on earth does this online correspondence chess site provide Personal Profiles for every RHP Subscriber and Non-Subscriber?

    When everyone knows that there are profiles, and where they are, why do you keep copy pasting them into thread posts?

    Is it your intent that this thread isn't actually about answering the question "What Things Make You Happy?" but is instead about speculating about - or attributing to others - what might make them happy? You've shifted the topic to Hand of Hecate's profile content and it's not even half way down page 1 yet. What's more, you yourself haven't even offered an original or personal answer to the OP yet.

    Usually, but perhaps not always, the first pre-dawn cup of coffee of the day.
