Rules for friends: Rules??? Who needs rules??? Ain't none!!!
Rules for me: Just tryin to enjoy myself.
Good rules for life:
Money cannot buy happiness, but it’s more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.
Forgive your enemy but remember the bastard's name.
Help someone when they are in trouble, and they will remember you when they're in trouble again!
Many people are alive only because it’s illegal to shoot them.
Alcohol does not solve any problems, but then neither does milk.
Question I get all the time: What does "TSM" stand for?
Answer: Hell if I know. Just thought it sounded cool at the time.

In Fort Worth, Texas at a crowded bus stop near the stock yards, a beautiful young woman was waiting for the bus. She was decked out in a tight leather mini skirt with matching tight leather boots and jacket. As the bus rolled up and it was her turn to get on, she became aware that her skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first step on the bus. Slightly embarrassed and with a quick smile to the bus driver, she reached behind her and unzipped her skirt a little thinking that this would give her enough slack to raise her leg. Again she tried to make the step onto the bus only to discover she still couldn't! So, a little more embarrassed, she once again reached behind her and unzipped her skirt a little more and for a second time attempted the step Once again, much to her chagrin, she could not raise her leg because of the tight skirt. So, with a coy little smile to the driver she again unzipped the offending skirt to give little more slack and still was unable to make the step. A big Texan that was behind her in the line picked her up easily from the waist and placed her lightly on the step of the bus. Well, she went ballistic and turned on the would-be hero, Screeching at him, "How dare you touch my body!! I don't even know who you are!" The Texan tipped his hat and drawled "Well ma'am normally I would agree with you, but after you unzipped my fly three times, I kinda figured that we was friends."
Hi, my name is Bob. If you are military or ex-military, stop and say hi! I'm retired military and always enjoy saying hi to fellow vets! Thanks for your service! According to my friends, I have a serious and a humorous side. According to my old Brit Mum, I inherited a dry sense of humor. I'm first gen Brit and have Lakota (Sioux) heritage.
I'm originally from San Antonio, Texas and grew up as an Army Brat in the UK, France, Germany, and Texas. I was very fortunate to travel world wide as an Army Brat and while on active duty. I am a misplaced Texan living in Oklahoma but am pretty vocal about being a Texan (does it show?).
I can take a verbal blow from a lady pretty good as long as you don't wipe the floor with me, tear my Union Jack, and scare my bulldog to bad (the Brit part of me). Once an Aussie lady whipped me pretty good... Took me 2 months to find my bulldog!
Believe it or not, some of us Texans are educated and can speak english fairly well. We actually wear shoes (naww, maybe boots). I'm an old rocker and juvenile delinquent who never really grew up and have a great sense of humor (at least I think so). Being an engineer most of my professional life, I'm a bit of a geek, but not that bad. I actually like math! I use duct tape to wrap around my favorite boots which are sadly worn out. I have to use my engineering skills to keep these old boots mended. I can afford new ones, but I love those old boots! Kinda tough to dance that way, but I do OK. Just my Texas ways I guess.
I can be shameless, but that has been described as one of my endearing qualities. If I pick up a few friends here along the way, that's OK. I am single (and not lookin) with two grown daughters.
I served my country for over 30 years as enlisted and officer. I enjoyed my time in the military with all the ups, downs,and not so nice places to visit that go with it. I work with an animal rescue (no kill policy), as an engineering and logistics consultant with the aerospace industry, and with various veterans groups in my spare time. It's time for me to give back to the military veteran community because I am able to help where many can not, especially our wounded warriors.
I also worked on small farms and ranches in South Texas with my family for a few years and loved it. I'm just a country boy from South Texas and never thought of myself as a cowboy; just a good hand with horses and cattle. Also in my pre-military days, I was part of a team that built and raced old muscle cars in the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) circuit in South Texas. We had some good successes on drag strips all over South Texas. A great experience!
I love my Bikes. I ride a lot for our vets who can't ride for themselves. But I'm getting kinda beat up after 15 years of riding, so I many retire from that fairly soon.
Enjoy the music!
A Texan will tell you that he or she has the biggest and best of anything. Italians love good food, Frenchmen enjoy good wine, and Texans just love to brag.
Similar musical tastes, our military, first responders, native american descent and interests, the outdoors and nature, farming and/or ranching background, the aviation industry, NASCAR and racing, bikes, any kind of history, and diverse backgrounds and viewpoints.
I'm not into TV but occasionally like to watch the history channel and news.
On occasion old Japanese samari flicks. These guys have grit!
I'm a voracious reader and will read just about anything in print.
