A person who would say "stinking badge" about our "Barmy OFFers Club Badge", should be punished!

By getting awarded the "Barmy OFFers Club Badge"!!!

Yeah!!!

And since this person is a highly decorated Marine, he is one of those barmy few, who would defend

their country even still with nothing but a stick, and one arm tied to his back. I think that's barmy enough?

 

So, dear Mr. President Lou, dear Vice President Dej - I hereby request the award of the "Barmy OFFers Club Badge"

to our long time forum member

 

NS13Jarhead

 

(I know what he said about the badge, but that's sheer barmyness - secretly he loves to wear all those orders,

medals and badges on his chest - trust me!)

I'd second your motion but I'm not an OFFicer of the OFFer's! :crazy:

 

Welcome to the madhouse, HH!

I will second that one simply because he's a Jarhead... and we need someone to mind the door on a Friday night :drinks:

I think he'll need a variation on the standard OFF badge...

Crazy, because it's BARMY OFFers, not BOOZY OFFers.

 

Although...

Dej, that is a fine variation of the Club Badge for NS13Jarhead, Sir - now that you have already made it,

we must only distract our President from his slimming program for a sec, so that he can make up his

mind about Jarhead's membership.

 

Lou!?!? Are you on the treadmill?!?!?

Not on the treadmill Olham, I'm actually out in Spearfish, South Dakota. But I had a couple of minutes to check in, and just in time it appears. I say a definite "Yes" to bringing NS13Jarhead into the BOC fold, and Dej's new badge for him is not only apropos but downright spiffing!

 

:yes:

I have heard of off shore fishing but this is a new one to me on shore fishing... maybe we can now try it as the Off'ers Olympic sporting type event... :drinks:

He wasn't joking - I found "Spearfish, South Dakota" in GoogleMaps.

A pity, that these early StreetView pics are not of the good quality they made later.

 

Lou, your area looks like wide freedom to me, Sir - even the skies seem higher in America.

As if the landscapes were all done in CinemaScope and Technicolour.

It's not all like that, Herr Olham. But when I get out to places like this, it is truly amazing. You go out at night, and the stars are simply unbelievable, innumerable and burning intensity and just a huge black, clear sky, but so immediate in another way, it's tough to describe. If you ever book a trip to the American West, try to insure that a new moon night is in there somewhere.

 

But do ask the locals if you plan to go on foot any distance. I was recently in Craig, CO, and saw my first mountain lion in the wild! So when I eventually parked, I didn't go far from my car!

 

Best,

 

Tom

I know what you mean, HD - I have been in Norway three times. Norway has hardly any industries, and if, they are down

near Oslo. I was higher up, and I was amazed to see the whole Milky Way so clear, that I realised, what the name came from.

Never knew before, that there are so many stars!

Yeah, indeed it's a smashy feeling. When I go into the highest place in my country, away from city lights, I never stop feeling in awe with such vision.

No, no, no, I'm not demeaning the BOC (or BOC S/Fou) badges. OK, I keep forgetting that not everyone has memorized "Classic American Cinema" like I have. I was referring to this timeless scene from Blazing Saddles

 

 

 

or the original verion from Treasure of the Sierra Madre

Although I had seen "Sierra Madre" (long time ago) I didn't remember that bit.

Good that you cleared that up, Jarhead, now that the BOC will definitely award you

with a special badge, designed even by our Vice President.

And since it is none of the "stinking" kind, I guess you will like it.

Dej, since we all agreed: will you send the "Special BOC Badge" to NS13Jarhead?
