A friendship tail of the Beav and the Jim

Our Jim Moyer said something last night that struck a bell. He said, "We all need to be knocked off our comfort zones
of habitual ideology."

Hmm, said I, how right he is. I think it's time for our soggy dam beaver and our Jim of the Existential-speak to get flung bodily out of their comfort zones and come to terms with their friendship, which they will do, of course, once they find out how much they have in common.

Okay . . . hmm, let's move right on to the questions:

1. What sort of hobby or chore brings you great satisfaction?

2. If you could own any car, what would it be?

3. What is your biggest pet peeve (tsk, and no, NOT the one that instantly came to mind)?

4. Describe a perfect way to spend an evening.

5. What do you grudgingly admire about the other?

Haha Haggis.....you are asking these question of Beaver and Jim or of the forum membership as a group?

I agree the quote of Jim's was terrific.... another keeper of the many he delivers.

I await your two subjects' responses..... in anticipation!

Well, I think we need to hunt down the tardy ones. It is 8 am, what do they think, that it's the weekend and they can just wander in any old time? Tsk. If you guys catch either of these rascals sneaking around the other rooms, just drag 'em over here.

I like to build things, houses, chairs, chests, and I enjoy a good book (non fiction).
My biggest pet peeve is routine meals, just routine in general.
My perfect evening is sitting in my custom made rocking chair in front of the wood stove with my cat on my lap into my second liter of homemade wine trying to understand some authors ideas.
I grudgingly admire Jimmoyers misdirected intelligence.
I almost forgot the car, one of those smart cars the ones Mercedes build, a diesel .

Hi, awesome answers as always, Beav. How great to have the skill to create furniture!

I am posting something here so as to bring this thread up to the top, where it belongs, while we wait for Mr. Jim Moyer to arrive. He must have slept in, tsk.

Heh, heh, time to pull this up to the Recent Threads section again. Jim, you can run but you can't hide. Where ARE you? (she whined)

Man, I wish Jim would get here soon, this poor thread keeps slipping down the line. Jim, when you read this, go to the top for your questions. Dark Beaver has totally beaten you to it, his answers are 'way up there as well. We are waiting with bated breath for the quixotical and existential answers of Jim Moyer!

First we have to find out when he's coming to (the forum)!

I'm at work right now, and have but a little window
of op here. But with being artist in residence at a
local museum this weekend, I really might not get to
this until Monday night...but I do like that custom
chair, that woodstove and that home-made wine
of Darkbeaver's.

Ta da! Well, I have, for your convenience, sent the link to this thread to your PM depository, to be clicked on at your leisure on Monday at the very latest. My, that's a long time to ask us to sit with bated breath, Jim.

<edited to say, can't find a decent waiting-with-bated-breath emoticon, will have to settle for plain-old plain-old>

Just got home, got some errands done.
In between the next thing to do. And since I enjoy
the conversation on this board, despite being a grump
sometimes, I can't resist.

1. What sort of hobby or chore brings you great satisfaction?

Writing and painting, sketching, pastels, watercolor
and chess, hiking and camping.


2. If you could own any car, what would it be?

Nash Rambler. Plymouth Prowler.
I own an Isuzu Rodeo, Chrsyler van, and my daughter
drives Honda Accord, who's boyfriend just smashed
up his own car late last night and who is okay.

3. What is your biggest pet peeve (tsk, and no, NOT the one that instantly came to mind)?

I don't have any pet peeves except for the irk of Now.


4. Describe a perfect way to spend an evening.

Relaxing by the fire. Backrubs. Hot baths.
Massage everywhere. But being a single parent
and my girlfriend living about 10 blocks away we got
some solos nights and tandem nights. Sometimes
we're both quiet just painting and drawing. She
has some of the best art showings around, complete
with food, adult beverages, and music, at old
southern style monster homes. Or since February of
last year I found this addiction, writing on this board
stimulating some ideas for other writing I want to do.

5. What do you grudgingly admire about the other?
Referring to the Darkbeaver !! I would prefer to
have a grudging admiration, but sincerely I don't know
him well enough, except to have seen a good nature,
ability to joke and laugh, and I get a good vibe on
that woodstove and his woodworking ability.

You guys are great! And my, look at the way you agree on things!

. . . oh, and if you represent grouches, Jim, all I can say is, the world needs more of 'em.

Nash Ramblers are the best! I have an mp3 song about one, in fact. These are the lyrics: http://tinyurl.com/g8xg8

I wish I had the time to learn art skills, it must be so fine to express oneself with brush and paint and sketching. I look for curves and texture in trees, rock maple and silver birch are my favorite woods.Your evenings sound like mine were once upon a time,enjoy them the memories will sustain you in difficult times.
P.S. I think that Haggis McBagpipe person is wise.

You are sweet, Dark Beaver, but it isn't that I am wise, it is that you and Jim Moyer and Colpy are good humans, and I have found in this life that there is always a bridge to connect good humans. It is just a matter of finding it. Thank you!
