    ...and that wasn't what was being said on this thread, the fact is that the two of you bear a resemblance to two characters from a 1980s British sit-com (Colonel Von Stromm and Leutnant Gruber) in the picture provided by Merlin.

    I'm not aware that anyone suggested Tunic was related to you either, however I would suggest that comments like:

    speak volumes about the immaturity and poor attitude of the individual concerned, but then it's not like it's the first time we've read similar xenophobia either. :roll:

    No-one was making serious digs about appearances in any of the threads, the comments I read were a bit of light hearted fun, nothing more serious. Don't take it to heart. If you or Tunic can't take it without resorting to insults (in his case), perhaps you're better off not posting pictures in the first place.

    I am not feeling insulted by being compared to an excellent cast of an excellent show, I am not mad at u guys im mad at Will for over reacting you have to remember he is just 21 and kind of provincial. this used to be my favorite site on the internet but now I shudder everytime I get a message reply notification. I will get Will some peppermint sox since he likes to put his foot in his mouth. His comment was uncalled for. Both Will and I do a Tommy impression and should be ultra careful about sacred... er um.... the queen

    Sometimes its the way you ask them. Saying "when do you think she is going to die" is hardly polite -- its more as if you are hoping for a legacy. If you really took any interest in the British Monarchy, you would know that this country, together with many other countries in the British Commonwealth, celebrated Her Majesty's 80th birthday this year.

    Please everybody lets keep focussed.

    I'm glad we've got to the point where we're all fine with everything, but I don't like the fact that we had to get there... :angry:

    Everybody, please, post with a little more thought and tact...

    well the photo in the heading German Soldat was taken in the battle of the bulge in Arkansas battle area. but the rest need to be resized to get sent to the forum. I need to take the pix of the whole darn woods and publish it . its really quite remarkable that I live on this piece of land.

    Battle of the Bulge

    yes, the signs are made and the bunkers progessing, part of the land has changed ownership but were still good to go. at last count 60 reenactors had committed. its all us poor ones who cant afford to go to the Gap in Pennsylvania about 1100 miles or more away. several vehicles are promised too.

    Ardennes event

    to tell you the truth I am nervous about it. after all we have hosted only one event, and I am right up there as far as praise or blame to assign.to add to that i have to live here with the people whose lives will be most disturbed by massive gun fire. we are near enough to inhabitants of the region that they will hear the MG and other weapons

    Re: Ardennes event

    I never knew you actually fire guns during reenacting. Sounds more and more interesting here KP! But please do tell me you don't use live ammunition.

    Actually we are in the Ouachita Mtns, we are more than 150 miles form the Ozarks. And what do you mean by dog patch. Also dont listen to him, there is no live fire. Its a simple WWII Reenactment. Thats ALL!!

    Dog-Patch? surely all true mountain boys know of Dog-Patch with Lil Abner and Daisy Mae?
    And what's 150 miles to a mountain boy?
    Glad to see the 'Good-old- Boys' sense of humour is as sharp as ever! :roll:
