Hey there from new guy to Forum

Discussion in 'Introduce Yourself!' started by dikareb_toolman, Apr 30, 2007.

  1. I joined the Forum last week and spent a few days browsing around - I think I like it here. I hail from the Chicago area and in the burbs I'm from, there's not many people like us. I was glad to find some neighborhoods mentioned here where I might go check out and see if I can make some friends. Its not like I can't find friends or anything like that, its just that I have 2 kids that I love spending time with and while they were growing up I spent as much time as I could with them after work and on weekends. Now that they're in Jr. high and high school, there getting more independant and I'm enjoying watching them spread thier wings and start thier own lives. Of course I will never turn down any oprotunities to be with them if they're looking to hang out with 'ol dad. Anyway, this is supposed to be an introduction so... I'm in my early 40's and am an easy going, forgiving, peacefull and fun loving guy who enjoys just about any activity thats done out doors. I love to enjoy gatherings as well. Festivals filled with like minded people are always fun to me. The only one's I am planning to go to this year (so far) are the Johnny Appleseed festival in Indiana, and the Native American Harvest Festival in Naperville, Il. (25 min. west of Chicago). Both are in the late summer/fall time. I would be interested if anyne from the area knew of any more activities they could let me know about and I could add some more fun to my list of things to do this summer. Looking forward to being part of your Forum, I wish all a happy summer.

  5. Hey Lauren, Glad to meet another Beatles fan. Back in the 60's and 70's when I was a kid, my dad had a Beatles tribute band. This was before there were any tribute bands. I was kinda raised on the Beatles so I would have been a fan like it or not. Good thing the Beatles were one of trhe best bands ever. Thanks for the welcome.

    I've other items posted in the Fashion & Crafts forum, as do many other very talented crafters with ebay and etsy stores ;)
  16. Wow, all the great welcomes coming my way is great. Beautifullhippy2, thanks for noticing the bare feet. I dont like shoes much. About a year ago I found out that all the state health departments do not have any regulations about shoes required so I took my shoes off and have stayed barefoot since. Great freedom in being barefoot. Keeps me grounded and humble to our mother earth. Does that sound corny ? - I don't care really, All I know is I feel great.
