It is my "alter ego". I have copyrighted a costumed character named Captain Obvious. (Yes, it is registered with the Federal Government). I have owned it since February 11, 2011.

I have been Captain O ever since. ::tu::

Is that the same Captain Obvious in the Hotels.com TV commercials?

"Kootenay Joe" is the name of a 7,500' mountain ridge that is directly above my house & property. Between my house and the ridge top is 5000 vertical feet of untouched wilderness bush. My bedroom window opens towards the ridge and at night the cleanest downdraft in the world comes in through the open window and washes over me, made sparklingly fresh by the many thousands of trees it has just come through. It is so refreshing and calm.

No, mine is a caped character(in ecru colored tights and earth colored briefs and cape. I wish that I could find a way to post my image from my photo disc. I must be careful, because there are a large number of people that would be more than happy to engage in copyright fraud.

(You're not paranoid if someone is willing to steal your image and use it without permission).

Used to hunt a little bit, always trained my own birddogs. I liked the German shorthair and I named the first one Buddie, got another one after he got to old to hunt.I liked the first ones name so much I named the second one buddie 2. So I thought I would just keep the name around to remind me of my hunting buddies. Spent a lot of good time chasseing those wily pheasants in Kansas and Iowa,great times

My username and avatar reflect the fact that I served with the 2/28th Infantry while in Vietnam. I carry a little pride for my unit and the guys I served with; C company, 2/28th Infantry, 1st Infantry Division. The regiment was known as "The Black Lions of Cantigny"; a name bestowed upon them during WW1. The Chicago Tribune, Robert McCormick, 1st Infantry Division museum and Cantigny are all tied together into a park and golf course located in Winfield, IL. That makes it fairly obvious that I'm not the only one who has felt the pride.

I was reloading my M-16 magazines when I took pause to look at the people around me. I'd grown up not having a brother and suddenly realized I now had a hundred of them.

Are you in touch with any of the guys you served with? If you are you know that even though you may not have seen them in 30 years or more, when you get in touch with them, it's just like you saw them yesterday.

I'm in touch with a few of them but have been in touch with quite a few. I started research on our companies "travels" in RVN back in the late 70's. Rough going back then before the internet was accessible to me. The 1st Division museum isn't too far from me so there was some material available but not a bunch. Then Newsweek did the article on us, CBS/Bill Moyer did the TV special (Bittersweet Memories) and then the book got published. And so...with my notes/letters home I was able to piece even more together. The internet was a huge help and then the web REALLY got things going. Some members of our regiment started a web page which developed into a site which developed into the Black Lions Society which now has so many members that they can't afford to mail out member lists anymore.

My good buddy, Mike MacDonald, (no...not the singer) was humping the squad radio when I first joined the platoon, then he moved to humping company radio, then he moved to battalion radio and now he's the president of the BL society. I've got well over 1,000 photos, 2/28th DSJ's, 1st Div. AA's and a full set of operational maps of south Vietnam. When I get done with the research it's going into museum here in Illinois so it will be available for research in their library. I'm on my 5th computer with a 6th one about ready to be put online, 4 scanners and all sorts of printer paper...miles of it from way back when. I'm in a 10'x10' room that has about 8 sq ft of walking area available anymore. ::sigh:: ::shrug::

It takes a lot of time and effort to find those guys, especially if they have no interest in being found. I hunted down guys I went through boot camp with and guys I was stationed with. Over a period of appx. 20 years, I found 60% of the guys from boot camp, some deceased and some since deceased. I found about 70 I was stationed with at one time or another, some fertilizing the flowers, again about 66%/33%. A few stay in contact but the majority show no interest and I'm running out of enthusiasm.

I am a Swedish guy who hunts, shoots and collects Sakos and I have a lot of Sako branded items so when I signed up on British Blades it struck me that I own a couple of Finnish fixed blades with a Sako logo so I decided to use that as a handle for all blade forums I participate in, which is currently two. :)

Here is a pic for your viewing pleasure!
