Spanky And Our Gang with I’d Like To Get To Know You.

It took me four months of reading FireDogLake before I finally got up the nerve to post a comment which, if I remember correctly, started off with something about how I had not commented before.  I remember typing several comments before then but never having the nerve to press that submit comment button.  I finally worked up the nerve one afternoon and, with fingers and toes crossed that I wasn’t breaking some blog protocol by jumping into the middle of a conversation, I said fork it and pressed the forking submit comment button.

It still brings a smile to my face when I think of how warmly I was greeted by Mrs. K8 and then others in the comments.  Tonight, I want to reach out to those who have been hesitant to join us in the comments.   We’d like to get to know you.



I am a host of Late Late Night FDL music and cartoon posts in addition to spending most evenings behind the FDL backstage curtain flipping levers. Used to be a practicing heterosexual but now it appears that I am just a consultant. Avid reader since teaching myself how to read when four. Navy brat and first born so always thinking of the consequences. Double Irish so I usually got caught. Turned my misspent youth around and became that scary thing in your rear view mirror. Retired from the Fremont (California) Police Department after 24 years of sworn and non-sworn duties, including Patrol and the Crimes Against Persons Unit. Currently living on the North Oregon Coast with Token, cutest dog in the world (10 lb category), where I enjoy taking non-crime scene photographs, writing at my own blog, TwoTonGreenBlog, and working backstage at Firedoglake.
