This is a guy's only forum. No girls allowed. Male bonding time.

In here we can leave the seat up, drink from the carton and talk about manly things without fear of the ladies butting in. You know how they can be.

  • What man things do you like to do with your friends?

    On Some morning my friends and I take a 1 to 3 mile hike on Occanechee Mountain (actually a big hill). We take our dogs too.
    Glendower: I can call spirits from the vasty deep.
    Hotspur: Why, so can I, or so can any man;
    But will they come when you do call for them? Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part 1, Act III:

    go with the flow the river knows . . .

    Frank

    I do not know, therefore everything is in pencil.

    I like target shooting, building things, tending a fire in the fireplace, and long walks on the beach.


    (OK, not so much the walks on the beach )
    "Neighbor, how long has it been since you’ve had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili?”

        Hmmmm... target shooting is with other men, or with my wife... the tending a fire is either alone or with my wife and/or family, and the "building things" is usually a solo activity.

          Make fun of each other relentlessly, fault each other for the smallest things, and karate chop their throats when I run out of witty comebacks.

            Only about half of the tech conversations we have end that way.

              I used to love to go dip netting with the guys, but few of us are still fit enough to do it. I certainly am not.
              Micah 6:8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

                If I might ever so politely offer some scriptural advice....

                  Sounds boring, so I'll file your advise away for the next 30 or 50 years when throat chopping gets dangerous.

                    Hmm... I'm not sure I do much of anything with other men. Help them when they ask, that's about it. Outside of a bi-weekly small group I actually don't meet up with men on any sort of basis. :shrug"

                      I love "church work days" with our men. We often invite men who seem only to come because their wife comes, and I usually find a compelling reason to "need them". One guy was a backhoe operator, and we needed to dig up a gas line for the city to inspect, so I asked him if he'd help out. He ended up being a really great guy, we had a lot of fun clowning around, but getting the job done, and he became a WILLING attendee to Church.
