well not in that way but as a poster.
This is just a vote of confidence in response to the pit thread a few weeks back in which our boy handy took a lot of flack about his rather unique posting style.
Maybe this would be better served in IMHO if so fine. Maybe no one much gives a shit. That’s ok too.
I just felt I needed to say it.
Yeah, newbies should be given some leeway before being flamed.
Am I the only person who hears Bow Wow Wow singing “I Want Handy”?
Now I’ve got that stuck in my head!
I was thinking more of James Taylor singing “handy man”:
"I’m busy 24 hours a day,
I say a lot but I have nothing to say,
I post lots of stuff, baby…
I’m your handy man!
Come-a come-a come-a come-a come come,
yeahhhhhhhh ten thouuuuuuuuusand…"
Handy is cool, even if he doesn’t laugh at my ASL joke. Well, maybe you have to see it. American Sign Language, see it, get it?
I have no problem with handy, sometimes he even makes me laugh!
He has some interesting and unique viewpoints.

you don’t suppose he’s any kin to Jack Handy do you?
I like handy too. He amuses me in an “off the cuff” type of way. He’s one person I don’t think I could ever flame. Some people take this place too seriously.
I think he’s gotten more coherent since the pit thread.
Well, thank you for your compliments (They are compliments, right?). I haven’t read the Pit thing yet, Sue. I thought I would wait until the people who wrote in it were feeling down them jump on them. Just kidding.
It’s true, I do hear another drummer. Also, once one has become deaf after being hearing their world is more visual & the board doesn’t do messages in pictures. I get a lot less information, so I often post sentences missing words & bits of information most people would think should be there.
I also come from a really nutty family.
Yesterday in sign class we had to talk about our ancestors. I said my grandfolks were brotehr & sister & owned a beer brewery, got real drunk, had sex & had ten kids, 5 japanese & 5 chinese. The chinese kids were deaf. Suffice to say, everyone in the class knew it was a fake story
I like handy too. He’s rough around the edges…just the ways I likes 'em. He rarely holds anything back.
Handy…I need to know…how old are you?
JN, as I like to say to the young women who ask that question ‘sorry, I don’t give lessons!’
