I'm thinking that the "fisherman" is an avatar for optimism. 
 
Beyond that, I'm 'in the dark' as well.

Thanks for the laugh Tony. I do believe he and I both said that somewhere else once -- with the same result.
 
Now I'll just spend some time being sad.

Sorry for being cryptic. A poster who was banished from the site many years ago, not I-95, passed away yesterday. He had been gone from these boards for some time, so most would have no clue who he was. That picture, which I believe i-95 first posted, became his signature. I will miss him.

We fought like cats and dogs when he was posting, but he was a good man, with a wonderful sense of humor. His passing is a loss we shall recall for some time.

He did make quite an impression.  I believe all of his posts were deleted when he was banned.

Very nice. 
 
Does anyone else remember the hubbub when they switched the forum software from that version to the current one? Holy crap. You'd have thought that the Mayans had something to do with it.
 
Maybe that's where all the people CajunKing mentioned in the other thread went? They could never adapt to the new forum software. Holy cow....problem solved. Thank you, WayBack Machine!

Well Tony, as usual Clothier was right. There are no
"yummy" places to eat anywhere along the I-10 corridor.
 
He also was funny as Hell.

Guess someone has to ask the obvious, if everyone liked him so much who banned him, and why ?

Re:To a friend... 2013/12/12 21:16:58
Thanks for asking that flyseye. I was wondering that too. What a lovely essay his brother wrote about him. I know things can get a little touchy or even nasty at times but I have always thought of us like a family where we don't always see eye to eye but in the end have a common bond. As with flyseye, I don't know the details so I can't really make a judgment in this case. I have to say, though, that I am thankful for all of your comments, opinions and input, good and bad, and I do truly appreciate you all. I don't always have the time to post but Roadfood is always a comfort thing for me, particularly after a long day! So thank you to everyone, both present and long gone, for posting and reading my own posts!   ~Agnes

Clothier was not only brilliantly funny, he had the ability to skewer you by merely raising a virtual eyebrow. It was that virtual eyebrow that resulted in his being banned. Who banned him doesn't matter. Neither does the reason for his banning. It would serve no purpose to know the who and the why. Besides, it's more fun to remember his famous last Roadfood words:
                           
                             "You can't ban me."

I'll say this much, he truly deserved the ban. It was a tough decision though.
