    Really. This is what it is?

    You guys (and gals) saw an easy mark, eh. Not only a newbee, but an Iowegian to boot.

    I recently joined the forum and I have to say, thank you for the very warm welcome.

    But then this electrified panda bear comes along and starts wondering about some sort of shirt, and whether or not I had one.

    Thinking about it on and off over the weekend, I did a search on the forum to see what I was missing. Looking through many posts, I was still unclear.

    As I was putzin' around this morning at work, not really wanting to get going, the thought popped back into my mind.

    Thinking that a google search would only route me back to this forum (as it seems to be some sort of joke here, that I still don't know if I understand or not), I hit the images function.

    I then look down and muttered to myself, you've got to be kidding me. I swear to you all that I did not know what this term was when I left the house, and it was only after what I seen on the screen that I started laughing in disbelief.

    So, Mr TWilght, to answer question, I do believe that I do. In fact, I have had it since about 1994 (about the same time I enrolled for all those beer drinking courses at USD). Not sure if they are technically "Hickories", but I have the same shirt in green and black also; Cutting edge, huh? (read. boring)

    But maybe not a "Hickory Shirt". You be the judge.

    Does this count?



    And if so, am I in?



    however, I am yet naked as to owning a TW.

    I know, right.

    The last time I was in Ft Meyers, my brother (resident), happily, made it know to me, and everyone else on the street within earshot, that not only were my legs the whitest, but I was the only one wearing socks.



    I was wondering how the panhandlers by the beach knew to single me out.

    Nice shirt Jeff, you qualify! Just need a TW eventually, and maybe a set of Plumbstraight's red TW suspenders.

    THAT....was how the Apple Wars began.

    You know Dryden, I am growing a bit weary of this BS apple war. I am not a big apple eater but do have a couple favorites from right here in NY that I do like, Empire is one. All these bloviators out on the left coast do a lot of bad mouthing but never once has any of them sent us a sample of these fictitious, Washington State Fuji apples that are supposed to beat our apples all day long. They apparently can only make it as far as Moab but not past the Mississippi. I'm thinking these left coasters are drinking too much apple cider that has fermented!

    Good description — and just one of many names we use to refer to the resident Panda. Just chuck him a few Bamboo shoots and the occasional bun, and he’ll be eating out of your hand — he likes apples too. (Having said that, it’s a good idea to count your fingers afterwards).

    There’s another story about the “electrified” bit — but then he’s always been a “grounded” kind of guy ……….

    As for “Hickory shirts” — my understanding of said items is that they must be made in the USA, and that “buttons all the way down the front” in some way “diminishes” the over-all effect. I’ve never entirely understood the principals involved, although I figure anyone who rides a TW is bound to be a little “eccentric”.

    The “button thing” may have something to do with “dusty rides” — but my research on such matters is somewhat incomplete. As you can appreciate, from this side of the pond, it’s more to do with “observation” than “experience”.

    Anyway — anyone who can get away with referring to an “electrified panda bear” gets my vote ……….
