    Default The Crusty Bunch

    Here goes my feeble attempt:

    To the tune of the Brady Bunch

    The Crusty Bunch

    Here's a story, Of a good jake,
    Who was riding a very lovely engine.
    All his crew had leather helmets, Like their Captain,
    The youngest one's a probie.

    Here's a story, Of an online forum,
    Which was read by many jakes on their own.
    They were crusty men, Wearing all leathers,
    but they were all alone.

    Till the one day when the captain joined us online
    and they knew it was much more than a hunch,
    That this group would somehow form an Association.
    That's the way we all became The Crusty Bunch,
    The Crusty Bunch, The Crusty Bunch.
    That's the way we became The Crusty Bunch.

    Default Seating Assignments.....

    BMI will also handle assigned seating for any of the IACOJ meetings. (With a crowd like this, somebody has to.) Adze, 26 and Temptaker will be separated by 2 seats or placed in another room.

    Seriously, just kidding. Great job Adze......what happened, did ya have a day off?

    With all this talent, maybe we should make a record for fundraising...

    Dave, are 2 seats going to be enough?

    That's actually not too bad, cuz we can still throw stuff at each other! Will you get ****ed if we play with a paper football during the meeting?

    I'm having a Maplewood flashback...Sing this to the tune of "Gilligan's Island".

    "Crusty Old Jakes"

    Just log right on and you'll see a thread
    A thread full of crusty jakes
    There's lots of crusty guys out there
    But these guys take the cake.

    The Cap was the might Gonzo man
    Who always gave three cents
    And with him was his old pal Adze,
    Whose thoughts are always bent.
    His thoughts always bent.

    The mutts all started getting rough
    The crusty jakes were tossed
    If not for the wisdom of JTL,
    They surely would be lost.
    They surely would be lost.

    The jakes hid out on the threads of this
    Of Firehouse.com
    With Captain G...and Motown too
    The superchef, and NJ...
    Truck sixty-six, and please don't forget that Steamer fits...
    Here with crusty old jakes!

    Yes!!! Now we can have two teams of two for tabletop football!

    Who wants to be on my team? Or do I get EastKY by default seeing how we are the two newest songwriters?

    Hey Adze, since 26 and I are both Canadian, maybe it should be us against you and EastKY. Looser buys the beer?!?!

    EastKyFF... that was great

    Speaking of Canadians...

    I am taking classes at the June Fire School at the CT Fire Academy...well, I had Canadians in my class from British Columbia yesterday. They've been here for the last 10 weeks (must have gone to the recruit class) and they decided to stay another week to take June Fire School classes. I know the chick was from Kamloops (or at least that is what her shirt said)...don't know about the rest of them.

    I'm not sure 26 is, although he was being considered due to his "explosive" personality.(Actually as far as I am concerned he is in....Hey 1835, can 26 join the BMI as our explosives guy or what?) I know Adze is....the hardest part of any job is taking on one of your own......

    Besides, who better than to control a BMI guy, then the BMI.....

    I asked the chick why she came to the CFA. She said because it was a very easy school to get into and that she had a couple of friends who went there before and they enjoyed it.

    Adze: That was a work of art.

    EastKyFF: Your days of maplewood training have finally paid off.

    Temp, me and you can sit together at the Canadian table. Not to many of us there, but we should be able to hold our own....

    Oh, be warned... I have another song (or two) in the works... just letting ya all know so you can get the ear plugs and ear defenders out and ready...
