    Since it seems like the last couple threads that I read people were knocking George, I thought I'd take this opportunity to thank him. A while back (years?) I asked for advice on here about fixing a small area of slippage around the eye of a deer. George was the only one to offer some good advice on the repair, which I've refined and used probably over a dozen times since then to fix not only small areas of thin hair slippage, but also scars, and other anomalies too. Your comments may not be for people with thin skin, but you are genuinely helpful to a lot of people on here. Thanks.

    I agree, While Sometimes I wanna choke the guy out.. I remember years ago when I was in germany and posted a picture of a deer.. He tore that thing to shreds.. Opened my eyes and encouraged me to do things different, try harder.. etc.. I listened.. been at it harder and harder ever since.. and never quit as this is what I like doing.. I still want to choke him out from time to time as his coments and the way he goes about it frustrates me.. but then i have to step back and know im dealing with george.. its all right..

    To tell the truth when ever I look at any of the critique post on here one of the first guy's that I look for to see what he thinks and suggest is George you always get a straight answer from him no matter how hard it may be to swallow at times and that's where you improve.

    When I first started reading on this forum, I said to myself, who in the world is this guy (George). After being on here a little while, I have noticed his honesty, as brutal as it maybe sometimes, is what makes him so valuable. I remember one of my first big questions on here. My first thoughts going into it were oh George is going to lite me up on this one, but it turned out he was very nice and honest the whole time.

    If you ever really need help with something, George will help you out one way or another. He is the kind of guy that would give you the shirt off his back if you really needed it. He also sits on a case of grenades, and don't mind throwing one in your direction if he feels it is needed. Can he be abrasive at times ? You bet. He also makes you think about what you are doing. So with that said, I think I will leave it at that before he lobs one at me for sending flowers. ;)
  10. Again I am the new guy, but in the short time I have been on here George has helped me more then once. Thanks again to all the guys that seem to save the day. As for the honest critiques, would think you post pics in here to hear the honest truth, fluff won't help anyone.

    George is someone I call a true friend. If I called him and said I need something, he would be the first in line...to tell me where I need to go to get it, lol. Thats a very accurate sentence, all humor aside though. He would treat me just like my grandpa wouldve and did a long time ago. George's heart is even bigger than his head. Those who have seen him know what I mean as reference. If anyone talks George down, I always say the same thing...yes, I hear ya! Hahaha, no, what I do say is, if you dont understand the world according to George, youre missing out on the good stuff (pun intended). When someone tells me in person they hate how George is so mean, I laugh, dial Georges number, and hand them the phone. Five, ten, twenty minutes later, they hand me the phone back and tell me all about their new best friend.

    As a moderator here, I sometimes grit my teeth reading a post where George is defending a point, as a captain stays with his sinking ship, and I think, George, cut your losses. But thats just him. I KNOW him, and I sometimes hear a snarl in his posts when I know darned well hes laughing. When he starts a reply with one of his famous retorts, like "Now I KNOW your momma dropped you" and then goes on with his opinion, hes laughing, not being mean. I know, Ive seen it. Ill tell you what though, if his abrupt manner in here offends you, give up taxidermy now, because the customers will eat your wimpy butt alive, by comparison.

    When George and I hang up the phone, we usually both say "I love you brother". I dont throw those words around a lot...

    Hey for all those that don't like George and wanted him to keep quiet. Say something nice about him. It works. Take care George, and don't let it go to your head. 3bears
