:)

Time to elect a new BROTM for August. Who do you think would make a good positive Rat Of The Month.l? Ideally someone who will contribute fun and interesting posts during their reign... Please place your nominations here and I will post a poll in a few days.

(Remember that I will send something nice to the BROTMOTY.)

L.W. Baxter - that boy has been in fine form, of late!

Plus, as BROTM, I expect we'll be treated to new songs/performances, featuring our own denizens. Could be wrong on that last bit.

Doesn't a candidate first need to post in the bilge?;)

Whooo hoo!

Bobby of Tulsa

So, as a friend of mine said, you could make history here. The only bilge rat that has been banned twice and resurrected twice. No Thank you Please, it only makes me sneeze. I do not need this.

Bobby of Tulsa

I appreciate that. It would be more difficult this time around, really hard anymore to post anything positive or uplifting.

On very rare occasions, the invisible man's posts should be preserved

I second Yeadon. He knows, is non-controversial, and is building a great boat. He does post in the bilge on occasion.

John of Phoenix
07-27-2015, 08:24 PM
Non controversial? You wish.

Yeadon
07-27-2015, 11:25 PM
Bilge rat quality has fallen way off if some guy who never even posts in this dump gets nominated for BROTM. If nominated, I will not campaign. If elected, I will not post.

Part of the ship, part of the crew...

There must be a third line to that. Something that rhymes.

seanz
07-28-2015, 12:21 AM
Not necessarily, not with your creative flair.

Yeadon
07-28-2015, 12:28 AM
That is not a question.

They didn't listen to me and they may not listen to you, but they like you. If there is any joy to be found in this, know that if you are nominated I will join you and will not vote.

Yeadon has declined.


Indeed he has, his poetry was once a thing of rare beauty.

I'm sure he share some interesting pictures of his upcoming adventures if he was BRoTM.

I nominate Lew.

Virgin Gal
07-28-2015, 08:26 PM
In that case, I second FredZ. (We need chestnut seedlings if they'll grow here! )

John of Phoenix
07-28-2015, 08:33 PM
Lew, tells me that life is too tumultuous to properly serve at this time. I therefore withdraw the nomination for the time being.

Seems this is not the best month for rats.:)

Spin_Drift

Well, well! Looks like the local rats don't want to play the game this month. Maybe we'll skip it, maybe not. Ho-hum, yawn..

Sheesh :(

If candidacy required a banned status we wouldn't have any problem selecting candidates this month.
