    I am 65 in numerical years, 30 in mind years, 80 in body years :) I have been a member of other clans and because of age had a problem fitting in with them. I originally used the name Mad_Dog in some manner.

    I am insterested in COD, RTCW and RTCW-ET. Been playing FPS games since the first Wolfenstein 3D. In fact the original iD owner's mother and father were friends of mine.

    I have read both the FAQ, AUG, some of the news articles, other forums, etc.

    I am totally retarded . . . . . uh retired. Served 30 years in the US Navy and operated with many Australian and Canadian ships. Spent 2 years in Darwin at the Navy Communications Base in 1964, have visited Fremantle/Perth, Sydney, and Melbourne. So Austrailia and their natives are not new to me. I almost can speak their language (English by their definition). :D

    Originally from Texas, retired on the east coast of Florida and have my fair share of alligator stories to tell. Spent 7 years in Lousiana living in both Algiers and Marerro, real close to the Jean LaFitte swamp.

    Please consider me as a prospective member and notify me if I fit into any of the Gaming groups.

    Hey ragtime999,

    Another OTOG, you guys are coming out of the woodwork :lol: .

    Welcome mate, hope you enjoy your stay at TOG :D .

    I will definately see you in COD, great bunch of guys and gal. Once you have membership slide on down to the COD private forum, all the info you need to get into the comps and to get onto teamspeak. Jello63 is the Div Captain for COD.

    Catch you on the servers, cheers...

    You mean we've got Sheilas too, whoooooppppeee. :lol:

    Oh well, I'd get my head busted if I got too friendly. :cry:

    BTW, I'd sure like to find a list of the COD and ET servers.

    I've been to Wellington, but not Christ Church. Understand the sheep there are very obliging. Baaaaaaaaa :lol:

    As far as being over 60, I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was . . . . . as long as I take my Nitro and Viagra first.

    Hey mate, welcome!

    We have a number of 60+ members here, and a few 65+'ers as well, so you'll fit right in. Renegade can take care of you for RTCW-ET and Jello is your man for CoD.

    I'll make you a member right away, you should then have access to the private forums :)

    Howdy Ragtime999,

    Welcome to TOG!! I'm sure you will enjoy your stay here. The COD Spitfire squad is a great group of guys. Seek out MAX63, he can get you squared away there.

    See ya on the Battlefield. 8)
