Bradley is OLD ENGLISH

nor a field of dreams . . .
. . . but I am getting a little older . . .
Its my trailname that I aquired for wearing a ponytail on top of my head, sortof like pebbles flintstone, I needed to keep my hair out of my face and it wasn't long enough for a regular ponytail
It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.
Ok, here goes. No one calls me Little Ray. Well not really . . . anymore. There was for a period of time when people sometimes called me Little Ray, but that was toward the end.
Back in the late 90's I worked in a bar/restaurant out in western Maryland. I worked there for 2-3 years. I liked it, but it did not always show I guess. Toward the end of my time there some of the patrons called me Little Ray because well, yes . . . I was a little ray of sunshine. Sarcasm aside I was okay with it, but again it did not always show.
That was years ago, and I have moved on, living in Belgium now, and I have very little contact with the people there outside of an occasional email. Well, sometimes I look back on those times, remember dear friends and I think I should have gotten out more into the woods of western Maryland.
Now, I have found this community - people whom I might one day also call dear friends. And so, when registering for the Hammock Forums, with dreams of getting out more, I thought about a forum name and decided on it - Little Ray.
Thanks for letting me share this with you all.
If a launch to take out point is rated as an overnighter, it will take me 3 days. If you see me using a paddle it’s only because I need to move to the side of something I’m drifting up on. Why be in a hurry to get past all the great scenery, and when you are moving slow, quiet and motionless the wildlife ignore you.
My ego said, SURE you can.
Half way in my body said OH NO YOU CAN'T
Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.
Battboy with 2 t's because I'm an ex army ranger from 3rd ranger battalion. In ranger school the instructors call the candidates that are from a ranger battalion "battboys".
Not really all that of an original name for me. I kinda borrowed it from my brother (or maybe borrowing it back?) from when he was deployed in 2005. 8-9-10 is when me and my fiance got together.
