It’s hard to believe, but it’s been two years to the day since we lost our brother-in-arms, LC EFA. We’ll be sending up a toast to him, as he’s swapping tales and getting our ancestors drunk on his homemade rum.
Here he is a few years ago, happily cradling his twins. He was such a good and proud daddy.
Rest in peace, brother.
I did not have the honor of knowing the gentleman. However, perhaps he’s still watching over things.
Damn I miss him.
When I worked during every God forsaken hours imaginable, I could always buzz him and he’d be up and about in our various chatrooms. He was always up for a fun, irreverent time at the expense in numeral inferiour groups and individuals. 🙁
Like RR I got to know EFA over the late night hours when I was running a support center for the company. We wasted tons of useless time talking about everything under the Sun.
Damn I miss him!
Prayers sent to his family at this difficult time.
Anyone still have his rum recipe?
G_D, bless him and those that knew him.
I will do this in honor of EFA!!!
One of my favorite days of the year. I (heart) going into the ethnic Irish bars and order a black and tan infuriating the Micks.
Then I’ll start in with the Kennedy jokes..
Rad, here’s one for you to try out on ’em:
Q: “Why don’t they put showers on any of the Kennedy boats or airplanes?”
A:“Because they always wash up onshore!”

What part of the Vineyard do the Kennedys miss the most? The runways!

A rapist, a murderer, and a junkie walk into a bar. The bartender says, “Good morning Mr. Kennedy.”
And the good times continue. Benjamin Netanyau, in spite of Obama, won reelection and apparently did so in a landslide. News reports are saying he won’t have to form some sort of coalition government. Il Douche was so angered over the news that he missed an easy putt. And a true Kennedy Story. My father once dated one of the… Read more »
OK, 3 more. Q: How do you clear a room of Kennedys? A: Demand a paternity test. Q: What’s the perfect gift for a girl dating a Kennedy? A: Swimming lessons. A guy walks into a bar and says “Gimme a ‘Joe Kennedy’.” Bartender asks “What’s a ‘Joe Kennedy’?” “You give me some bootlegged rum and my family nurses it… Read more »
Telling jokes, of any type, is the perfect tribute to EFA. Can’t believe it’s been two years. I still remember how he was the absolute center of the party at the Floriduh Rottfest he attended, and that’s quite a feet considering the attendees. Bangie had a real soft spot for him, it was hard not to. Rest In Peace Eric,… Read more »
Two years you say? Damn! A great sense of humor and he swung a mean cluebat.
There will be a glass of scotch and a toast in his honor here in the doghouse tonight.
EFA, gone, but not forgotten. Damn, but chatting with him on the IM in the wee hours was fun.
We shared so much in common. Two rednecks separated by two hemispheres, but still so much alike.
Fair ye well, my friend. You are missed.
It’s been 2 years already?
Damn, EFA. Why do the good ones always have to go first?
Oh, and a Kennedy Joke:
If you’re ever in Dallas, order a JFK Special.
It’s really only a pint of draught, but you have to blow the head off before you drink.
Kept saying I’d go see him..RL kept getting in the way. Miss him and want to come see so many of you.. cant leave wife alone now. Lost more than a few friends over the years I would have given anything to meet face to face…:(
Maybe one day…

Yeah, but it’s REALLY REALLY fuckin’ funny!
The divining rod industry is mulling changing the name of their namesake device to a “Kennedy Stick” because they always find the water.
Elsewhere things are reported to be happening. Stay tuned for fresh commentary next month!

Management is too busy digging fallout shelters and stockpiling potassium iodide tablets to blog, which is smart since Queen Barry is doing everything he can to make sure Iran gets the bomb.
Exactly. It is now 3/28 and much has happened. Netanyahu won and Obama threw a hissy fit. He called the presidents of Iran, N. Korea, and Venezuela to congratulate on their victories in “elections.” But not Netanyahu. Then, his administration is considering removing their veto on the paleoswinians call for a country in the UN. And THEN he releases a… Read more »
