    Someone was bound to ask.

    I always figured he'd be posting every day until he went down with the ship.

    Then again I expected the same of Aristoshark.icon_confused.gif

    Southbeach probably got a short-term contract flying around some hellhole where they don't have wifi. That or he hasn't paid his phone bill.

    Sharky said he was going and he's gone, apparently. I'm sure he'll be back. At first I thought Marvin Martian might be him playing around, but subsequent events have made that seem very unlikely.

    Then why choose to go into Delete/Hidden mode? I haven't checked to see if his previous posts are still here, or if he's been totally erased by Admin. He's been banned for short periods in the past, this could be another of them. Though for what I can't guess, he hasn't been more offensive and in violation of TOS/TOU recently than he routinely is.

    I hadn't realized he'd gone into Delete/Hidden mode. I hadn't even realized he'd gone, until I read the OP. Your guess is as good as mine. Enjoy the interlude: Mark my word, one way or t'other, he'll be back!

    Correct, he always has returned in the past. Just when we're enjoying a respite and some calm moments here he reappears. Though sometimes initially as a sock, with a poached profile image. Veteran members may remember those details better than I do, and the RJers who called him out on it.

    And I presume it's Hidden/Delete when his Profile won't appear in Search Profiles. Unless he's been totally erased, and I doubt that. I should check if any of his posts remain, but I'm not sure which they are. Curiously enough, I don't track him as obsessively as he does me.

    He fell in love and ran off with Art_Deco's boyfriend. And now Southbeach is all "my husband" this and "my husband" that and I say "Southbeach, you are not married. You cannot call him your husband." And Southbeach says "Well what do you recommend?" And I say, "I don't know. How about benefactor?" But he says that's not romantic. He seems happy though. The last I heard he was sitting in a chair called the Southbeach recliner, wearing a kilt and a $5,000 watch.

    Actually one of my favorite pics. Down on Lincoln Road in South Beach, that several-block section known as the Mall because it's closed to all but pedestrians. It was featured in the Birdcage (though given an imaginary Hollywood treatment) when "Albert" goes morning shopping.

    That pic was taken right after I moved here permanently in 2007, you can tell by how much younger I look at 58 (and a bit trimmer). As for martinis, yes, I said that quote in another post, but tongue-in-cheek, naturally.

    In the world in which I was raised gin martinis really were de rigor for professional men. That and scotch on the rocks, which is what my Father preferred. And I really became quite a connoisseur, though never an indulger.

    Today gin doesn't like me, and I haven't had a martini in about 3 months, maybe more. I remember when I ordered my first gin martini, I was eating a steak dinner alone somewhere (I never drank any alcohol in the presence of my parents, even at dinners. I was always a little kid again with them. Even in my late 40s they never saw alcohol touch my lips, though they always drank in front of me, as they always had).

    I thought a martini tasted like carburetor cleaner (don't ask how I actually know that). But I was gonna tough it out, my adult & social duty as it were, as I posted elsewhere in half-jest. Just like I tried to learn how to smoke cigarettes in order to conform. That one I quickly rejected.

    But gin I managed, just a little at first. Until I developed a taste for it, and began to have preferences. Although how businessmen ever can function after the proverbial "3-martini lunch" defies my understanding. If I ever had 3 martinis under any circumstances they'd have to call 911. I certainly couldn't return to an office after lunch and be at all functional.

    Anyway, again thanks for that pic. Nice to see it again.

    Another of my favorite pics (without the text that again is not original). That's at a 1970s-theme costume party a few years ago, to raise money for HIV/AIDS charities. It's cropped down from a larger pic, that includes the COO of Florida's largest HIV/AIDS agency, now the CEO of another major general non-profit charity. We were all dressed silly, and having a great time.

    And I wasn't drunk for that pic, not with that prominent crowd. I was also conducting business, pushing our HIV/AIDS causes. I think when the event was over I finally had some drinks (all free as I recall).

    Then asked my partner to drive home, because I never get behind the wheel even a little tipsy. In fact, I may have gotten a little sleepy, I had been working for so long, up about 18 hours at that point, just a couple drinks hit me like a brick wall. We always overextend ourselves for these fundraisers, and then often don't get to fully enjoy them ourselves.

    I keep telling him we gotta stop, and just enjoy ourselves, let younger people do this stuff. And so what did we do a couple weekends ago? And again yesterday (Sat)? The same thing all over again. icon_sad.gif

    Now I have to go out and celebrate later with a few cocktails, which I'm not also supposed to be doing. Doctors can advise me, but the actions are mine

    The action of an alcoholic

    Naturally not a pic of me. And can you please explain what any of your ranting against me has to do with the topic of "whatever happened to southebeach1500"? You've gone off on this tangent of attacking Art Deco in a demented manner, that has no relevance to the thread topic. Perhaps to divert attention, and change the subject to take the pressure off your buddy? Or merely to derail this thread?

    Could you please explain?

    I never have been able to drink during the day, especially if the sun is out and hot or the result is a real buttfuck of a headache. It ruins the rest of my day.

    I did take grandson and new-ish girlfriend out Saturday night and had a couple of beers with big meal. Columbus Short North is jammed with people and if you had a buzz it would be long gone before you ever got back to your car, we were so far away.

    There's just no place to put cars other than the convention center area garages. At least there are now shuttles to haul students back and forth from OSU. Soon the entire stretch from campus to downtown will be party central.

    In some Army Officers clubs, where I usually would have lunch when in "garrison", they often served wine or beer. I was amused they allowed us to drink at lunch in uniform.

    Because strangely, back at work, daytime on-duty drinking was prohibited. I didn't drink at the Club during lunch anyway, I didn't want any of my bosses to see me doing that. Plus after lunch I usually went to the gym, either worked out or did a 2-mile run outdoors (many posts had a wooded course or a track nearby), came back for a swim if there was a pool, took the sauna, and returned to my office.

    Officers were granted rather generous lunch breaks, if we said we were taking "PT" (physical training), which I really did. Making drinking at lunch impossible.

    In fact, during my Army years I never drank at all Sunday through Thursday, because most weeks I was required to do organized PT 3 times a week at the crack of dawn. If I dared have a martini the night before I'd feel like I had sandbags tied to my legs the next morning as I was running.

    Yet oddly, every Friday after "Retreat" (the cannon shot that marks the lowering of the colors), we'd have Officers Call at the Club. And once a month a "Hail & Farewell" to welcome newly arrived Officers, and to say goodbye to those who were leaving for new assignments. Turnovers in the US Army of the '70s, '80s and '90s were very high. Then you could overindulge with command approval.

    But just a little. If you got sloppy drunk you could be officially reprimanded. In fact, I saw one male Lt. Colonel become offensive, with some insults to women, and on Monday he was relieved, and promptly submitted his resignation papers. So your career was always on the line.

    Yet again oddly, we also would have a formal "Dining In" for Officers only, in full dress uniform, even spouses couldn't attend. The only enlisted soldier permitted was the senior Officer's Command Sergeant Major (E-9).

    There were all kinds of crazy rules of the mess, for which you could be "fined" for violating. Fines would consist of performing some silly stunt, almost like a TV game show. You might have to sing a song, or do anything crazy imaginable. If our soldiers could have seen their Officers being so childish & stupid I'm sure they would have all deserted.

    And we all got shit-faced. You could mock and ridicule anyone you wanted, even the General, if one was there. Well, so long as it was laughable. You still had to watch your step, you had to know the bounds at all times, always like walking a tightrope. It was a weird, formalized way of letting off steam, from our normally highly regimented lives.

    I figured out Southbeach was gone when there wasn't a new post about Hillary's emails every 15 minutes.

    LOL! And don't forget Benghazi, and every other faux scandal about Hillary.
