Skip to comments.This Day In History - DASHING DASHER JOINS FREEREPUBLIC (vanity)
Posted on 07/22/2005 7:33:14 AM PDT by pissant
On this day in 1933, Wiley Post touched down his airplane in New York, becoming the first pilot to fly solo around the globe!
On this day in 1934, Public Enemy #1, John Dillinger, was gunned down in the streets of Chicago.
And on this day in 2004, the one and only Dashing Dasher, after slamming down 4 martinis, signed up on FreeRepublic.
These historic events have much in common. Wiley Post was a brave pilot, risking life and limb in a rickety single engine plane. Dasher is FR's resident pilot racer, tormenting her male colleagues above the western fruited plains. A Calamity Jane in goggles!
And Dillinger was a notorious gang leader, surrounding himself with violent criminals and ne'er do wells. Dasher too has become a gang leader on FR. She has lead JimRob's beloved website into dark places that make the upstanding citizens here hide the women and children.
She is many other things as well, too numerous to list in full. But they include: Conservative infiltrator in liberal San Fran, Toughie NJ bodyguard for those who get harrassed, Unofficial FR Dominatrix (with a growing clientele), and most importantly, the subject of poems and limericks from her adoring fans.
So on this Friday, July 22, 2005, let's raise our glasses and offer a hearty toast to this east coast bred California girl, and thank her for settling down in our corner of the world!
I guess I should PING you.
And nothing has been the same since.....
Love ya more than gravy.
Thanks for all the laughs and the help ;o)
Happy anniversary Dasher, we love you.
Many more happy returns...
A year? Wow, it only seems like five.
I'd like to thank the Academy, The JimRob and The JohnRob, Pissant for making it so welcoming and fun, JRBC for being my pal, the RWOS Ping List for not making me think I'm the only one that growls when neanderthals speak, and many more of you who I will think of and type of later.
I am leaving for an all day meeting - but will be back later today to read what you write - so, be nice. I know where you live!
Hugs to all my FEllow (and FEmale) FReepers!
It's been one heck of a year.
Breaking hearts and egos wherever she goes. ;-)
Piss, Christopher Walken told me to tell you that "Piss, I got yer Ping right here."
And Dash is one all around great girly. :-)
Here's a lovely rose for a lovely lady!
Holy diabolical plots!
Welldone, and many more years ahead on FR!
Love is a Many Splendored Thing..........
