Happy Birthday, Radish!!
Tue Jun 11, 2019 5:57 pm
  • Although we've had many 'hearts' of .Net, Aros, Rockhawk, Anguish, and now Wenhawk & TDhawk, but we've only had one 'soul' of .Net, and that was the great Radish.

    So happy birthday, Les, where ever you are. :irishdrinkers:

  • Heart stings have been pulled.

    I only met him 3 times but every time I was at his house I was trying to steal his Amber calendar.

    Old fart caught me every time.

    I hope Darlene is well.

  • Damn good guy and friend sorely missed. I am still so thrilled he got to finally see his Seahawks win it all, and wow, what a game to witness before moving on to his next adventure!

    And did I miss something about Ribeye? Did he pass?? He was such a class act.

  • I remember Ribeye saying he had to leave years ago due to business stuff.

    I remember hearing about Les the morning we were heading to the "hot" game in SD. It was kind of a precursor to the outcome of the game. I partied with him many times, shared a LOT of drag racing stories with him over the years.

    Totally missed and an example for many on here that need to class up.

  • Les' spirit will always be here. "Hippy Birdy" (his saying to posters here, which was hardly ever missed if you posted you birthdate on your profile) to him; wherever I hope he is enjoying his kickapoo joy juice (dangerous stuff that). He is missed!

    He was an interesting character, great guy, and straight up a funny guy to be around. I only met him once at at .net bash hosted by Aros at Belltown Billiards attended by SeaGal leader Amber who was beautiful and gracious and seemed to be enjoying hanging out with us .Net dweebs. I was sure Les was smitten with Amber as were all the rest of us. She even posted here a bit afterwards.

    Has anyone checked in on Darlene recently? She tolerated Les' obsession with .Net and she was a gracious hostess and part of many socials held back in the old days of this place at their home during TC. I hope she is well too!

    Les was known as The Radish at the end ,but was always Pithy Radish, Les, or Sir to those of us who had dealings with him. He was a tough but fair moderator who was a real Sheriff around here in the days when there were a few wild and crazy guys who posted a lot of rubbish that he corrected. You knew you were in deep water without a paddle when you got the 'Check your PMs' message notification.

  • Totally agree with the comment as the friendly supervision of Les, and his desire to make people feel at home here by remembering birthdays and other special moments. It made folks feel they were part of a real and special community, which we are.

    We are all fans of the Seahawks or at least of football here and as such we should avoid making comments which attack or could be construed as an attack of another poster. For sure there are personal things that arise between sometime friends here but in the end we all owe a duty to each other to be civil and polite. I disagree the place is becoming disgusting at all, but there needs to be a sober reflection by us all to avoid ad hominem remarks or intentionally unfriendly comments. After all it is possible to disagree without being disagreeable. We all should have learned that lesson from Les.

    In the end the place is what what we all make it. We all need to work at making it a better place.

  • The thread isnt about you. Keep it about Les, then, and not about your personal opinions on .net or it's posters.

  • I still have his PMs in my profile - I can't delete them. He always started out trying to talk crap about the Navy (he was a Coastie).

    We had some great discussions... he is truly missed.

    So do I. A one of a kind guy. The man had more “people skills” than anyone I’ve ever known.

    I’d be pissed at him for PM’ing me telling me to “cool it” when I’d go off half-cocked in a heated argument, by the end of the conversation he’d have me laughing my ass off. His skills to defuse a situation were amazing.

    A great man, and a legend here forever.

  • I am not sure his email account is still active but the last time I checked Darlene was responding to them. In the off chance she still is you can email Les' old account to say hello and let her know you are still thinking of them both. I am sure she would appreciate the sentiment.

  • Wrong forum. Radish isn't a Seahawk. We don't want to allow "frivolous posting" on the main forum, right, Peaches?
