Very interesting forum. I look forward to reading the many threads. I have a fondness for cannons, well anything that goes bang and I have a graybeard.. I live on the west coast (wet coast) of Vancouver Island.
Welcome to the GBO Forums. We are glad that you are here. There is a lot of reading to catch up on. Get yourself a strong cup of Joe and jump right in.
I will admit, I instantly read your "graybeard" as "graveyard". Go back and read that in context with what you wrote. Wouldn't THAT be an interesting thread.
It's early in the a.m. here (you woke up earlier than me this morning). My coffee hasn't kicked in yet. Apparently, the left over brain cells from yesterday are still firing...no telling what they will think today, but it is looking kind of "edgy".
