As you shop this holiday season, please remember to use the forum's Amazon.com link (listed in the menu as "Amazon Link") to add items to your cart and purchase them. The forum gets a small commission from every item sold and the commission increases based on the number of items sold in a month. (So even buying a 99 cent MP3 helps!) Bonus this year: Amazon has announced FREE SHIPPING through the holidays!!

Additionally, the forum gets a "bounty" for various offers at Amazon.com. For instance, if you sign up for a 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime, the forum will earn $3. If you create a wedding or baby registry, the forum earns $3. And creating an Amazon Business account will send a $15 commission our way.

Your personal information is completely private, I only get a list of items that were ordered/shipped via the link, no names or locations or anything. This does not cost you anything extra and it helps pays the operating costs of this forum which continue to go up as our commissions have gone down. Thank you for your support and happy holidays!! --Deborah

  • In Memory of Ned T Elbows

    I do not keep a calander with important dates to remember. In fact, I have a problem now days remembering important items. I would not forget if I had an important date, but it has been so long since I had a date, I have given up on it ever happening again.

    With that said. I was reflecting on the past recently, and realized that there has been no mention of one of the truest Lions fans ever. I suspect that the record of recent has him uneasy in his grave but, I truly miss the wit and wisdom that he shared with regularity. I also am still in awe on how he could put a detractor in his place with a single sentence.

    I's be wishin my fallen comrade and cyberbud wuz still amongst us.
    I long for a Lions team that is consistently competitive.

      Yes he was. I wish I got a chance to interact with him more.

              Reading his posts reminded me of the scene in "A Christmas Story" when he gets the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring. After I made it through every sentence I felt like I decoded a secret message. He was very entertaining.

              Peace to you, Ned, and your family.

                RIP..Ned. Every time I would come upon one of his posts, I felt like I was wrapped in a blanket next to the fireplace on a snowy cold winters night. I am sure there wasn't one post from Ned that I did not read At least twice. No one ever doubted Ned, no one ever disagreed with Ned, We simply read his wisdom and silently noded our heads in agreement.

                      Ned T. Elbows was a former poster on the freep forum a few years back. His wife came on the forum one day to inform us that he had died suddenly of a stroke or brain annurism. We were all shocked. Ned was generally liked. (I guess Shark liked him more than most) He used to post in a most unusual manner, purposely using bad grammar --reminiscent of an old & wise gentle codgerly dude-- but making good points in virtually every post. Most times, one would have to read them more than once to get what he said. Several forum members had a Lions jersey made with Ned's name on the back and had it framed in tribute to him. It's nice that every now & then someone creates a thread in his memory.

                        Ned was the man. Funny, and his posts were very interesting if you could figure out what he was saying. Great guy in person as well.

                            I came to W/C after Ned had passed, so I never had the pleasure of posting with him or of meeting him in person.

                            But because of the friendships he had formed with the "old timers", I felt as if I knew him.

                            RIP Ned! I know you are missed very much every day by your family and friends.

                              Ned was one of the few people who was on at 3:oo/4:00am in the morning and it was always nice chatting with him when I was on midnights. I always remember the first time I met him and his two wives and the night we spent. Great guy.
