Well, I have to agree with P-Diddy. FTRPLT's avatar pic is a military jet plane... so I just always assumed...

I personally went with a little less cryptic approach. In my case, "Tim in Ohio" means I am a guy named Tim who resides in Ohio. You prolly knew that though. Wink

My full name is Brenton Andrew, BrentonA just kinda stuck I'm not sure why. I have it on a couple of guitars as well.

I never knew that was someone's tag on here. I had always seen it after something that was said in a humorous context. Maybe I was just reading too much into it!

Yep!! FTRPLT= Fighter Pilot. I had to quickly think up a password (long expired!!) for a financial account several years ago. FTRPLT just popped into my head. I started using this nickname on the old JR board and just kept it as we evolved to BoB. And, yes, I "were one," flying the F-4 Phantom for 18 years followed by the F-16 Viper for 5 years. Check Six, keep your head on a swivel, survive to fight another day Laughing There are only two types of aircraft....Fighters...and targets lol! FTRPLT

FTRPLT,

Thank you for your service and keeping us safe. I'm an Air Force veteran as well although my job was not as glamorous.

Yes I was, 120 degrees in the shade and I enjoyed every minute. Those were the days.

Hey I wanna know what Piet Binsbergen stands for... of course it could be something like:

Who is Piet Binsbergen?" you might ask. Well, let me tell you. Piet Binsbergen is the third generation Dutchman who refurbishes and repairs Van Hunks' Pietenenpauw pipes. (Van Hunks was the fellow who beat the devil in a smoking contest whilst sitting on the slopes of Table Mountain in Cape Town many years ago.) Legend has it that every time the “smoke” hangs over Table Mountain, the devil and van Hunks are at it again. Piet Binsbergen is in service of Captain van Hunks, refurbishing, restoring and servicing his pipes before every contest. No, this is not quite true. Jan Pietenpauw did not carve Van Hunks' pipe nor did Piet Binsbergen restore any of them, but he did work on that famous calabash of one Sherlock Holmes after Pietenpauw painstakingly created it!

Now for those of us who know, Sherlock Holmes never smoked a calabash. In fact, he never even existed!... and neither did Jan Pietenpauw or Piet Binsbrgen back then.

But in all South African legends, there has to be a hero and a Dutch Aquintance.

Tim.... well done Mate!!!!
you let the cat out the bag........ you bumped into my website by the looks of it!
It is still a work in progress, that is why I have not made it known to the brothers yet!! I have been refurbishing & repairing pipes for a couple of years now all by word of mouth. I decided to put up a site last month to see how it would go!
Well done for cracking the code brother!!!

Now that Tim has cracked the code.........
