View Full Version : Spin off: Pictures you associate with other Borderers

08-06-2013, 08:41 AM
As I was reading, and replying to, FP's thread about avatars and signatures, I thought about how I associate particular Eagles photos with various Borderers. It could be that they have used the pic for a long time as an avatar, or that it seems to fit the 'vibe' of that person, or that it reminds me of a particular concert/shared experience, or simply because I know how much they love it. I thought it might be fun to post our thoughts - and to post the pics, of course!

So, which photos do you associate with other Borderers and why? You may want to post multiple times as we go on! :)

Ooh, good topic! I'm off to work now, but will be back later!

The one that sticks out to me the most right this minute is the topless picture of Glenn. Always, always, always think of Dreamer whenever I happen across it.

Any pic of Jimmy Page I associate with Willie, Heck, Why don't I just associate Jimmy himself with Willie? :hilarious:

If this is meant to be about Eagles photos as Troub said, I am not honestly that observant. I will say that I associate 70s Glenn with Brooke & HFO Glenn with Soda. There are a couple of late 70s softball shots of Glenn I associate with Molly.Perhaps I need to revisit the birthday threads & see if I can pick up a theme. Is that cheating?

I will be very interested to find out if anyone associates anything specific with me. I am not giving any hints. :pimp: (This week's avatar & anything else I took myself go without saying & I assume that also goes for other people; although I must say this. A couple of the photos I took myself, including this avatar, I am very proud of indeed).

Although she doesn't come around much anymore, I think I will always associate this picture with Ticky. She was such a fan of the poncho and coonskin cap look. :laugh:


Oops, no coonskin cap here!

Dreamer (I will save everyone else the trouble):

Can you tell I am working my way backwards through the birthday threads? I don't want to leave any regulars out but in a couple of cases I am honestly not sure what they would want me to post. :blush:

GA: She took this but I feel I should post it.


Ive always been a dreamer

Well I made a similar remark in another thread about always being associated with Smokin' Hot - poor, poor pitiful me! :grin:

FP covered a lot of the ones I was thinking of. Sometimes it is hard to associate a single picture with those of you who change your avatar frequently. But, I will say, every time I hear the words in Secular Praise - "don't go to church, but I feel the weight", I think of Willie and her banner; same goes for "I dream I'm on vacation cause I like the way that sounds" from Last Good Time In Town ... I always think of Prettymaid and her signature line.

I know there are others that will come to mind after I give this some thought, but these were some of the first ones that came to my mind.

I am so proud to be associated with that great line from Last Good Time in Town! It's the one thing I've never changed in the five years I've been here. I love the silly idea that a vacation could be something you do as an occupation, and I dream about it every day! ;-)

I don't really make that many visual associations, but since FP asked, I do sometimes think of her when I see this photo:


08-07-2013, 12:53 AM
And this for Troubadour, I sometimes think of her when I see this one (as well as the Thoreau sign one):


I'll try to think of more!

08-09-2013, 08:50 AM
I do have to add, that whenever I look at most pictures of our guys, that I always associate certain Border members with those band members. Know what I mean? I can see a new great picture of Don and think, "oooh, Lou is going to love this" or see a pic of Don F with a guitar and think how much Austin will really dig it.

Here's another one that is one of my faves but every time I see it I think of Lou also because I know she loves this look (as was stated above) on Don.

of course anything tbs is zelda......

not anyone in paticular just everyone I see cause i know how she enjoys him..

This is a good question for me to pop back on the board with! Because my closeness is limited to only a few Borderers (not on purpose... I just keep straying!!) this will be easy.

Glenn aka Sugar - VA :drool:

Henley - HenleyHoney for unknown reason :headscratch:

Felder - My boy Austin (Walshfan) of course! :guitar:

Timothy B - Zelda B Schmit :hilarious:

Walsh - Austin again! :rockguitar:

Adam Lambert - Topkat :singer:

Fleetwood Mac or any person associated with - Soda :steviesmack:

Jimmy Page and Duff McKagan - Willie my sister from another mother :grooving:

A couple of other things... when i see Glenn from the BBC video of Peaceful Easy Feeling, or any 70's long haired picture of him, I think of Brooke because we share that same love for him in those days and when I see Glenn in any picture associated with golf, I think of Soda.

08-18-2013, 01:58 AM
I'm flattered to be associated with both Fleetwood Mac and Glenn, LP! Thanks! GnR reminds me of you and Willie both, but especially a photo of a shirtless Slash. ;)

You're welcome and it's true! I watched a good documentary on Fleetwood Mac a few weeks ago and the entire time it aired, you were running across my mind. lol

And I am beyond flattered to be thought of when GNR is mentioned! :headbang:

08-18-2013, 03:36 AM
Thanks, Liz! Those guys for sure are my top 2!


Soda - Stevie/Lindsey/FM

Brooke, VA, GA, GL, OM13 - Glenn

FP - Glenn (current era)

HH, Troub - Don H

PM and Mustangkim - Joe

LP - Slash, DJ Ashba

TBF - Jimmy Page, Ben Orr, Sweet

Zelda, Topkat, Sadcafe, SG - Tim

Whitcap, GS - Randy

Pueblo47 - Bernie


I apologize in advance if I've forgotten anyone!

08-18-2013, 06:15 AM
Thanks, Liz! Those guys for sure are my top 2!

TBF - Jimmy Page, Ben Orr, Sweet

Oh, Austin. You get me to drooling over guitars with your exuberance. Or is that drooling over the guitar players....? Nevermind!

Totally forgot Orr and Sweet for Willie! That's two more reasons why she's my sister from another mother.

I associate DF with topkat not tbs .
Isnt that funny

08-18-2013, 06:41 PM
I'm chuffed to be associated with those rugged, outdoorsy pictures of Don! :inlove:

I will post more when I have more time, but this one always reminds me of GA because I know how much she loves it:


This one reminds me of FP:


This reminds me of Peek (after a long conversation we had when I was over in the States about how much she loves this Glenn picture!)


This one reminds me of Soda. She used it as an avatar once, I believe, and I always loved it. I associate quite a few of the On the Border Glenn shots with her (as well as HFO, of course.)


This reminds me of PM because I know she loves it, as do I:


And this is one that reminds me most of TBF: (along with a rugged pic of Tim that I can't find right now!)


08-18-2013, 06:59 PM
Troub, thanks for associating that photo with me because I absolutely love it. It sums up a lot of things about the two of them & how I feel about the two of them. :grouphug: Mind you, the one just below... :thud:

08-19-2013, 12:22 PM
Troub! You know me too wall! But thanks, I do indeed love that one, and Peeks too! As well as all the others too of course!

This one reminds me of you!


Loads remind me of FP and Soda but I'll try to do justice to one each!



Because it was one of the few that managed to come out of Niagara Falls


Because I associate it with her being there! Although I know Soda has been to a LOT of Glenn :heart: gigs!

08-19-2013, 06:59 PM
To be fair, there was only one blurred photo at Niagara Falls. I was not able to take more than one photo on the first night (see signature). The blurred one on the second night is at the keyboard & then I gave up until I got to the front (see above, my avatar & there is one more).

But if we are going to do that GA, this reminds me of you:
