Well, I for one, Jambo, like to know why a member no longer posts. I worry about people that just disappear like LG4NB. You may not care, but do not assume every one agrees with your opinion.

How do you know no one cares? And using your own logic, why should anyone care whether or not you care?

Thanks, bbbamI, I was going to type something like that. Also, many on this board really know others here, some thru posting, PMs, etc and a few have actually met others. It's not "just" a forum to many here.

Also, you can tell your plans to one of us blabbermouths.

Freebird hasnít posted since 7/13. She didnít swear me to secrecy so I can say that she will be scarce for a while. But donít worry, itís for fun, happy activities.

I was off the forum for about a week not long ago. When I got back on I had a PM from another member checking to see if all was well. I was really surprised that anyone cared or even noticed. It really brightened up my day.
You know who you are ....so thank you again.

Anyways, with 9000 posts, I have said my piece. I will continue as a lurker, but will not be posting. I may change my mind and come back, like CFB did, but that is doubtful.

Best luck to everyone on here, you're a bunch of great folks to be sure.......

I heard something about "invisible mode".......sounds intriguing, but I don't know how to do that.........

Peace,

I don't see any reason for not posting included in FD's original post, above. Saying that he has "said his piece" doesn't say much.

The thread has some dramatic effect for many of us, but I don't see that it is conveying much information about why he left. I agree with those who think he will be back in less than a month.

So does anyone know what happened with Lazy good for nothing bum? Just curious - he added a dose of color and drama to the mix. Not my choice for regular reading, but his information on birds, bamboo, and his Florida scene is an incremental loss.

And dang it Bunny, reinstall that wired down switch and come back!

Well here you go........number 4,000!


54 represented my current b'day so to keep the mod's from having to change it every year, I decided to just go with 52 which was my age when I retired. That's all folks. No more post from me!!! Not until after my nap.

No, but this thread might be enlightening, he posts at #21 and 30. I particularly like his post #30.

Back to w*rk..

Nah, I just talk a lot!

Do you suppose FD left because he didn't want to stick around and see my post count exceed his?

Perhaps! BTW, I noticed you're getting close to the big 100 countdown. How about starting a special thread so we can enjoy the experience together?
