I wanted to send CFB a Christmas present, and sent him a PM, but I got no reply.

I think he must have the PM messages sent to a junk mailbox or spam box or something. It took him a while to respond when I PM'd him (many moons ago I think). Someone here might have his email address and they can PM it to you perhaps (I don't, sorry).

Bunny clearly liked it here, and he liked the adulation that he received. I would guess that something changed in his life or in his attitudes that made it hard for him to continue as before. He likely would just as soon not talk about it, or lie about it. So he is gone.

The guy was sure a fountain of information!

I think in his farewell post he explained the reasons for his departure rather thoroughly.

Maybe so. It could happen! It is definitely a lay the blame where he wanted to type of post. There have been other posters who periodically told everyone what was wrong with them, and how the world (or board) had failed them. The Bunny was not a bad troll himself. Remember the mortage discussions that never ended?

If I ever disappear, you'll all know what has happened to me. Los jefes kicked me off!

Wonderful fantasy, but I think the last young woman with a Birkenstock fetish ceased being young about 1990.

How did you know I go around with my backpack all the time? Last night I went to the opera; I wore my cashmere overcoat but also my backpack. I can't leave home without it.

There was an article in USA Today yesterday about David Letterman's preference for "natural" women, which means he likes flannel shirts and jeans on his girls--and no makeup I guess. He wouldn't like me then. However, Haha has some competition for these PNW women I see.
Not so odd as I had a friend who's husband wanted her to wear flannel nightgowns at night instead of anything thin and frilly. Her mother whispered that to me once in the kitchen while she almost fell on the floor dying laughing. Lost contact with them, so maybe they went to the PNW, too.

Now, Haha, about that backpack over a cashmere coat...........

I think I read that Seattle was recently voted US's worst dressed city.
