Please check in.
This is Elsie in Ohio.
Let's see who is still around.
Elsie in Ohio ./.
Present and accounted for. I check in every few days. Not much action here since the change.
Mary Scott checking in, I do so miss everyone and all the chats we had !! Happy Holidays to everyone still here.
Redmink here too.
Whatcha doin' Elisie?
I'm like a bad penny, keeps turning up from time to time. Onwards and upwards folks.
24 days to get the decorations up.
I'm all Christmas decorated inside the house & the tree is up. Lights are going up outside Wednesday or Thursday. I Love Christmas !!
Just waiting for the day when the Almanac can afford a REAL forum lol.... Merry Christmas everyone...
Forum the way we USE to have it. No skimping here. I will start with $1.00. I'm here too. But not as much as before. Emily
Hey everyone. Mike G. checking in. Here in Albuquerque it's starting to feel like winter. Been doing a lot of birdwatching and looking at my calendar waiting for baseball season to start up. I hope everyone is doing well. I don't post on the forums a lot but I do read all the topics. Happy Holidays from the beautiful desert southwest.
Hi Mike G.,
I remember a winter in Las Cruces in the late 50's where we had a huge snow ... but the weather was moderate, not your howling northern-style blizzard.
The neighbors thought my mom was nuts as she hung out the laundry to dry (she was from northern Minnesota).
Thanks for thoughts of the Southwest!
We decorated on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. It took most of the day but we are all done, will take them down a day or so before New Years.
Hi, I'm Joanie in Ocean City, Maryland.
Not sure what to make of the forums here, since there's so little activity. I do enjoy this site. I see that others have commented on the "old" site. What was the difference? Just wondering.
Hope everyone has a lovely holiday season. I've done nothing much yet but now that it's December - that changes everything! Must get started. Cheers.
Let's just say we burned up the wires on the computer posting here and telling lies to each other.
Give it time and people will return.
Elsie, no one has ever told a lie here. Everyone knows I'm a 30 year old bachelor, good looking and very rich!
Elsie young lady, unless you know the truth you will not know a lie. I am allowed to call you young lady as I am as old as methusila, at least I feel it.
Hi YB - Glad to hear from you !!! Speaking of lies, I want to tell everybody that I am tall & thin instead of short & fat !!! :o)
OK, well in that case - I want you all to know I'm the perfect match for Bill Z - age 29, tall & thin like maryescott & independently wealthy. (Sussexman, I doubt you're as old as Methuselah.)
Wicked storms here in Maryland last night - high winds & teeming rain. Yuck. Joanie
I'll have you know we are all as pure as the driven snow >:D
That's not YELLOW snow is it YB? ;)
Hey, I'm like the rest of you all...tall, curvy, very good looking and have a great sense of humor.
Plus, I just won the lottery!
Cool, you can come and spend your lottery winnings at any one of my 4 casinos in Vegas. And I just might take you for a ride in my Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren...with the top DOWN! >wink< lol
Today, I decided to test the age old myth that a watched pot never boils. After 5 minutes the water still wasn*t boiling and I was starting to think it true. Then I realized that I never turned on the stove.
Well, Elsie, you're woman enough to admit it!
And you certainly verified that old saying. Moderation in all things including focus. Remember the greek named Narcissus who stared so long at his reflection in a pool that he fell in!
The day can only improve from
there, I always say. ;-D
I have been wondering where everbody had gone. Been looking in the Garden forum all the time and haven't seen but a few of the regulars til I decided to ck out the chat forum - there are lots more posts here
Colin - Just wanted to say sorry to hear of your wife's Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you my friend. May God bless your family and give you peace and happiness in the New Year.
Elsie in Ohio - I am so glad to see that you are still around - been wishing to hear from you.
Looking forward to SPRING!
It took me a while to figure this out again! Ya'll make me smile and/or laugh out loud:) But I think the snow is a bit multi-colored! ;-)
Full head of hair, multi-millionaire - NO, Billionaire, closer toa bed 6' under than 6' above!! (true).
Last time I posted, I think was to congratulate my cyber GrandDaughter Vallery Starblaster on the birth of her 2nd, Serenity Katherine. she was born in Mid-October.
Since then, usual stuff,
minor Heart Attack on 22nd October, and 5 days in Hospital in Mid-December for unrelated causes, except both caused by stress.
I can lie like some of them,
Whatever you think of the truths or half-truths, when the chips are down, you'll never find a more helpful family. The TOFA Family.
That's what makes this place.
...not going to be ok till I have a good cry....dijean
I used to be a member of the old forum a long time ago. It always used to be full of regulars holding long conversations.
Maybe given enough time it will be like that again.
I live in Australia, in a different time zone and season. We are in mid-summer now while most of you are looking out at snow!
