Title: Where'd you go?
Post by: Joe A. on March 25, 2014, 06:03:26 AM
I don't know why you all aren't posting. Was there some upheaval that left you angry with one another? A hundred years ago when I lost my leg, If I hadn't found this forum I would have died. It was this site that gave me help and hope. Sometimes they pissed me off with brutal honesty. Other times they laid a hand on my shoulder to cheer me up but all in all I learned that our greatest resource is each other. God bless Mike for still hosting this forum. God bless you for coming here to share what you know.

I assume people drifted away slowly. The posts dropped and so people checked in less often. I remember the days of chatting with Bruce and George (!).
I hated to see it get quiet. Coming here is like Christmas with the family. Sure, there may be arguments but there is a mutual respect and caring too.

Perhaps if you could convince Mike to open the registration more people might come. I had a terrible time getting back on.

I agree this is a great forum and thanks to mike for keeping it up, I think the problem with opening it up you get manufactured etc and other people not to trust.

I thought it was some political cause regarding international copyright or something. I don't know as I was unconscious for a couple of years

Joe, I do not even think there have been much of a discussion on here for years...honestly I can't think anyone has been rude to any one.  We have tried games, etc.,  and nothing in replies.   After awhile I stopped coming.  I had soooo much fun before, and of course I loved teasing Steve.   ;)


PS:  I don't know if Jim Thompson has ever been on this forum, but he passed on  Good Friday,.  he invented shower sleeves for your leg.  Personally I will miss he and his wife Shirley very much....he was a special person who would do just about anything for his fellow amputee.

Oh yes. I recall Jim. His wrap around shower cover was a great idea. I use a shower chair myself. He will be missed.

I think I remember Jim. Sad to hear of his passing. I bought one of those shower covers! (I tend to use it for work in bogs though. Its very handy.)

You love teasing me Ann? Good!

I have missed you all!  Spring is finally here!!! I live near Cape Cod.  I thought we might miss Spring this year and go right into summer.  Life is good and I hope you are all well.  annieg
