    Calling FoolishOld...

    ...as much as I know how much you love your tree house near Key West I hope to God you've broken the habit of a life time and followed official advice and headed North!

    If by some miracle you should happen to see this drop in and let us know how you are.

    Amen.

    I really hope he's doing well, and is safe during the storm.

    (I've sent him a PM or 2, over the years, just to check in, but have never gotten a response. IIRC, he broke ties with this site after some particularly poor interactions with mods/admin (over a 'suicide' thread) and hasn't even logged in since. A shame, really, he was such a consistent voice of well tempered reason and intelligence around here for so long.)

          Irma has done too much damage already for one storm, I'm hoping it goes further west and fizzles.
          I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

            I tried to call him yesterday, I have a few other Floridians I was checking on too, and got no answer. His home phone gives the "disconnected" msg, and his cell gives the "can't be completed as dialed" msg. I'm hoping he gave up his landline and maybe cell service sucks wherever he may be. I just tried again now, same thing.

            Stay safe F.O. wherever you are.

                That doesn't sound good.

                  I seem to recall a goodbye post that explained that he had some personal (health?) issues to tend to. I looked back through his posts but couldn't find it.

                    I tried e-mailing him with the e-mail address from his registration/profile here, and it bounced back as undeliverable. I fear the worst.

                      Sounds like sad news.

                        Got a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach, hope he checks in if able.

                          If someone has the time to go back over his last couple years of posts, I'm positive you'll find the post where he says he got bad health news.

                            Nope. Last post was mid-June 2013. Nothing about health in any of his 2013 posts, that I could find, assuming search is working and no threads are still missing from the 'upgrade' debacle. (FWIW, I can't find some posts of my own posts from pre-upgrade so I don't entirely trust the search index or that posts weren't lost.)

                            edit: I think this is a good search, but maybe someone else knows better:

                              If anyone knows FoolishOld's real name you can search for him on True People search.
