    Older Members Still Around?

    I joined this forum on Christmas Eve in 2005 when I was in Shreveport after being displaced from Katrina. I quickly found friends that enlivened my life on here in immense ways (even the people I argued with and had some ugly words with I still look back and think fondly of?I forgive easily, just my nature).

    I read through some of the old posts and laugh at the good zingers we threw to one another and all the things we discussed. Mon dieu !

    I know many have passed on and are no longer with us, and I keep them in my heart. Others maybe don?t come back here much at all because of their lives or whatever reasons they may have had. I was just wondering who is still alive and around living the best they can. I hope everyone is as happy as they can be.

    Yes, I realize I?m more sentimental than many; the Portuguese have a word for it: Saudade; I?m stricken with it for life.

    Not sure how old you gotta be to be “older”, but I remember back when the site was busy and highly trafficked. This place taught me almost everything I know about how to do this whole cripple thing.

          They had to slow the traffic down on here. People were preying on each other.

          At least if we die off, there is potentially less negatvity. We just have to stay optimistic and positive and to try and help one another.

          I really miss rdf and FoolishOld. I miss all that have left or passed but I really miss those two.

                      She and I were amicable at first, but we derailed. However, I do recall her injury was very severe. I always felt for her in that regard; it?s actually why we began a correspondence in the first place, I reached out to her because her story just struck me as horrific.

                        So many people wandered away or felt abandoned after that software upgrade several years ago. The community lost its mojo. Some people migrated to Facebook and stayed there. It's really nice to see posts from members who go 'way back, like you, Todd.

                          I rejoined Facebook in February. How have you been, Bonnette?

                            The degeneration has been intense over the past two years, but I'm glad that I can stay engaged with the world through TV and computer. No major complaints, under the circumstances.

                            I remember the first conversation that you and I had here...it was about Princess Diana, whom we both love(d).

                              I’m not going anywhere Todd. I remain ever hopeful that the ebb will soon cease and flow back will resume. I am looking forward to our reuniting at that “used to be paralyzed” gathering that someone used to anticipate in his or her signature line. Do you remember that is?
