Lost sailor


One of the sad things about the blog is that you develop a cyber bond with people and when you don't hear for a long time from the physically distant ones you never know if they have passed on or simply lost interest.

Like Martin in Oregon, he was a regular and then poof, not a blip on the radar. I know he was in his eighties and I really liked him and I hope that he is still kicking. W.C. Gypsy, Window Dancer, Denis, Grumpy, MMWB, Randy Walters, a lot of people have just fallen off the map. And fourteen years down the blast road, I have sadly lost a few...

I want you all to know that I miss you, even though we may have never met in the flesh. Write and let me know that you are okay, or perhaps we can say hello on the other side.

Spectacular shot Rob!Had to check the 'signature' to see if it was a masterful oil painting in your gallery or a photo.

Well, wcgypsy says hello...i don't often have something that needs saying, but I lurk,reading all. Having said that, I do have something to say ...I was struck by how much your family photos meant to me..our histories,our roots in life..they form each of us to such an extent and we may not even realize it until we visually connect with those missing pieces.

I learn much from you....your experiences being very different from mine...

I keep up, peripherally, with what's going on in Fallbrook....

You introduce me to music that I may have missed....

I catch passing glimpses of Leslie...admire Leslie.....

I am not dead yet......



I sympathize with your health issues, getting older does suck...
