  • Oldiesmann: Heard from them this afternoon. The cost of repairs ended up being far more than they originally estimated and about $1200 more than what they say the car is worth (which is a little more than what I paid for it), so they're going to total it.
    October 16, 2019, 10:04:30 pm
  • so_P_bubble: Fingers crossed! I hope the final cost for repair will be lower than previously estimated!

  • so_P_bubble: Michael, that does not sound good, especially for your own security. Maybe you could sell as spare parts and find another bargain? A few months ago mine was stolen during the night and the security cams showed it fleeing toward the Palestinian territories - gone forever. I had just paid the yearly l

  • Oldiesmann: Bubble, the insurance company is having it taken to a local body shop to further inspect it. The appraiser did say it was "borderline" repairable though, despite otherwise being in good condition and having low miles (less than 76,000)

Pat, yes, we all surely know you.  I am sure this all has been a big mess and I know all the "Friends" will so appreciate what you have done to get this site back.  It was almost like "loosing your best friend", these past couple days.

I am Joy, from central Maryland.  I  usually post in the Soda Shop, Norm's Bait and Tackle, the Photo groups, and a couple others now and then.  I love reading all the messages, but don't always post something.

I sure hope all the Friends will be able to figure out how to get back in.

Thanks for all the work, Pat and Michael!

Jane, great to see you found us.  We don't have email addresses to send folks emails announcing this so I guess it's "word of mouth".

Hi, dear hearts. Have I ever missed you. I started a mini diary, more or less to feel a part of you while we were down. Here is what I wrote 

Hi, dear hearts, Mar. 25 th.
   I am missing all of you so much, so decided to just go ahead and talk and will post it when possible. It really is hard being away from you, my Cyber Family. I have kept active. Our Friday Choir performance worked out beautifully. We had a large audience and we all enjoyed entertaining them. Dori came over early and she and I had a nice lunch downstairs with another choir member that is also a member of Gary and Dories Church. Gary arrived later but still ahead of the program. A Secretary from their Church was also a guest and I was so happy to meet Kathy afterwards . She has been a tremendous benefit to Gary as she was Secretary before Gary became Pastor, and a very wonderful help to him. Dori had to leave after the program to get some shopping done, and Gary came home with me to go over paper work I had saved for him to decide on. That is such a GREAT help to me. He thinks for me.

Today Mar. 26. has been a day of rest. I did go down for lunch, and will go to a Sing along program now, and then home for more reading and rest.

The Sing Along was great, but now it is time for bed. I wonder if  Vanilla knows we are down. I would not like her to worry that it is her computer. Good night dear hearts. I love you.

Easter Sunday…Good Church service. home to write letters, clean up paper work and just dawdle

Monday, the 28th. Still missing you all. Keeping you in Prayers. God grant you Peace and health. HUGS~~~~
As long as we are here, let's dance.

Good to be back!  Looking forward to seeing Leisure Activities again.  Radioman and I are discussion leaders there. :)

What happened? Was the place hacked?

I'd like to see Norm's Bait and Tackle forum rise from the ashes.

Norm, sadly, may be gone but our memories of him are not.

Oldiesmann

No, nothing was hacked. It's kind of technical as far as what happened but there was a series of hardware failures which resulted in the data from the old server getting corrupted and neither I nor the host had any backups (despite the fact that the host claimed they did nightly backups).

Hi there!

I'm glad that you found your way back.  Michael is working so hard behind the scenes to get things listed as they were. 

Now, if you tell me what USER NAME you'd like we can remove the email address as your name.

Pat  :)

Pat, I can't tell you how very happy it makes me to see you posting again. God does answer our prayers. Is everything going well with you now? I pray so. I will never cease being Grateful to you and your husband for giving us this "home" again. Thank you for everything.

Beverly here, checking in! I found it difficult to figure out how to register. It kept giving me the log-in when I clicked on "Register" but somehow I found my way.  :) I hope everyone is able to find us again. I'm so glad we're back even if it means starting with a clean slate. I have missed you all!

Just not as sharp as the rest of you.  It took me a couple of dozen attempts before I made it into your midst.  Now I'm going to take an Old Lady nap.  Entitled.

Dear, dear, dedicated and must be exhausted Pat, I have been and am and would like to be for a while yet just plain yours truly MaryPage.  That's my name and I own to it.  Hugs to you ___________

So I want MaryPage as my USER NAME.  And I only post in Bosom Buddies and Norm's Bait & Tackle.  Thank you!

What username do you want so you don't have to use your email address as your username?

I'm baaack.  What was the horror film with that line?   :)

Anyway, here I am.  Remember me?  Good to see so many of our friends finding the way back.

We owe Michael huge thanks for all the work he's been doing and the time he has spent in order to get us running again.

Ok. Check your email shortly for instructions for logging in again, as changing your username also causes your password to be changed (due to the way that information is stored).

Thank you, Pat and Oldiesman for getting us all together again.  We are all Newbies now!
I noticed there is no chatroom and that is where LaBrat, Alpiner, and I have met most every evening for years, with other friends dropping in occasionally.  We met at 9;30 pm, CDT, and welcomed any or all to join us.  Please, let us chat!
