Pooch1: Andie, the old days when 8-10 of us would have fun in the evenings on Senior Net or Chatback and eedy would play her music are long gone.  Hard to tell what's happened to many of our old acquaintances, but time has marched on.  Sad. old acquaintances

Andie: haven't been here in a long time so I feel like a newcomer.  I have been training for this distancing for several years now.  Hope everyone is staying safe.

Oldiesmann: Should be fixed now. Thanks for bringing it to my attention :)

Oldiesmann: I must not have set the permissions correctly for that board when I set the site up again a few years ago (long story - there was a server crash years ago and no backup, so we had to start over from scratch). I'll fix it soon.

Astro:   feel free to start a topic here. Any duplicated topics may be merged together so we don't have two topics of similar nature.  Has that been eliminated?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but for those who haven't heard, Pat has passed away.

As far as the site goes, things will continue to operate as normal - I'll keep the site going and continue to host it as I have for the past several years.


This news has been posted by Larry .

Thank you for your thoughtfulness on keeping this going.

Oldiesmann,  thank you so for for
everything that you have been doing,

Thank You

than by the ones that you did.

Another grateful "Senior", Oldiesmann. Good luck with all you are doing juggling the different sites.


Thank you,  Olddiesman, for keeping this site alive and taking care of things over the past years. It is so much appreciated. 



Amy has made me aware of your announcement here. How did I miss it?

There is a place for Pat's condolence messages in the Tranquil Cove.

We have to let you know how grateful we are for your willingness to help  keep our meeting place alive. This is a relief since many feared we might be unable to all keep in touch.

Thank you Michael for this and also congratulations/good luck for your personal Cincinnati Site.


...can we also place June Drabek into our " Tranquil Cove? " she belongs in there along with our others that sadly we have recently lost..

...this was posted on March 24th, her memorial service was March 26th re, Soda Shoppe..June Drabek had  passed away on the 6th March...

Message was from Junes Dori to Gloria..

" Dear Gloria,
Yes, things have been pretty crazy around here. I am so sorry to say that my dear, beautiful, precious Mother-in-Love went home to be with the Lord on March 6th. She died as she lived... with grace, dignity, faith, hope and joy...and with love and gratitude for her Lord and loved ones on her lips."

Vanilla, the page for June Drabek is opened in Tranquil Cove, but I don't know at this late day...

You are right, I did read about it and even posted a photo. I suppose my personal problems occupied me too much :(
Sorry about that.


BUBBLE, I for one, am sorry for your personal problems.  I hope they are in the process of becoming a thing of the past.

Patricia posted the obituary in the Gloria Hanson folder and Jackie found the same obit so I thought I'd put it here.  I see it was timed about 12:40 pm and I had looked earlier.  I wanted to be sure others saw the obit.
