10 Years on FR
me | 11/7/10 | andy58-in-nh

Posted on 11/07/2010 5:15:48 PM PST by andy58-in-nh

No big vanity here, guys (nor, perish the thought, an "opus").

I just wanted to observe the fact that I've been on this forum for 10 years today, and to thank Jim Robinson for the opportunity to vent my spleen and express whatever humorous or (hopefully) thoughtful impulses happen to drift through my transom. And when they do, it is often at the instigation and inspiration of many of you here assembled. You folks have become like an extended family to me, and yes, I truly mean that.

Thank you all for your passion, your humor and your continuing commitment to help restore the kind of America I recall so fondly as a child and a young man.

I sincerely hope that in another ten year's time, we will have taken steps toward restoring the nation we all love, and I know instinctively that all of you will have helped participate in that effort.

Best regards,

Andy

I’ve been on 10 years this past October, but really longer, because I had another screen name, but it either got lost when I switched computers, or when the software here changed, but oh well.

This is THE BEST site on the entire interweb. Best.

Agreed, this is a wonderful place, lots of people from different backgrounds and stages in life.
I would that it could be a permanent fixture on the net, as it is a home “away.”


QUITE SO . . . in a list of ways.

I hang out for the humor usually.
Though I am told my coffee is an offense against nature.

I agree wholeheartedly - this is the best site for a host of reasons. I’ve met some terrific people on line at FR, as well as in person here in the great state of New Hampshire. I’m adding a little “ping” for their benefit, because they are a large part of the reason I’ve chosen to hang out here for the past ten years.

Hummmmmm. Ten years. You know I had my 12th anniv. back in Oct. I don’t recall the date, I just know it was in Oct. However, I failed to even remember my anniv. month. I’ve been here so long, I’m practically Jim Rob’s grandmother.

Hi fellow 98ers. FR is my homepage too. My family thinks I’m nuts. Nope, not nuts, addicted. Maybe we need a 12 step program.

You know, speaking of learning so much here, it’s a two-edged sword. Being so well informed adds to the frustration, because you end up talking to so many people who are clueless. That in turn adds to the compulsion to be here all the time in order to have informed people with whom to converse.

Wizard, I have wondered for ages where you find that kind of information. Problem is, I’m afraid to look at how many times I’ve replied. I know I’ve posted very little. Usually see no need to because other Freepers are on top of things.

Welcome Aboard.

I don’t usually come out of ‘retirement’ to post anything, but in this case, I’ll make an exception. You’re a winner.

Well done.

I was here lurking in 97-98...I think.

But was intimidated by HTML...and the whole enchilada. Finally swallowed the worm in 2000...

You guy's lead the way....!!

Thanks for that....

I will always remember the nice welcome I rec'd when I stepped up....
