Thanks, K-Lov3r for finding that.
I think that people just love a good shit-show and certain people seemed to always deliver lol. As I guess we all know, the demise of forums is nothing new and not at all unique to jko. I've been on at least a half dozen other forums over the last 10 years and participation on every one of 'em has dropped off significantly from their heyday. The advent of FB left forums to float around in the sea without a rudder or a sail. The true bromads of the forums were always people that appreciated interaction, writing and/ or reading stories, taking part in actual discussions, and expending actual time and effort to assist others. The rest were just waiting to abandon ship as soon as the sleek new FB cruise-ship set sail and proved to be the latest and greatest way to travel. And I guess that I'll die on this old boat... alongside some of the other salty seamen ( Damn that was too easy...Deck hands? I dunno)... sharing a few more laughs and indulging in the non-tech-tech of the passerby's, and occasionally waxing nostalgic.
I admittedly shared more here on jko over the years than I did with actual friends and family in some instances. I miss it. Plus the fact that it was recently confirmed to me that my sister... my own flesh and blood, is a feminist liberal. I mean.. What the fuck do you do with that?? It's sad but she's made it next to impossible for me to even maintain a civil relationship with her, much less feel like I can count on her for support. Thankfully I have an incredibly loving and strong wife to accompany me throughout the good and the bad as this has already been one hell of an interesting year with some significant highs and lows... but I digress.
I sincerely hope that things are going well for you, Dee Dee. Sounds like it but I know that as we trudge down this path towards diapers and AARP discounts, it just doesn't get any easier. If you ever need anything, feel free to shoot me a PM or send a nice healthy fart my way. Being in Texas, I think that I'm downwind so I should be able to identify it and respond accordingly. You were one of the best writers of 'em all and your unique antics, workplace rants, and your sometimes circuitous articulation will always remain a fond memory of mine and I'm sure of others... no matter where they now hang their hats.
Take care, man.
