Tenatively Back?


#21

@RepublicanChick1 You are unforgettable. How could you even think such things?


#22

I do remember you as a poster, I’ve been here for quite a few years and have seen a lot of changes to Republican Operative. And thank you for referencing 76 as young, hopefully , as long as the battery in the pacemaker stays charged I can continue to stay’young’. That is pretty much what keeps the heart beating is a battery and computer chip. Other than that the heart doesn’t work on its own any more.


#23

Haha Thank you!! I don’t know…I feel like most people besides FC and Susanna don’t really remember too well. I did dip out of here for quite a long time, so it’s understandable. Glad you seem to recall me lol

Yes! SO many changes to RO have happened since I joined in October of 2008. So many changes have also happened in me since then as well. Can’t believe a year from this October will be 10 years I’ve been here. Feels like I’ve lived a few different lifetimes in that amount of time. ha.

From the sound of it, it seems you are forever young, even though you may rely on a pacemaker. Still a great device and I pray you have many amazing years ahead :slight_smile:


#25

I try not to concern myself with youth in this life; because “when we’ve been there ten thousand years bright shining as the sun,” we’ll STILL be young!


#26

Wow; I hadn’t remembered that you were here for that long; I only joined about a year earlier, and RO started up about a year and a half before that.


#27

Yes! I cannot believe I have been apart of RO that long either. We have both been here quite a while! Brings back such good memories for me of when I first started here as an active member - at a time in my life that was difficult and becoming more so. I am glad that as my life has changed, some things remain a constant, like the fact that I can check in here from time to time and be greeted by people I have known almost a decade!


#28

I reccomemember you!

My father wore a pacemaker for his last 20 years, NJC. His only complaint about it was that it didn’t have a gear shift on it. When he need it to go faster, it wouldn’t. The year before he died, I called him one Saturday when he’d said he’d be home. He didn’t answer–and I called him at least 10 times throughout the day. I finally called my brother, who lived nearby, and asked him to drive down and check on Dad. Around 8PM, Dad called and said, “WHAT?” I told him I’d called him all day long and he said, “Was that you?” I asked why he didn’t answer the phone and he said, “I’m not getting down off of the roof to answer a phonecall!” (Dad never had a cell phone.) It seems he was up on his own roof putting down new shingles…at age 84! Carrying them up the ladder, too.

I definitely reccomember you too! :smiley:


#31

Sorry for not responding earlier, FC, but I have been a bit under the weather, and Irma coming has complicated my life, a bit. Hope all is well. How’s your Mom?


#32

Hey, Devilish one. Sorry to be so late, but lots of things happening right now. Thanks for the welcome.


#33

We’re holding together. Mom’s still on, when her modem cooperates with a passable connection speed.

Hope you feel better soon. For Irma, hide under a Clam…


#34

Our son in Clearwater weathered it very well. He’s back in his apartment now and even has electricity back! He sent my wife a package of seashells he’d picked up on the beach, but I don’t think any of them were CLAM shells.


#35

If it had been a genuine Magnaclam, Irma would have wet her pants…


#36

For some reason I have missed a lot of posts in this thread. I hadn’t seen any from @Tiny1. Glad to see you back, and hope you’re able to be around a lot. I’ve had a hectic summer - a hectic year, in fact - within a year’s time, I’ve lost 3 brothers and a brother-in-law. My “baby” brother just passed away yesterday evening. He was only 75.


#37

Susanna; Great to hear from you. I trust, physically, you are doing well, I am almost back to normal and hope we can keep any more heart attacks at bay. I am back to busy, busy, busy, trying to get book #2 published, started book #3, and keep writing more and more Bible lessons, plus my Architect practice has ramped up again. I am on a little more here, but have not totally gotten the hang of this new format yet.


#38

I’m doing pretty well, all things considered. Just a little more crippled up with arthritis.


#39

Thanx Susanna.
Lots going on for us too. Sorry to hear of your losses, and may God Bless and Keep all concerned. You and yours are in my prayers.
