Oh, how I long for spring....I need some warmth and new harvest in my life. Winter was okay but now I'm feeling the cold, dreary funk.
Crossing fingers for a fellowship....having some mini fires that are freaking me out, professionally.
Please contact me . Dog and some of the people who are on FB know how to reach me.

Thanks

You can still drive on parts of Daytona or at least you could last year.

Hey, Long time no see!
I got my truck stuck on the side of the road once. Had to swerve to avoid a moron with no tail/break lights. Could not get out without a tow. Sugar sand is just too fine to get traction on.
Not sure I want to play on the beach with it.

Ha...I'll trade you Illinois dreary funk for Florida dreary funk.

Seriously, this has been a long, dark winter already and we still have 2 months to go.

It's not so dreary from what I can tell, just cold and windy. And for my part of Florida 43 is cold at 10 am. It's usually 80 by now...

Hey Race, how's doing. Even I wander through every now and then. It's nice to say hi to old friends.

Sure thing. I will make sure to get a Group-on this time.
That might be your best pun ever, P.

Dear Abby,

I am a member of a group of imaginary people who gather each day on the internet to discuss the dilemmas presented in your column. Don't get a big head, as we also do this for Ask Amy. Anyway, one of the senior imaginary persons in the group has made a HUGE deal out of contacting SOME members of the group via personal message but NOT others! I'm a bit put out by this. What gives her the right to do this? Anyone with a lick of sense knows when they get a 'PM' from someone whether it is on Topix or Facebook or any other social media. For all I know she has sent out actual mail and even taken out newspaper ads alerting SELECT PEOPLE to her 'private message'. What's the point of a PERSONAL message if you go everywhere on the internet ANNOUNCING THAT YOU SENT SOMEONE A PERSONAL MESSAGE...while not sending others...anything....?

I guess my question is, is this sort of passive-aggressive messaging here to stay or is this just a cry for help?

There is a meme (I think that's the right word) going around FB with different animals using puns to communicate. Makes me think of you every time I see it.

LW ONE;
you are not an actual "Member" of any group, imaginary or otherwise. You are just a "Lurker" and therefore not afforded the full rights a member enjoys.
There is no record of any dues being paid by you, nor are there any witnesses to vouch for your membership into said group.
Simply put, your are not on a need to know basis, and leaving you in the dark about such things is exactly where the group likes you.
Hope this clears that up.

So....you're saying you not only liked the Jerk Store, you liked it so much you bought the company!

I didn't get the memo!

Imagine that!

She's probably sending out a private message cause of you are a pos and no one likes or wants anything to do with you or wants you involved in anything.

No, I did not say anything like that, you just did.
I only said you are not part of the group.
