Sad to hear that about Gentle Taz.
I'm glad that I had the opportunity to meet him a few times.
Best wishes to his family.
RIP, GT

Hi Barbus, your double post isn't showing. I think topix has a feature to automatically fix that. It's nice to see you, it's been forever.:-)

I just recently came back to topix and was amazed to see Taz never gave up on this thread. For the last two years he continued to post the weather report even tho no one else was posting. Thank you Taz for keeping it going when the rest of us gave up.

We will miss you.

I will miss his daily weather reports here on Lets Chat and his daily quotes, over on the Quote of the Day thread.

His User Name was very fitting for the type of man he was -- a very gentle man.

Rest in peace Gentle Taz.

My thoughts & prayers to Mrs Taz & the Family.

In honor of Gentle Taz:

Light snow and freezing rain developing later this afternoon. High of 41.

Be safe in your travels this afternoon.

I know it's not as good as Taz did it, but I tried.

I think Taz is smiling down on us from heaven. I think he is honored to know so many people that were torn apart are coming back together to honor him.

Hi Barbus!

Nice to see you posting and to see that Stinky the Cat is still playing around on that window! You'd think that Stinky would be tired by now?

Barbus? Do you or your other half need a cheap VCR?:)

So many of us were blessed to have known this wonderful man. He was the kindest and most caring man I have ever had the honor of knowing. He made a difference in so many lives, and will be missed so very much. I will keep his family in my thoughts and prayers always...

Just a reminder to all of us... life is short. Take time to see and speak with those you care about. Take time to share with others. Not just on special days but everyday. I am kicking myself right now for not following through on my plan to catch up with Taz and share some thoughts about a couple things we shared. Now it is too late.
Don't let it be too late... today with the internet it only takes a second of your time to connect with someone...

Hey Oma2 long time no talk. Been forever.

So,.... I'm thinking about getting a snowmobile,.....found a sweet deal on two of them, with a trailer,.. and then all of the sudden it's 55 degrees and all of the snow is gone!
It's been about 20 years since I had one, and it seemed back then that the same thing would happen.
It's such a dilemma, because the guy is selling them so cheap because he doesnt use them.
I think that I'd be in the same boat, as all of the snow is gone.
But then,....it's a good deal.
But, even though it's such a good deal, is it really a good deal if you cant use them?
