My recent posts have caused me to reflect on just what I have done. I am a private person and with my using another name, I thought that I could maintain a little privacy, but because I identified myself, I feel that I have violated my wife's trust and the memory of my daughter. I didn't want that. I owe them more than that. There are people who know me personally, now and others who know of me and who I am. I didn't want that.

I want everyone to know that what I am doing is because of my actions and for no other reason. The people on this site are the best. I have enjoyed the company of everyone.

Over the months people have tried emailing me but my Charter Communications set up would not forward the email. I didn't know that until today, so this is the correct one.

I have gotten much more than I have given.

Oslo, it took a lot of guts to post what you posted. You posted it in the right place, because I think this place has got to be the most caring bunch of people in the world. sure, sometimes we squabble like kids, but that passes. I did read that particular post. Although I can't relate to such a brutal act, I can relate to losing someone very dear to you.

My MIL died at 55 years of age. She was my very best friend, she was a role model, I really looked up to her. Shelby was her world, and we ourselves had such a bond. She died in her sleep, two years after she had a heart attack. She had been doing so well, she was exercising, eating right, getting back to her old self, she had angioplasty to open a few clogged arteries.

The autopsy revealed she had a blood clot break loose in her leg, and she had an anurism. My FIL called me, they had been married for 35 years, since he was 18 years old, he was lost. He still is, and its been three years. It still doesn't seem right. She was taken before her time was up. Things will never be the same, but we find a way to go on.

If you stay long enough, you will get to know people here and people will get to know you, its just enivitable. Theres nothing wrong with that. Sometimes, there are things I share with the folks on here that my husband could care less about, but I know y'all care. Something as simple as my chickens. Ian couldn't give a hoot about those birds, but I can come here and show pics and tell stories, and everybody loves it. It feels nice to be able to do that.

I know everybody is different, has their own things in life to deal with, but, I wish you wouldn't go. People here understand more than you know.

By the way, I haven't seen a chicken picture lately.

Fern(Mi)    Posted 02-01-2005 at 03:07:27       [Reply]  [No Email]
Kelly's probably got the Chickens packed already. Hope she's got it labeled like she had to Ian's, to let him out to go work, and Shelby's so's shee could make it to school.

See, OSLO, what you're going to be missing if you quit hanging around here. There's some what get under our skins like family. Can't do with them. Can/t do without. You might reconsider some. Whatever! That's up to you.

My gosh, what I got from your posts was that you have a deep and loving concern for your wife, and you are incredibly respectful. You are a man of integrity. Maybe I am remembering the wrong posts? I don't think so.

Newbies like me will not recall details, and old timers here are your friends. Only a small handful of people over the past few days have read your posts, and I think have come back with their support. I understand being a very private person, absolutely. I also understand living nightmares. I think most of us can't always be the rock, sometimes we need someone to lean on. Sometimes it has to be someone outside of our circle, other than our immediate loved ones. There's nothing wrong with that. There are some wonderful people here.

I hope you reconsider.

Hey guy, cut yourself a little slack. Things are just starting to pick up around here. Spring is comming......gardening/planting talk.....tiller discussions. Already, B'keeper want's to know about soil testing in my state. Then, Kathy needed advice on what to do with runt piglets. Why, just yesterday someone conducted a survey about tomato choices.

Now, the question is, what are you going to do if you don't stop in here from time to time? Might just as well hunker down for the duration. And, I'll be looking for you here so don't let us down.......gfp

I would have never known it was you who posted that. It touched my heart reading it. I see nothing wrong with your post and you may have helped others with some problems they have been dealing with from the past. One that has taken many years for me to deal with is my Father dieing when I was 11 but he took his own life and I found him when I came home from school. This hit me very hard and it was not till I was a aldult that I figured out why but all those years were hard wondering. Life throws different things at us to build us into the person we are. I sure see no lesser of a man in you because of this but more of a man for letting us know. If you are intending not to post anymore I will miss you! But if you stay I will continiou to read and enjoy your posts. I read WAY MORE POSTS then I respond to and enjoy them. Some are sad many are happy but they are all a way of country living in this world. Take Care and I hope to read more of your posts!! Mark Hendershot

Oslo, rethink your approach if you would. You did nothing wrong to any of us (in my opinion). You may feel uncomfortable because of the anon post but don't let that stop you from visiting and posting. You posted a message from the heart. There is nothing wrong with that. Who can hold that against another?

PS - My Charter Communication email bites too. Maybe you should get a new ISP and keep posting. Smile Paul - nothing you did was inappropriate.
