We would love to have you of course. They let me in so the requirements are slim.

I will email you at your mac.com address.

a help for all of us who had no idea what we were doing....so belated thanks my friend. Glad I got to say how much I will miss the folks I have been blessed to share the fun times and sad times with....
so before they shut and lock the doors and bar the windows

It is unlikely that I'll ever join facebook.
So it is goodbye from me and goodbye from him.

Goodbye? MacBozo 07/27/20 09:44 PM
It's been a long, strange, ride.

As some of you may know, the last 4+ years have been absolutely nuts for me. I'm still working full time while approaching 70 this coming November, and that doesn't look like that will change any time soon. My granddaughter has been living with us since the spring of 2016 and we've been her primary support since. Her mom has been a raging alcoholic for most of that time - been arrested and jailed 3 times. Still on probation from the last time. She's also living here since she'd be homeless if she weren't. She's still drinking, but not as much the last few weeks. That could change at a moment's notice though. Oh! My granddaughter is a senior this year! My wife had 3 cervicals replaced in her neck in June. She's recovering from that while waiting to have her lower back done. Elective surgery has been suspended due to the spike in Covid-19 cases here in Florida. She hasn't been to work since March. Luckily, She has long term disability and good health insurance. The long term disability won't last forever, and neither will her job position be held for her at the hospital. I may never get to retire at this rate. Now you know why I haven't been here very much. I have been active on Facebook and Twitter. There is a group of us hanging out on FB.

Anyway, you can find me on FB, or you're more than welcome to email me at michaeladams2@icloud.com.

Is Bird still around?

Stay safe. Stay healthy. I miss you all.

We havenít heard from Carp in ages, he used to be on Facebook, but the other three I see on Facebook every day. Macbeemer started an MCF alumni Facebook group. No politics of course. Basically Mac and tech questions and news and a little bit of chitchat. If youíre interested in it or on Facebook let me know Iíll send you an invitation. Off the top of my head thereís yoyo52, Steveg, MacGizmo, iRock, Lesh, Mike Sellers, Dr John, Acumochek, zwei, poly, NG4, MacBozo, Sleeve Tugger, Mississauga, ichi, lanovami, Pirate, Kate, Shooshie, Sean The flying spaghetti monster. Thereís 48 members from the past. Of course minus MrB, and Marge.

Well, gentlemen, we knew it was coming. Still, here it is. I don't think I'd be ready for it if it took another 20 years. Yep, I'm crying a little bit.

Very. Heavy. Sigh.

OK - To you amazing collection of unforgettable MacDudes, Deep from this Heart in Texas -

Thank y'all for your strength and love when Jim died.
Thank y'all for putting up with SatNite Vids.
Thank y'all for indulging my Dog Love.
Thank y'all for making me a MacBabe.
Thank y'all for giving me an online home.
Thank y'all for all these years of friendship.
Thank y'all for being such a rockin' bunch of SOBs.

Adios, Sweet Amigos. I'm gonna miss y'all very, very much.

AllMyLoveLea

PS: Promise me this - Every time you bite into a big ol' sweet piece of cherry pie? Think of me wink

SteveG moved about a hour south from me about 12 years ago and we briefly met and talked once or twice a few years later but that was it.

I wonder if Carp is still in Hawaii? I know JohnR made the trip!
