Do you have room for one more? I've brought some spare lightbulbs...

Hello everyone.

A little bird elsewhere on the net told that you were all moving over here in these times, so I snuck in behind Nurse Kelley. Do you have room for one more? Because I have tons of news.

:)

Oh, and Hi!!!

OMG - lightbulb! [leap] (2.00 / 21)
How the hell have you been? Welcome to the Motley Moose, a slower, much more civilized place to chat.

Oh oh oh oh I have to go tell someone you're here!

Type up your news while I'm gone - BRB!

I'm good! (2.00 / 16)
I'm doing okay!

How are you? I've heard you have had some serious health challenges.

I had a spinal fusion and decompression in August. (2.00 / 17)
It was a very scary surgery with a long, intense recovery period, but! it was a true gift to myself. Instead of waiting around for the inevitable wheelchair, I have my life back.

Now what's your news? I've thought about you so many times and wondered if you were okay.

My news is that I'm doing better than I was a year ago. (2.00 / 14)
My situation improved in such a way that I now have a friendly relationship with a farmer's market. It has done wonderful things for my overall health and well-being. Not that I was exactly ill before, but I'm much better now.

My friends who were ill in one way or another, have gotten better, and so that has also been excellent, as we depend on each other a lot.

I see that you would be included in that group as well! I don't know much about medicine, but yikes, spinal fusion does not sound pleasant. So glad that you have your life back!

It's awesome to see you.


[ Parent ]
Where the hell have you been (2.00 / 16)
and how the hell are you????  Good to see you!!!

Never counted, (2.00 / 9)
interesting stat.

Not sure it could be summed up in less than ten pages, but we work to maintain a Reasonability Field. Folks who want to pick fights either leave or calm down. We are not in any way above the nuclear option of arbitrary moderation, but something about the nature of the effort has so far led to very little need for it.

We toss around analogies like Callahan's Crosstime Saloon, but I don't think there is a simple explanation. Like Callahan's, though, you just can't be the weirdest person in this room so a lot of the tangential inertia gets damped out.

I was just thinking... "Can you believe Nurse Kelley is here?"

[ Parent ]
Oh, I'm an oldtimer here. (2.00 / 14)
Posted a diary and everything.  /lol

Good to see you raina! (2.00 / 13)
I've been elsewhere on the 'net,  and folks have been updating me on the latest, and when I realized everyone was here, I thought I would drop by. :)

Jannnnnnn!!!!!!!!! (2.00 / 12)
wouldn't have known y'all were here if not for a comment on GOS. Think it was bjm's diary. I was gonna suggest maybe you do a JTown group on FB, but y'all are here, and that'll work.

[ Parent ]
Yup. A few of us started posting here. (2.00 / 11)
Did you see that one of my diaries got Front Paged? I like the purple hue surrounding my words. :)

I saw that you were on the FP; I also know that we were the only ones here. How'd you pull that off? Did you find Peter's magic decoder ring?

congrats on the FP. It's nice knowing that democrats who support democrats are welcomed here, even promoted to the FP.

[ Parent ]
...and we've missed you. :~) (2.00 / 10)
We had a discussion not long ago about the transient nature of Mooses. I think it is a healthy thing, all in all (distance, fonder hearts, and suchlike).

Each Moose has been absent for some time. Some we haven't seen in a long time, some we may unfortunately miss forever. But that is the nature of the rest of our lives as well. The best places we return to still have a fire burning and someplace we can actually relax into when we finally make it back to them.

Can we stay a long time? Will we ever leave again?

Those questions have no answers and are often better left unasked. When we have each others' company it is enough that we do.

OMG! So glad to see you! (2.00 / 14)
Love seeing you here! Hugs!!!!

Hi!!!!!!!!!! (2.00 / 13)
How are you? It's been too long!

[ Parent ]
Life has been hectic and I am making big changes going into 2013 (2.00 / 9)
including coming to a new place to be political and help build a different community.

Hope you are doing well...


[ Parent ]
understood (2.00 / 9)
"including coming to a new place to be political and help build a different community"

I like the way you think. I'll follow that example.


[ Parent ]
Hi boran! How are you?? (2.00 / 13)


[ Parent ]
Very good! (2.00 / 11)
So good to see you here!

[ Parent ]
Woo hoo! (2.00 / 14)
Please say that you saved off you old diaries and that you will repost some of them here.

It is great to "see" you.

Actually, I *did* save a bunch of them. (2.00 / 14)
Not all of them, but tons of them. I don't know if they want me to repost though... what are the rules about that?

[ Parent ]
Diary posting rule just says "Be nice to each other". (2.00 / 12)
Pretty easy rule for nice people, don't you think?

Pie? (2.00 / 4)
Hey, that's my area of expertise! Glad I found everyone.  Now, Lightbulb, fork over the new diaries and no one gets hurt.  I've been wondering how you and the gang at the dock are?  It's been like waiting for the new season of Downton Abbey.

[ Parent ]
LOL (2.00 / 2)
Hi there domestic goddess! it's been too long!  I do have a diary cooking, but it's not ready yet. :)

[ Parent ]
Cooking? (2.00 / 3)
You're really walking a fine line here.  Anyone want me to repost my recipe for pasta fagioli?

[ Parent ]
Sure! And another thought...Your series on low cost cooking... (2.00 / 1)
that would be really wonderful in these times.

[ Parent ]
Be nice..??..I'll try. (2.00 / 11)

Hi Lightbulb! (2.00 / 15)
It is so good to know you are doing well.

Love is the lasting legacy of our lives

yep! (2.00 / 14)
I'm not exactly out of the woods, but am doing well. Great to see you too!

[ Parent ]
Glad to hear it (2.00 / 1)
Missed you and your diaries; will be glad to see them reappear over here.  :-)

[ Parent ]
I was going to say...sure is dark here... (2.00 / 13)
does anybody have a lightbulb.

Yeah, I suspect it's hard to do plumbing w/o lighting... (2.00 / 12)
So I thought I'd bring some spares. Great to see you Glen!

[ Parent ]
great to see you out and about... (2.00 / 11)
feeling safe...peace and hugs.

[ Parent ]
Me too, fcvaguy (2.00 / 5)
Did you see my other comment to you? In your diary!

Part of why I'm here is because I heard you were. Granted, I've had a Moose account for years, but I'd forgotten the password. I heard you were here and dearly wanted to catch up.


[ Parent ]
I'll check (2.00 / 3)
I'm still learning my way around. I just realized there's a way to just look at responses to my comments.  

[ Parent ]
Just sent you email... (2.00 / 1)

Lightbulb (2.00 / 13)
Good to see you. We never really met before, and I caught your name in recent months as some mythic figure of some unknown injustice

I don"t know what happened elsewhere, nor do I need to know. All I can say is that from the affection shown to you above by people I respect, I'm looking forward to knowing you better. And rest assured no injustice passes here.

I am SO glad you're here!  I've really missed you and your writing.  It sounds like things are improving for you and I am very happy to hear that.

How can you be a Progressive but oppose progress?

your grace under fire continues to inspire

[ Parent ]
Lightbulb!!! Wow so glad to "see" you here. Glad that things are (2.00 / 6)
improving for you. Was very sad to see you leave the GOS but understandable. Happy New Year! Lots of familiar names popping up on the moose.
