Pastor Bob is a great guy. He was extremely helpful to Nora and me on our New Hampshire/Maine/Vermont trip.

I've never been a big poster, but there's times this past winter when I didn't visit BF for over 2 weeks. Just didn't feel like it. I guess I had lost my enthusiasm for the forums for a while. But now that spring is here and it's riding weather again, all is well.

VegaVixen hangs out in the new Socalbikeforums, a website created by a member here who was tired of things in our own SoCal sub-forum. In fact, several people from the Carolinas hang out there.
VV is doing fine and working on her time-trials. She might come to California for a visit this year and I hope to get a chance to meet her.

Blind fingers or fingers and brains that don't communicate

Wouldn't it be grammarian, rather than grammerian? as in "Not all good grammarians are good spellers?"

Good to see you again. And to hear that all is well with you.

I am here! I am back! I never went away, really, but autumn deepened into winter and I began riding my bike trainer indoors and turning to other forums and hobbies. I bought a new guitar. I took a knitting class. As the snow fell, started hanging out in guitar/knitting forums. (Well, they're separate, OK, unless I am missing the GuitarKnitting Forum.) I am writing a novel, and began spending a lot more time on that. But I emailed DenverFox awhile ago, telling him I was still around, and then I got a nice message from Jet Travis from this forum, asking about me.

So: I'm getting back into riding outdoors, and renewing my interest here, and you'll be hearing from me! Now, all I have to do is go back and read about six months' worth of postings ......
