Interesting bit of quotes you nested there, Jim, I had forgotten about posting those bits of my thoughts. East Hill had to be one of the nicest people I have ever encountered in a forum, she was a natural here in the 50+, and in the Introductions forum. A few regulars here managed to stay in touch with her, but time has passed to far I guess. She was really upset about the situation and how things turned out, I pretty much doubt she will re-join us here. I've noticed a few old regulars have put in an occasional appearance here these last few months. I did lurk in every few months, as a visitor, during my hiatus for health restoration, and saw some that had been away for quite a while had posted time or three.

I have encountered a few of the long time regulars, of BF in general, not just 50+ on Facebook, seems that people that you find to be agreeable and someone you can discuss things with on rational terms are the same there as they are here, and those that are jerks here are jerks there also. Without meeting them face to face, it isn't my lace to judge or predict how they are in real life. I will say that the few people from BF/50+ in person, are the same as they come across here. When we got to ride the outskirts of Boston that cold April day, I remember thinking how much the people I had thought of as friends here, were very much the kind of folks I want to call my friends in realworld. When you came over to me in the parking lot and shook my hand, then greeted me warmly and Jim and his lovely stoker, as he always refers to Sharon, came and hugged me, I knew it was going to be a great ride. Despite the rain and cold, it was absolutely great, I wish you had been able to complete the ride. Siting at the General store at our break and talking would have been even better if you'd been still in the pack that Saturday. There will be another group ride, we need to get up to see our son and daughter-in-law here in the next few months, I'll be bugging you and that other Jim character to organize another ride. Stay tuned to this station.
