I talked to Mike.. seems as though he is finished here... Naw, I don't know mike well so I can't read into what he was saying as I could with Joe.. I think it had something to do with Sue.
Needless to say, I can't blame him for leaving.. I figure in a month, even if I wanted to be here, a few ithings would keep me from doing so.. as in only a cell phone. Figured when I left.. well, I left.

From my time here, I think a break does us all good, esp. when we start taking this place sooooo seriously. It's an internet forum for cryin' out loud! That said, I did the same thing last fall (I just didn't announce it - didn't know that was proforma). Get a little perspective, come back when you want. We'll leave the door open...

I left for a while after my divorce. Till everything settled back down.
While this forum is distracting, its nice to be in communication with a group of people who have a lot of the same interests (sometimes :-).

I think it is more than that George..
I get up in the morning and see threads bashing Donn.. Now even if I am on the receiving end of Donn's posts, I really don't feel that it is nec. to post one that can turn out to be a food fest.
I see other threads that only deal with politics and are for the most part.. anti republican.
I see ljb5 lambasting Margo.. naw.. not necessary.. Margo is a sweet southern lady. The bashing is not necessary.
I mean, there has to be an end to this but I don't see it.
Now above board.. I will miss.. but I have to juggle the reasons for being here along with the reasons not to be.

Mike, if you're really leaving, I'm sorry. You'll be missed.

Sometimes it does seem rather pointless down here. The boaty stuff is always cool, though.

Seems as though the place is falling apart, eh?

That maybe okay Norman but do you see any value in having a " Donn " thread? or a thread where an individual is lambasted for not having all of the facts regarding a certain topic.. As if any of us do?
Sure discussion is fine.. no problem.. but why is it that every thread which deserves a discussion turns into a feeding frenzy?
Answer that and I'll be happy.
As I wrote.. when I leave and I will soon, the only thing I will miss is above the bilge.. and the only thing that will help is knowing those I consider friends will and do know how to contact me.

The Donn thread was CLEARLY a joke. But just in case you felt threatened by it otherwise... I have posted another thread regarding the original.

Norman.. regarding the Donn thread.. Knock deleted it...Understandable.. but it was there..
Regarding the rest.. time will tell.

Oh.. by the bye.. thank you knock.

Knock I was not personally threated by it.. No skin off my teeth.. I used an example of a thread that started off as a joke and turned into a food fest.
That was not threatening to me.. just an example...

To give credit where due...

Donn has posted quite a few nice gardening threads.

So you decided to take the job of War Czar after all? I can see how you wouldn't have time for the forum.

One of the reasons I joined this forum was the humorous posts by the one and only "Memphis Mike". He had me rolling on the floor more than once. I've talked to him on the phone a few times and he's just a really good man. A fine boat builder too. If indeed he is leaving the WBF, It's our loss. A sad day for me.

That guy that said he was leaving is still posting. When he clearly stated that he was leaving I followed Stephen Colbert's methodology and put Mike on my "Dead to Me" list.

It seems he has found a way to talk to me from the dead, go figure.
