: I have read, carefully, your posts & numerous private messages. All your words touched me. They did so, even though I expected such a reaction.
: Two factors, though, made this a MUCH easier, much QUICKER, decision than I anticipated it to be. One is positive. One is negative. Figures!
: The positive one is an e-mail from Ros. Ros, I shed tears this morning when I read it. I will NEVER forget what you wrote!
: The negative was a simple, one word e-mail from a Mary ... no, not any of our Marys ... this is a Mary who is a member of the crowd that loves to torment us. It said only, "BYE!"
: No way, no how, will I let someone gloat like that. More importantly, by far, we can not let down all our very good friends. I will never knowingly do that.
: We will proceed. There are going to be more bumps, I know, but we have a Gathering to prepare for, a Director's Cut about to be released, and the good graces of all of you. What more could a LOTM Web Master ask for?
: Thank you, one & all!
: PS - To the person who asked Elaine if Rich was just blowing off steam ... I guess, yeah, in the end, I was!
Well, here I am again - 'tail end Charlie' as per usual!! I've just finished reading your post - and didn't even stop to read the others that came after yours!! I couldn't!! I needed to get right down to writing - I needed to say THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! Bless you, Rich! Bless Elaine! Bless every one of your children! Bless your Grandmother! Bless your brother! Bless your grocer! Bless your auto repair guy!... I daresay I don't have to tell you - I am one very happy person!! And I am sure EVERYONE in Mohicanland is rejoicing too!!
Today has just been 'the pits'!! (And just when it seems things couldn't get any blacker - they can! The lights have all fused upstairs, a wire has 'shorted' and by golly, I am now truly IN THE DARK!!) BUT - I was trying so very hard to be positive. But all I could manage was, 'I'm positive Rich is going to shut down that Board!' 'I'm positive Rich is sick of the whole shebang!' 'I'm positive Rich and Elaine have had more than they can stomach and will tear the whole site down!' Indeed, I truly felt I had already entered the 'grieving process' - and was struggling to come to terms with the idea that a huge part of my life was now in the past. I just couldn't imagine the magic of Mohicanland gone forever!! As you can see - 'Positive' is not really my strong point, I'm afraid!!
But - 'reading' I can do!! I checked into Mohicanland tonight with a great deal of trepidation - to discover 'WE HAD GOTTEN A REPRIEVE'!!! So, as the Gnome says:
YAH! YIPPEEE! HOORAH! HUNH HUNH HUNH!!! (Not sure exactly what that MEANS but it sure sounds good!!)
And ONE (and ONLY one!!)BIG CHEER FOR MARY BYE!! (She couldn't be related to that Colonel Monro, could she? I seem to recall he uttered a short, sharp retort very similar to hers and left us with the same sour taste in our mouths!!) After all, I think it's the least she deserves, in the circumstances!! THANK YOU MARY BYE!!
Yes sir, the Master of Life is indeed good!!
A very happy (OK - ecstatic!!)
