Re: Fond Fairwell
I want to bang my head against the wall for wasting my time reading this thread. It went into the holding tank pages ago. As someone else said never read past page five.
And therein lies the difference, I also remember staying up late reading posts. The difference being I came away feeling I'd learned something.
The place was different when I came here in '05. When it became something else I drifted away so I got to miss the whole split mess. It was all over by the time I drifted back.
Lately I find myself drifting away again. Tonight is the first I’ve been back in a few weeks and the course of this thread is probably the reason why.
But then I'm not a serious sailor. I pretty much just sail up and down the Bay and enjoy being on the water and thinking about one day being able to turn south and keep going.
I'll miss both Chefs. Sailnet needs characters with character; otherwise it will join SailJazz. C'est la vie.
