All good things eventually come to an end

Why? I do not know.

Over the past ten years, I've been a little bit of Norm, Sam, Cliff, Frasier, Coach, Woody, and the unsuspecting patron who just happened through the door looking for a cold beer.

Some of you will get it, others will not.

Which are you?

Hey, motherflucker

by santeewelding In reply to All good things eventuall ...

I ain't letting you off so easy.

Get yo *** back on that stool. You got more within you than what you know. I'm pretty sure. Soon as I got no more within me, I'll let you know.

Don't see no end to either of us; not, yet.

I'm tempted, I'll let you know. I'm tempted to unhand the whole thing. You know: The whole top-down-thing-of-affairs, where the "PTB" cling to what is all they know. Newspapers, where I learned the old-fashioned way -- they are also going down the tubes, flailing, with what all they think they know. Which, ain't working.

Pursuit of excellence -- that's all I know. I think that is what all you know, too. If not here, then, where?

All good things

by Tigger_Two In reply to All good things eventuall ...

When I walked away in July, there was no power on earth that could get me back. Heck- as far as I cared, I was gone in August of 2009.

Since then, I dealt with terminal disease, the loss of my precious husband, "friends" who weren't, pressure, stress. pressure, stress, and some pressure and stress. Today I have a father who is trying to die and wishes he could, a sister whose health is compromised, in-laws that I could write a book about, and widowhood at a WAY too early age.

You have completely pissed me off a few times. You have also been the light of my day. Everyone knows your name? I know yours, and it isn't "Quitter".

I get it- this whole re-design thing sucks rocks and the life you are living might not be giving you room for that. Been there. Notice anything different about my name? I tossed away my identity once because I thought it might make another poster more comfortable. H*ll, I even apologized to that person at a time when all I could do was cry for hours every day. Color me an ***.

Max, you can't walk away.

I know what it is like to feel so stuffed up that you can't post. Look at anything I posted over the past year plus! All I was, was anger and pain and hurt- lashing out at every one and every thing. Even you... and felt so justified doing so. So "right". While being so wrong.

If you need to, take a page from my book. Just stay away for a bit until you are ready to confront these changes. Better yet, become a part of encouraging the good while identifying the bad.

(((hugs))) Max. We need you where you are.

I'd hug him

by santeewelding In reply to All good things

But, probably, he would shout and point at me.

So what?

by Tigger_Two In reply to I'd hug him

He rather enjoys shouting and pointing- depending on his mood and/or subject matter.

When you are going through ****, all that matters is the people who are willing to go through it with you. Everyone else can be excused.

I know this to be true. I live in ****.

It's all in the labels...

if you call it a flying tackle-grab-takedown it will shield his pride.
You'll both know what it is, though, and that's what matters.

For the squeamish of the gender

by NickNielsen In reply to It's all in the labels...

A man-to-man hug should be referred to as a "chest bump with arm wrap".

somehow sounds much much worse... like a page out of an alternative kama sutra or something..

Life wins out...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to All good things

That's a Finnish saying, used for that time where a person picks some part of themselves back up, despite of grief and troubles.
Letting oneself grieve is important too, there's a time for each.
Good to see that you've made it back.

I have a hard time imagining that Maxwell will retire his soapbox permanently :)
Everybody needs a break from time to time though, from anything.

Don't see a reason for it

by NickNielsen In reply to All good things eventuall ...

I don't see you just up and quitting in such a way that it looks like you can't handle the new TR format.

You'll be back.
