Class of '02 v4: 2015 - now we are 12

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

They wound up not doing the surgery, they found some anomalies in her pre-op blood work. She is anemic (low red blood cells) and her blood is not sufficiently coagulant (low white blood cells). They gave her a stronger de-worming medicine than we used previously, and put her on an antibiotic to try to kill off what's causing the low blood cell counts. Guess we'll try again next month.

Heather, I feel for you. We packed our entire apartment (and life) in September and I know how difficult it is (even though my husband did 90% of the job)... I hope things happen nicely for you.
Hope your cat's ok.

Jae, congrats on buying the house sweetie, I know I'm late. Life's crazy :roll: :hug: :hug:

Apart from crazy, well things are crazy :roll: hunting for a job... and stuff. Hopefully things happen soon; I need to work. I can't remain doing nothing :roll: drives me nuts.

Vanadarlin' yes we have been back for a little over a month now. We made it back safely though not early enough to see my grandmother before she passed, which I am sad about. At least I was there for the funeral :( :( .
Looking for a job and trying to keep things sane.
My grandfather is in the hospital and is not given much longer. And my dad's mum has Alzheimer or something like that. She did not recognize me when I visited her a couple of weeks ago. Breaks my heart. But if it is their last year(s) then I am glad we came back.

2014 is going to end in a very difficult way I fear... but we're together :) :)

We are about to start turning 13 when you realize we are headed into 2015! How the heck did this much time pass and where did it go?

I am so thankful that I found TORC and that I have met so many of you and gotten to know you so well(even if we did not meet in person). I also am thankful that you have been there with me for this crazy ride called life. So many changes actually for many of us. Several of us are married or in relationships that had not even started back then. I know of babies for a couple who had barely met before coming online and TORC.

We have all aged like fine wine and are so much better then we were then. Thank you for being there TORC and the members of 2002!! :drink: :hug:

I re-registered under the name I'm using now.....

On the 30th of March, 2002!

Yet, I was here years earlier under the pseudonym of HELM'S DEEP until my account got some how broken.

At the time was some difficulties living out of my Ford Falcon Utility in and around the [CBD and outer suburbs of [Sydney.

Using the computers in many of the local libraries and internet cafes (When I had the money for it!)

Can anybody find any of my old posts. That might give you some idea of when I had originally joined .

Back in those days, I used t read and comment here all the time or at least once a day.

In the time it took to complete two trilogies, those times have changed!

And once again, despite saying it wouldn't happen...I ended up taking a massive break. And once again, I have returned.

It's a new year! It's been too long since I've been here, and it's about time I got back!

Vanadarlin' may 2015 bring you some time to indulge more in what you love doing :) . And may it be filled with joy, love and health. :hug:

Guru, let's not make that "stick around" a New Year's resolution we all know it's one we'll fail at. But I certainly hope to see more of your posts around the boards ;) ;)

Master Hue, always nice to see you regardless of where :D , wishing you and the Danimal a wonderful 2015.

Telta, hugs are good :hug: always. Glad to see you here as well

HelmHammerhand, welcome in this thread and welcome back. Looks like you're an old soul indeed :P :P ...

Let our 13th TORCiversaries be as exciting as the ones before :) :) ...

A second post :shock: I'm getting better...

I jump in, and 'Hue stops by? That just about makes my year! A face I've missed seeing for far too long...Boss, you're without a doubt one of the reasons I keep coming back.

Telta, I think I'm going to settle into a nice overstuffed recliner and stay for a bit. I may nod off, snore a little, but I plan on being here for the foreseeable future.

Eari, how well you know me. It won't be a New Year's Resolution...I'll just make sure to keep my eyes out for stuff to keep my interest, and keep my focus on the boards. Every day will lead to more exploration...and who knows what kind of trouble I can find. :twisted: =:)

Master Hue I am honored, thank you! :hug:

Thank you Telta, I work so much that Ryan and I see each other at night while he sleeps and I fight to get to sleep. Then he is off early in the morning as I am sleeping and I get home after he has. Not what I call a fun life but it will get better I am sure. Oh and two jobs 6 days a week is too much for anyone and I am too old to want to keep this up for too long. :P :hug:

Eari we have made some plans to do more of our SCA stuff this year! We are both so looking forward to the get away that we have planned. :hug:

But many good wishes to all! And it really is lovely to see familiar names at the first glance.

*takes a peek, pokes around a bit* Familiar faces, I like. :D Hello everyone, it's been a while. The usual, you know: work, life. But I have been sneaking about the last couple of days, reading here and there. Feeling nostalgic, with images of middle earth filling my head. Unfinished tales and unsettled scores... Though I live mostly with images than with words of late. Ah, we'll see. Come what may... :)

LOL! Nice to see you, Hue. :D And actually, when May comes work at least ought to have settled down a bit, or it all will have escalated that much by then that we've all ended up fired. :Q :P Either way, more time to be creative!

*Wanders in from a land far away*

I'm not sure why I came back to TORC tonight but it is good to see so many familiar names still kicking around on the boards. However, I was deeply saddened tonight to learn of Rowenberry's passing. :(

I also came across Luthy's post and shared in her nostalgia for the board of old and the adventures that I shared with so many in this thread (and also learned she is about to have he second child this summer.) Life was so much simpler back in 2002 yet TORC was such an amazing place for a time in my life and some friendships made here will be a part of my life forever.

I do not know when I will pass by these boards again but I'd like to say THANK YOU to each person here who I shared so much creativity and imagination which contributed to many of my life accomplishments and personal growth.

TORC will always be a special place because of what we all created on these boards. <3

So True the Arrow, So Steady the Hand

No word in your quiver goes errant,
no thought from your bow is misspent,
no image falls short of your target,
so true are the arrows thus sent.
Your heart with a steady compunction
pulls the bowstrings few others could ply,
your story does more than just function--
your steady hand helps my heart fly!

Thank you Parm for your wonderful poem. :heart:
