HEEELLLLLOOOOOOOOOO the home alone thread

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.

HEEELLLLLOOOOOOOOOO the home alone thread

Postby rwhen » Fri Jan 19, 2018 4:02 pm

And here we go again, let's start at the beginning:

Back to a new home again for us HOME aloners!!! 2006 was the first one...we must be having fun.

The original thread was started when I was the only person online on TORC and it felt like I was the kid in "Home Alone", everyone had left off on vacation and I was there to do my best or worst on my own. (just so folks know, back in 2006, it was unusual to be the only person on TORC at any given time)

From that time it has changed into a sort of welcome thread and a place for all the friends to check in and give an update on where we are and what we are doing daily or just from time to time.

Like the last incarnation of the HELLLLLLOOOOO....

I am again going to change things up on this new thread. I have been doing shout outs for years now and I love remembering all the people who have visited the thread. It has grown quite large and many have never replied from the first post here.

So I am going to remember you all in this first post and from that time forward, SHOUT OUTS will go to posters who are currently posting, adding in new posters as they return.

I hope that made sense. And in no particular order:

SHOUT OUTS: TELTA ,Scribbles, Vanadarlin', basilllllly, Tooks, Calma, Iris, CR, Imi, Frelga Lady, portia, DUBSIES, RUNZIES, TYGGIES, Rosie lass, eliana, Tarina, Rowan, heliona, kaya, Jae, Lin, Sil, Luthy, SuperNova, P darlin' J, Parm, Guru, oldtoby, Lewie, hamlet, Bilbo25, Efffff Teeeee, Erinhue, sabbwong, Ashke Verasca, Edmond, LadyKat, Melwa, misabella, MiddleGirth, Izzy, Sable, Siddie, BagginsGirl, Kaya, Crystal Seed and Lanastus.

vison Alex

I am not trying to hurt anyone's feelings, but this gets crazy huge to do everyday (I don't mind, but I have to have a starting place when we begin a new thread.) :D I hope that all the folks who have visited over the past seven years will all come back and post again.

As ever....my usual sign off...

:hihi: Hello

and

:hihi: Bye for now


:grouphug:
Love is as big or as little as a hug!!

vison! Alex!Rowanberry!OldToby

I will always treasure and remember your appreciation. Thank you. -2007 WCA's
Overwhelmed by your support and appreciation. Thank you. - 2008 WCA's

The Expected Party!! is now on the road to Gondor to celebrate. Join us.

And getting into trouble with Rally The Eldar.

Hellooo to all! Greetings from Belgium, where it is grey and cold and icy, and is thus the perfect cocoon-weather.
Such a fine thread, surely there must be fries provided... with mayonaise.

Alas and hello new thread! Great to see so many smiling and familiar faces.

Of course there has to be chocolate!! I can't live without it and this world allows me all I can possibly want since now it is a major no no of my diet. With diabetes I will take my chocolate anywhere I can and here is a great place with great friends.

So Bilbo25 what is that dish of which you speak. It does not sound very inviting by its name but perhaps I am just ignorant of something wonderful that I have never had.

I love Lumpia!!! Can never get enough of that so I will be sure we have some for the party as well. A great Philippine dish!! Deep fried and so very addictive!

stroopwafel is a waffle made from two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel-like syrup filling in the middle. (copied and pasted).

HEEELLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Did I stumble on to the cooking thread? :shock: I LOVE FOOD!!!

Hey Calma.....Westminster is right around the corner!

Jae and Kaya. *glomp* 8) to see you both here!!

basilly, VANADARLIN'...Tooks, Bilbo, Frelgalady, CR, Irisdear, Nin....did I miss someone?

Sad day today ... our dear OldToby lost his fight with cancer, he fought SO many years and has been so brave. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time. We loved you so, dear kind sir. Your wit was always appreciated. You will be missed. I am ever reminded of a poem when a friend passes...

From Four Weddings and a Funeral:

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message 'He is Dead'.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
Love is as big or as little as a hug!!

vison! Alex!Rowanberry!OldToby

Maybe you're just out of practice. It took me a few minutes to get back into the swing of things here. As you can see above, I'm not quite like I used to be.
So, how's everybody's 2018 starting out? Very sad to see one of ours go
