The TVM remembers Calma.

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.

Great video Story! Wish I could play the guitar as well as your wife does.

Of course I can't play at all....my musical instrument of choice is the radio..... :P

Thank you.
"...Their aim in war with Germany is nothing more, nothing less than extermination of Hitlerism... There is absolutely no justification for this kind of war. The ideology of Hitlerism, just like any other ideological system, can be accepted or rejected, this is a matter of political views. But everyone grasps, that an ideology can not be exterminated by force, must not be finished off with a war.” - Vyacheslav Molotov, ""On the Foreign Policy of the Soviet Union", 31 October 1939

Thanks, Tooks! I'm sure I could figure out imgur, it just seems like an awful lot of trouble to go to.

Yes, I'm that lazy. :D

Frelga - I also have not bothered with imgur, that would only be needed if I was uploading my own photos. I'm contenting myself with what I can find to link to off the interwebs. :)

Oooh, pie for breakfast for me, yummm.

Here's a video that makes me smile.

Hope the remainder of your day goes well Tooks. ...... :happydance: :yippie:

Sooooo I've been up here in Bremerton for the last week, (yes. with Darla dog too), visiting with my son and if all goes well I'll be sneaking back home Wednesday.
I was up in Silverdale getting some stuff at Rite aid for allergies ( :P ), when I stopped to say "hey" to the lady tending to the parking lot commenting on how clean it was. She thanked me for noticing and continued on her way.
Saw her a couple more times following that and to make a long story short, you'll never guess in a thousand million years just who she turned out to be.

Turns out she's one of Calma's sisters. ... :shock: :shock: ... Think she was just as flabber ghasted as I was. She'd like to post a few words on the boards to all of you but she is unable to join up
and she never knew Calma's password.
So, if it's okay with all of you, I'll let her know she can post via my account. If all are fine with it she'll come in sometime Saturday the 18th

How's that for a birthday gift Tooks ???

Ninui - That's so cool! How did you manage to figure out that connection? There's always so many little details to try to prepare for our loved ones when we pass on - it's no wonder something like a TORC password would get missed. With the increasing amount of important info we store online, I think it will become commonplace to keep a password book accessible for next-of-kin. Wait that's not very happy. Uhh, I saw the first robin of spring today!

Another happy video - it's still Easter season, right?

Hello to you all ! My name is Willy.. I'm one of Calma's sisters .....


I don't have much to say for I'm not too gifted with words,but I have been wanting to come in here for some time to thank you all for your kindness and well wishes when Micky passed last year. She was my best friend and confidant. She was the best sister ever.
I hope all of you did not grieve too long for her. She wouldn't have wanted that for any of you. Be happy when you think of her. Thank you Parm and Herger for the poems they were heartfelt and came close to shedding more tears but, I made it through them. Tooks your card was lovely. I thank you for it. To all of you who sent or expressed condolences here,thank you.
Thank you, thank you for the love and friendship you gave her and still give her.

Stay safe and healthy. Be good to one another. I'll be "lurking" in the background......

Hi Willy, nice to meet you. Calma was an amazing, funny lady and I am glad I got to know her. We spoke once when I flew home via Seattle on the phone. I know she'd be tickled pink seeing you on Torc!

Melwa ; ..... It took two Sundays, a heartfelt thank you for such a good job and an iced mocha,(which she told me she was going to get after work on the second Sunday), and a pleasant talk
with said mochas while standing by her truck after her work. That is how we got around to finding out who what and where's. Seems like a nice person but getting to know one much better than what it is now, will take more than what I've got right now. I do have her email though. Haven't talked to her since I got back, but I will soon. Only been back a full day.

Happy things. 1950's rock n roll ...... https://youtu.be/wSQ388vnGec and ..... https://youtu.be/zVHCfBBraK0
