  • MissTCShore appreciation thread

    I don't know how you do it, put up with all the testosterone here and the stress of your job, but it sure is a nice of you to grace us with your presence. I also like that you keep us informed on the coronavirus front and are able to look at situations with an open mind and not blindly partisan . It's nice having you around keeping the joke and 24 hour threads alive! Without you this place would be dead!

    So Cheers and thanks to you !

      Thanks WSS. I feel like I've fallen down on the job recently, but I'll try to pick up the pace. I let Gard know in a private message, but I'm not sure I've mentioned in any public posts, that my mother was diagnosed almost 2 years ago with dementia. She has declined significantly over the past year and I had been spending a lot of time travelling back and forth (mostly on weekends) to help take care of her. That started last summer. My dad recently had to put her into a nursing home (in December) because she could no longer be at home on her own at any time and be safe. So, now, my life is starting to go back to "normal." Not that I'm looking for sympathy or anything, but this has affected the time I spend on this board (and on the internet, in general). We all have lives outside of the internet and family always comes first in my personal life. Since all of my family lives outside of the Kansas City area, I do travel a lot.

      Anyway, thank you for your kind words.

      And, Fro, you can go to hell.

        My father had dementia. Sucked so badly. He ended up in a long term VA hospital with a wonderful nurse (originally from Ethiopia). He grew to love her and she loved him. She would send me text messages (I was in Michigan and they were in Denver). He got worse and worse and she ended up having to feed him and really care for him. I visited about a month before he passed away in 2011. He was able to have a moment of recognition and remembered my name and asked it it was near my birthday (and he said my birthday), so I quickly told him I loved him and he said it back to me. Most of the time, he was just out of it, so having that 2 minute moment of having him sort of back was awesome. So, you have my sympathies. Dementia really sucks.

              I'm sure he'd try to do so if he could.

                Will neither confirm nor deny.



                Wait, not true. Would definitely confirm.

                        Happy birthday. If you want a birthday experience you will never forget, no matter how hard you try, the Mrs and I would be honored to escort you to the Love Dungeon.

                        I’m sorry to hear about your mom. That’s a tough thing to deal with. I’m glad that your life is returning to some sense of normality. I have no idea who you are, but I have been worried that you were burning the candle at both ends. Working your crazy hours and doing those drives takes a toll. That much driving when you are mentally and physically exhausted can lead to falling asleep, road hypnosis and before you know it you are in a ditch or the hood ornament of a semi.

                        Have a happy birthday and a great year.

                            I don't know how you do it, dealing with all the travails of your personal life while also posting on this board full of misogynistic troll douche bags and also managing to keep an upbeat attitude. Whatever your magic formula is, please keep it up (and also pass some my direction). Cheers!
