RE: OT: OT/CHAT


I agree, Rich (don't get used to that balmy weather), and plus, if I log in
and there are almost 200 messages, chances are I'm going to miss reading a
couple that might have said something similar to my response.

It would help (and yes this has been stated several times) if the subject
line is kept current, and also (despite deleting unnecessaries) if enough of
the conversation is left in the message so those of us who have not read the
entire thread can tell what's going on.  I read one earlier with topic
"deer" that just said "cheaper at the dollar store".  I was going to write
back and ask whose dollar store sold deer, but until now I kept that in
check...  oops, it's out.  Well, that finally said, I'm going to go home
now!

Subject: Re: [CHAT] OT:  OT/CHAT

Some of us get into the conversation kind of late. I seem to miss some
good
topics simply because they have been beaten to death prior to my seeing
them.  This, of course, won't stop me from getting in my 2 cents worth.
Hope the rest of you don't mind.  Rich in Z-5, 55 degrees F this pm.
