    I still enjoy the forum greatly, but, I would always read every "Pat Post" to see how he brought forth his wisdom.

    I did a search the other day and it was a topic where Pat had added his wisdom to it. I thought how wonderful it was to be able to still have him contribute.

    When you moderate 50% of the interesting people off the board...remember, the other 50% ain't going to live forever.



    I'm sure there's a lesson in here somewhere.

    I don't think I would say that TS.Com has diminished but there is a void that was not there not that long ago ... There are many contributors who are very knowledgeable and have a lot of insight on many subjects to take up the slack ... The fact that someone is missed says something about that person, but to say that life don't go on without them or there is a diminished value to things others have to offer is pushing it a little ... May all of those that have left us, Rest in Peace as the rest of us move on but remember them for what we valued in them ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Strange,

    I was thinking the same thing today, where had Neil been? Hopefully he is either in a ice shanty or reliving a honeymoon some place.

    I still miss Pat's wisdom around here.

    Boy, ain't it the truth.

    Proves that life is short, and gets darn shorter as the days pass.

    I miss my shooting buddy, Bob Gallant, from here in Rapid City. We used to travel in his huge motorhome. What fond memories. Never met anyone who didn't really like Bob and his hospitality. The mhome was always open for a cup of coffee or beer.

    His untimley death and his wife, Rita's, returning from a shoot where I was supposed to be driving, (semi hit their motorhome outside Kingman,AZ), kinda put the end to my competitive shooting.

    Think of them often, as I do of Pat. Pat and I had some great phone and email conversations.

    Neil is touring the olde world. No obvious reason why he shouldn't return to the new world in good health and not have to worry about the next world for a while yet.
